G-Core Labs, an international provider of cloud and edge solutions based in Luxembourg, has launched a new content delivery network (CDN) point of presence in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina.

According to the service provider, this new location offers customers fast content delivery services with an average response time of 30 ms and is expected to be in demand among broadcasters and online businesses that work with local audiences.

Earlier this year, the company announced its plans for network infrastructure development in Latin America: G-Core Labs will open five new CDN points of presence on the continent by the end of the year. 

Dmitry Samoshkin, G-Core Labs Vice-president of Products, commented: "The point of presence in Argentina is an important element of the Latin American segment of G-Core Labs infrastructure. The country is one of the three leading economies in the region and shows a consistent growth rate of Internet penetration: if today the world network is used by about 70% of the population of Argentina, by 2025, it is expected that 75% of residents of this country will regularly work, buy, watch and play using the Internet. We also note the interest in the region from our global clients from the e-commerce, gaming and media industries".

The point of presence is located in a certified Tier III class data centre. G-Core Labs CDN supports all necessary protocols, including HTTP/2 (by default), SSL and IPv6, and also provides flexible system configuration options.

The global architecture of G-Core Labs CDN, located on five continents, was created by experts on high-load systems. Today, it includes more than 100 points of presence in over 65 cities and more than 5,000 peering partners. The network capacity is 10+Tbit/sec.
