One of the most powerful broadcasting business in the capital area and the only Korean business partner with Netflix.
D’LIVE, founded in 2000 (originally C&M), provides Cable TV broadcast, high speed Internet, telecommunication etc. and one of the biggest broadcasting businesses in metropolitan areas in Korea.

Gradually increasing traffic & expensive transit price.
The amount of Data, D’LIVE needed for its customers, went up quickly, as the number of D’LIVE users gradually increased. Data plans for broadcasting business are different from phone plans since broadcasting businesses charge based on the number of TV and Internet cable rather than the amount of used data. D’LIVE hence needed a more economic way to reduce their transit costs.
What did KINX do?
