Radian Arc, Blacknut and CTM Launch Cloud Gaming Services in Macau
CTM customers can now enjoy high performance cloud gaming from any device
MACAU – November 21, 2022 – Leading telecommunications provider CTM today announced the launch of cloud gaming services for hundreds of thousands of customers in Macau through a partnership with cloud infrastructure provider Radian Arc and gaming platform Blacknut. CTM customers can enroll in a cloud gaming subscription or add it to their existing plans, starting today.
This partnership allows CTM to offer AAA gaming experiences to its customers for a great value when compared to the cost of traditional video game platforms like PCs or consoles. Customers who add cloud gaming to their existing CTM service packages can now access Blacknut’s large library of over 500 premium games directly on their compatible devices.
This service is powered by Radian Arc’s proprietary GPU Edge technology, which is connected directly to CTM’s network at the local data center level. This allows CTM to provide low latency, low cost, and high performance cloud gaming to consumers via its 5G networks.
“We want to make cloud gaming more affordable and accessible to all audiences,” said David Cook, CEO of Radian Arc. “Our partnership with CTM and Blacknut will improve the cost and quality of gaming experiences as a whole for many CTM customers.”
Ebel Cham, Vice President of Commercial, CTM said, “[By] leveraging CTM’s stable, full fiber infrastructure and ultra-high speed 5G network, I am confident that the partnership between CTM and Radian Arc will provide an unparalleled cloud gaming experience to our customers.”
Radian Arc’s cloud gaming solution uses GPU Edge technology and operator networks to process data as close to the end user as possible. While competing cloud gaming platforms have to accommodate different network requirements of each players’ service providers, Radian Arc and Blacknut can deliver consistent, high-quality entertainment to all CTM customers.
