OMAHA, Neb., March 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- West Corporation (“West” or the “Company”), a global leader in technology-enabled services, announced today that enterprise customers using West’s Studio can now select from a range of content delivery network partners for secure and reliable high-quality streaming. Along with Studio’s native Amplify eCDN offering, customers may choose from Hive, Kollective, or Ramp eCDN solutions to best fit within their technology ecosystem.
