Edgegap is pleased to announce today the appointment of Vincent Archambault as its Chief Strategy Officer. Vincent has more than 15 years of experience in the gaming industry and will be applying his knowledge of the gaming market to help studios with their infrastructure needs.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the team here at Edgegap. Having been on the other side of the fence for many years as a Game Producer, I can vouch for Edgegap’s product as being what the gaming market is currently sorely missing.”
Edgegap’s technology helps game studios reduce lag and improve player experience by harnessing the power of edge computing. With 10X more regions covered than the biggest cloud provider, the company’s patented technology automatically selects the fastest server in its infrastructure for a determined group of players. Integration is easy, and can help game studios open new markets all around the world by improving the player experience in locations where it was previously impractical.
Again in 2020, Edgegap has been selected to prepare and support the upcoming NFV & MEC Plugtests (Multi-Access Edge Computing) at ETSI in the upcoming few months. We are working with ETSI and the various vendors involved in the Plugtests to develop the test plan for MEC interoperability. As leader in edge computing industry, Edgegap provides their expertise to share the tests and provide support through interop events between vendors. We are proud to support such project and encourage NFV and Edge vendors to participate. To join the plugtest you can follow the url below and register:
