We have been handling digital audio since the dawn of the internet age. This has made us the market leader in radio streaming in Germany. And tomorrow, perhaps in interactive, integrated audio.

own points of presence (PoP) in Frankfurt (2x) and Düsseldorf (1x)
We run our own points of presence (PoP), which we have optimized ourselves for audio distribution.
When selecting our locations, we ensured both a large geographical separation and an excellent connection: We are directly connected to the world’s largest internet exchange (DE-CIX) and the four largest German carriers.
Our Connect expansion product gives you an especially high-performance connection: We retrieve the signal directly from your studio with a cable (also redundant, if desired). We take care of organization, technology and service in the same manner as a general contractor (but we also get help in secret – from our parent company ecotel).
Different end devices have different requirements when it comes to qualities and formats. If you wish, we automatically convert your signal to MP3, AAC+ and more.
We can operate a total of 1,750,000 sessions simultaneously. If a few more are needed, we can raise this capacity to >3,500,000 simultaneous sessions at short notice.
To guarantee our 100% availability, we sometimes switch between delivery locations or aggregation layers. Although quite a lot is happening in the background, the listeners notice nothing.
