Franklin-based Harena Data is partnering with a Canadian company to launch what it calls the world’s largest competitive esports gaming network. The company says Rumbl will allow gamers to compete on an even playing field with stable network connections and low latency.
Harena Data teamed up with WTFast, an acceleration software company in British Columbia, to develop Rumbl. The companies say the network ensures fair competition for gamers and event sponsors by using machine learning to “automatically optimize online traffic for stable, equalized, and accelerated online gaming connections.”
“Rumbl launches as the world’s largest and most fair competitive gaming network in all of esports,” Harena Data Chief Strategy Officer Bill Dever said in a news release. “The technology allows for a seamless and lag-free experience, making it the preferred platform to use for tournaments and gaming events.”
The companies are currently testing the Rumbl platform with a select group of universities in North America. The network is scheduled to launch for all users later this year.
