News: ESL Gaming and Network Next Partner to Advance Network Performance in eSports Games
We're happy to share that we have partnered with ESL Gaming, the world’s largest esports company, to boost network performance for ESL players. The first game we will partner on is Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO).
Network Next is a radically new way of linking networks together. A new internet built on a neutral marketplace where thousands of private networks compete on performance and price to carry traffic. Network Next's revolutionary solution is delivering significant packet loss and jitter reductions, and is lowering latency by as much as 300ms.
ESL Gaming has been shaping the industry and leading esports and gaming innovation on a global scale for decades. Their partnership with us is another example of their never-ending mission to bring world-class gaming experiences to their players.
The internet doesn't care about games. Gamers experience this every time they play and get bad network performance. At Network Next, we think this just isn't good enough, and it's our mission to fix this, not just for games, but for all applications that need better network performance than the internet can provide today.
"Over the last year, the pandemic has caused the esports landscape to dramatically change and we have seen concurrent user numbers soar,” said Trevor Schmidt, Vice President of ESL Online. "We want to ensure that the growing fanbase continues to enjoy the best possible gaming experience, and we believe Network Next can help make that happen."
More details of the partnership will be released in the coming weeks.
