hover.link is a platform through which organizers, brands, and viewers can attend events and communicate in real time, regardless of COVID-19 restrictions.
Event participants can listen to each other and communicate in the same ways as during concerts, lectures, or offline exhibitions.
hover.link customers are located in different countries in Eastern Europe. To unite all participants on one website, an infrastructure with a wide network and excellent connectivity was needed.
For a long time, hover.link technical specialists used the services of American providers, but they didn’t have decent infrastructures in the target European locations.
On the eve of the next major broadcast, hover.link set themselves the task of improving the quality of their service and finding a vendor with a wide network in Europe.
Why they chose Gcore Streaming Platform
“Streaming is a fundamental part of our platform,” says Alexey Anipchenko, CTO at hover.link. “It’s important for us to get stable operation under dynamic load and broadcast events with the best quality around the world.”
To solve this task, the organizers of online events turned to Gcore.
“The Gcore streaming platform is integrated with a CDN, and this gave us the opportunity to broadcast our events around the world without any delays,” added Alexey Anipchenko.
An important technical advantage
Another important factor was the instant integration of the Gcore service with the hover.link platform.
