Limelight sets new online traffic delivery record

Friday 17 March 2017 | 16:02 CET | News
Limelight surpassed on 14 March the previous record for peak traffic across its global content delivery network (CDN), which was set on 13 December 2016, by over 20 percent. Limelight also surpassed its previous record for total sustained traffic delivered over a 24-hour period, set on 25 December 2016, by more than 15 percent. The previous records were driven by seasonal volume from significant one-time events. In contrast, the new records were driven by Limelight receiving a larger share of pre-planned and routine traffic from several of its Limelight's largest customers.
