Level 3 Strings Fiber For Democratic Convention


Level 3 Communications has installed more than five miles of fiber-optic cable in Denver in preparation to provide video network services to support TV broadcasters and online video from the Democratic National Convention from Aug. 25-28.

The telecommunications company, the official live video and content-delivery services provider for the four-day event, installed the redundant fiber links to connect the Pepsi Center and Invesco Field to its network.

Level 3 will deliver high-definition and analog video feeds to national and international broadcast networks from both venues. It will also provide live, “HD-quality” video streaming online worldwide and Web site caching for DemConvention.com, the convention’s official site.
