With ultra low-latency and guaranteed throughput via our uncontended, private media network, FastLane eliminates the congested internet from your route and ensures reliable delivery times, every time.

Flexible & scalable

Whilst Telcos offer fixed, contracted connection speeds that can’t be changed mid-term, FastLane provides media teams with a flexible, low-latency solution to deliver resource-intense cloud compute workflows with granular control and studio-grade security. (i.e. VFX rendering, virtual workstations,transcoding, processing etc). {/} {/} Offering “burstable” connectivity, customers can utilise FastLane and the cloud as and when they need to.

“Using Sohonet FastLane gave us a solution which far exceeded Google’s standalone capabilities, and which just worked. We knew we had a solution in place which would allow us to scale up our render capacity seamlessly to meet demand”
