The gaming landscape is changing and demanding more of your network. You need cutting-edge communications infrastructure for advanced technologies like cloud gaming, AR and VR. As gaming becomes an everyday language for businesses, you must meet the demands of gamification and ensure a high-capacity network. You must also be able to support new delivery models—from free-to-play models to streaming gaming services.
Meeting your toughest gaming challenges.
In such a rapidly advancing industry, there are many challenges you must address to succeed. Supporting current and future gaming demands will require careful planning and a comprehensive mix of infrastructure solutions.
- Decreasing response time: Latency is a huge concern, especially in competitive games and eSports leagues—where a millisecond of lag could mean the difference between winning and losing money. Beyond this, low response times are critical for companies wishing to create a frustration-free experience—which translates into higher adoption. We can help you configure your network for ultra-low latency to meet the high expectations of your audiences, from casual to professional gamers.
- Increasing capacity: The number of players online simultaneously is skyrocketing, with people gaming on both their mobile devices and traditional consoles. The need for high network capacity will only continue to increase as gamification becomes more integrated into everyday commerce and education. With equipment that’s built to scale, you can meet the rising demands of growing audiences, without impacting your customer experience.
- Enabling advanced technology: In order to support new gaming technologies, your network must adapt. AR and VR need significantly more bandwidth and computing power, while cloud gaming and other new content delivery models require entirely new infrastructure. We’ll work with you to create network solutions that will support the latest advancements so you can continue bringing cutting-edge gaming experiences to your audiences.
- Improving security and protection: Cybersecurity is crucial to maintaining the trust of your audiences and meeting important regulations. To protect identities and user data, your network can use dedicated fiber lines that don’t pass through public switches. You can also layer on additional protections to ensure your servers aren’t being brought down by DDoS and other attacks.
