Pavlov launches high-speed technology for apartments
CHAMPAIGN — Pavlov Media has launched a new technology in the Champaign-Urbana market that will allow apartment communities to get Internet content at "multi-gigabit" speeds, the company announced Monday.
Pavlov has introduced the Tesseractiv Content Delivery Network locally and is preparing similar rollouts in New York, Phoenix, Atlanta, Indianapolis and other markets, a news release from the company said.
Champaign-based Pavlov Media operates in 140 markets across the nation.
The new technology developed by Pavlov enables improved web video streaming, among other things, the company stated.
Pavlov Media CEO Mark Scifres said the company spent years developing ways to boost residential Internet to multi-gigabit speeds.
Most residential Internet speeds are measured in megabits per second, or millions of bits per second. A download speed of one gigabit per second is 1,000 times faster than a speed of one megabit per second.
Pavlov Media will showcase the technology this week at the National Apartment Association's Student Housing Conference & Exposition in Las Vegas.
Founded in 1994, Pavlov Media is one of the nation's largest providers of broadband (video, data and voice) services to apartment communities. The company, through citywide and regional networks, also offers commercial grade services in several of its larger markets.
