Verizon Digital Media Services has deployed Quick UDP Internet Connections (QUIC) across its content delivery network, with 125 points of presence globally. The transport protocol, developed by Google, improves web page load and transaction speeds. Verizon Digital Media Services customers can enable QUIC through a simple rules engine change that takes effect within minutes, at no additional cost.
“We are always working to improve our network performance for our customers, who are in the business of providing digital media to their end users as quickly, securely and cost-efficiently as possible,” said Frank Orozco, chief technology officer, Verizon Digital Media Services. “Whether it’s streaming a widely watched sports event or accelerating a shopping cart transaction, every millisecond counts.”
“We recently expanded our relationship with Verizon Digital Media Services to implement QUIC across many of our sites, including Logitravel, the leading pan-European online travel agency accessed by millions of travellers each year,” said Iñaki Fuentes, CEO of Bluekiri. “Since implementing QUIC, we have experienced a significant improvement in web performance, with visitors now able to access information faster than ever. We couldn’t be happier to help our customers spend less time on planning and more time on actually enjoying the vacations they’ve worked so hard to make happen.”
