CDNetworks Delivers Software Downloads for NCsoft's AionTM and Other Popular Online Games in USA and Europe.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- CDNetworks, a top tier, full-service global content delivery network, today announced that it has signed an agreement to deliver game clients and software patch downloads for NCsoft's massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG) across the United States and Europe. The agreement covers all of NCsoft's online games, including wildly popular titles such as Aion, Guild Wars([R]), City of Heroes([R]), as well as the Lineage([R]) series.

"CDNetworks has increased the speed and coverage of our game downloads to our customers across the US and Europe," said Rob Cordero, director of game operations at NCsoft. "Because of these performance improvements, CDNetworks has enabled us to experience record traffic for our online games in these regions."

In the online gaming world, the release of a game patch generates activity by thousands, to hundreds-of-thousands of users - all at the same time. This concurrent access can cause significant network congestion that can adversely affect the user experience. CDNetworks' tier 1 network architecture and optimized PoP deployment enables a large number of users to download large files simultaneously, ensuring fast, stable delivery and a positive user experience.

"The ability of our network to provide outstanding performance, even during the most extreme traffic peaks, is a perfect fit for the massively multiplayer online gaming market," said John Milburn, president of CDNetworks International. "We are pleased to enable NCsoft's customers to enjoy an online gaming experience that is second to none."
