The “Fortnite Effect On Networks and How ISPs are Working To Improve the eSports Experience

Online multiplayer gaming is no longer the preserve of a small number of avid fanatics. It’s gone mainstream and is attracting a populist wave as manifested by the “Fortnite effect”. At my EdgeNext Summit in October, Haste, a network service that improves network performance and user experience for gaming, discussed how Fortnite and other online multiplayer gaming platforms have become leading edge applications. In this video from the show, Adam Toll, Founder and Board Director at Haste, presents how their technology and Ericsson’s Edge Gravity platform, and ISPs, are working together to deliver a superior gaming experience to players.
