Move Supports Limelight’s Expansion In Key Countries Across the Globe

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: LLNW), a global leader in digital content delivery, today announced it has expanded its Content Delivery Network (CDN) global egress capacity to 28 Tbps, increased the average server capacity by 175 percent, reduced power consumption, and added 11 new Points-of-Presence (PoPs) this year.

Limelight added new PoPs in Brazil, Canada, France, India, Italy, Spain and the U.S., and upgraded more than 20 locations worldwide to address market demand for CDN services and capabilities. The investment supports Limelight’s long-term focus on expanding in key countries across the globe.

In addition to the global network expansion, proprietary software and network upgrades reduced the carbon footprint by nearly 1,600 metric tons of carbon dioxide and reduced power costs by 10 percent this year alone.

“Continued investment in our network and software is paying off, resulting in broader coverage, greater capacity, increased network performance, and a superior quality of experience for our customers,” said Dan Carney, Senior Vice President of Operations at Limelight Networks. “Our unique assets include scale, footprint, reliability, security, and connectivity, which make Limelight one of the highest performing options for delivering online content and addressing edge-computing requirements.”

Limelight is continuously increasing its network capacity to support the growth of online traffic. Limelight caches digital content across 80+ PoPs around the world. Its dense architecture increases cache hit ratios and serves content to users from the fastest location rather than going back to the content origin server.
