Telecommunications provider Level 3 Communications announced on Wednesday that it has been selected by Linden Lab, the creators of 3D virtual world Second Life, to provide high speed Internet access and wavelengths via two 10 gigabits per second ports, connecting Second Life's data centers in San Francisco, California and Dallas, Texas.
Second Life is a 3D online world with a growing population of users, or "Residents," that create and build the world around them, which includes homes, vehicles, nightclubs, stores, landscapes, clothing and games. The Second Life Grid is a sophisticated development platform created by Linden Lab to create a revolutionary new form of shared 3D experience, says the company.
