Level 3 lands CDN service deal with eSchool Solutions

Level 3 has signed a deal with education software company eSchool Solutions to improve that company's voice performance and to use Level 3's content delivery network to facilitate a virtual training platform.

Under the new agreement, eSchool Solutions will use Level 3's enterprise voice services to improve voice capabilities and performance, while capitalizing on the inherent cost savings of IP-based voice services. In addition to comprehensive voice solutions, eSchool will use Level 3's CDN services for its new virtual training platform. Level 3's CDN will enable eSchool to offer remote access to crucial internal training tools, thereby improving organizational productivity.

eSchool Solutions provides software to more than 600 school districts throughout the United States and Canada, requiring services that facilitate high-quality communications with its customers and simplify interconnectivity among its various facilities.

"Our services support administrators and teachers in more than 29,000 schools, and we require network solutions that improve our ability to connect with them reliably and efficiently," said Tina Santana, executive vice president and chief financial officer for eSchool Solutions. "Working with Level 3 has enabled us to improve our service capabilities and simultaneously enjoy a cost savings, allowing us to invest in other critical areas of our business and enhance our customers' experiences."
