The Apex Group is busy promoting Level 3, a secure network management and content delivery service.
“Level 3 is involved with CDN, IP, transport, video distribution services, anything that runs over a physical IP backbone,” says Ian Wilkinson, Sales and BD Manager, The Apex Group.
The core business of Level 3 is a physical network, and the company has also added on a broadcast contribution service on top of that. The network is used for broadcast feeds including sporting events.
Level 3, which is based in Broomfield, Colorado works with broadcasters and telecom operators including Etisalat, Du and STC.
In terms of business growth, Wilkinson says: “On the broadcast side business is going very well. There are TV channels popping up, we are distributing more widely, you have got the Arabic expatriate population is all around the world so there is a market for sending Arabic traffic out and bringing expat traffic in, so it is good. This year has been a definite uptick.”
Wilkinson is also impressed with GITEX in 2012, which he said is the biggest edition of the show he has ever seen. “I’m surprised by how big it is. The length of time it takes to walk from one end to the other – It’s impressive. I’ve never seen the corridors so full and so much variety here. It appears to be completely packed.”
