Advection.NET operates streaming distribution server farms at core international network access points so your content is available at the same Internet hubs used by the viewer’s ISP. This means less buffering or wait time for your users.
At each location, we subscribe to Tier 1 bandwidth connected directly to multi-gigabit peering routers, instead of going through layers of second or third tier ISP’s and switches. Being directly on the Internet’s backbone bypasses the sources of congestion that can degrade streaming quality or make downloads take longer.

Leverage our clusters of web, database, and storage servers in redundant datacenters around the world to guarantee the highest availability and performance for your rich media distribution and delivery.
