Limelight Networks Sets New Content Delivery Traffic Record

Surpasses previous online traffic record set in November 2017 by more than 20 percent

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 11, 2018

Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: LLNW), a global leader in digital content delivery, today announced that it delivered record online traffic levels in December 2017, a 21 percent increase over its previous record set in November 2017 and a 23 percent increase from December 2016. Record traffic volume was driven by several large customers choosing Limelight to meet the high demand for content during their busy and performance-sensitive holiday season. This was in addition to regular day-to-day traffic sent over the Limelight content delivery network (CDN).

Despite the record demand, Limelight’s focus on service quality resulted in an historic low number of trouble tickets. In addition, with system-wide software and infrastructure upgrades, Limelight servers are delivering record traffic per server. Compared to December last year, Limelight delivered over 20 percent more traffic, using 5 percent fewer servers and the higher service quality resulted in almost 50 percent fewer customer incidents.

“We’re very pleased with the multidimensional improvements in our performance, functionality and efficiency. Those improvements were the underpinning of our success in efficiently serving record-breaking traffic,” said Dan Carney, Senior Vice President of Operations at Limelight. “Given our global reach, connectivity, secure and private interconnection, and connectivity to last mile providers, we’re more than a Content Delivery Network. Our capabilities are introducing us to new opportunities in the edge computing space. We look forward to continuing to serve our customers who trust Limelight to solve increasingly challenging business problems.”
