The Network

Powered by massive bandwidth and a single, global ASN, the Limelight network is one of the world’s largest, private networks optimized for delivering digital content. Spanning the globe with over 80 points-of-presence (PoPs) and 11TB/s of egress capacity, the Limelight network has successfully delivered some of the world’s biggest Internet events. More than capable of handling spikes and user volatility, the Limelight network ensures that your digital content is delivered with the best Quality of Experience possible without exposing your business to the vagaries of the public Internet.


EdgePrism Software

The heart of the platform—EdgePrism—is the Orchestrate platform’s advanced caching proxy software, designed to handle events of massive scale with the lowest latency, best reliability, and highest origin offload with any size website or file library. Advanced acceleration and optimization features ensure both cacheable and uncacheable content is delivered with the lowest response times.


EdgeQuery Reporting

You need reliable, consistent, fast delivery of your digital content every time, everywhere. But you also need to understand your audience’s behavior. EdgeQuery offers real-time reporting capability via a powerful, edge-based compute platform designed to bring you this critical behavioral data. Operating at the speed of digital transactions, EdgeQuery provides you the insights you need to make business decisions that will provide your audiences with the best possible Quality of Experience, and drive your revenue.



Sometimes incorrect or outdated content must be removed from delivery caches, and you need to update or replace it as quickly as possible. SmartPurge, Limelight’s revolutionary new content invalidation system, immediately ensures targeted content is made globally inaccessible regardless of other services or configurations. With SmartPurge, targeted content is made instantly unavailable to your audience even as it is being physically removed from the global network.



We understand that each customer situation is unique. That is why we have exposed powerful APIs that enable flexible control over all aspects of delivering your digital experience.

  • Storage—through JSON RPC and other access means, these APIs support both single file and multipart file uploads as well as methods for file and directory upload, listing, copying, renaming, and deleting.
  • Reporting—via REST API, you can access all the traffic, content, and IP connect reports available via the Orchestrate Control management portal. Data is returned in either JSON or XML format for easy integration with enterprise reporting, IT monitoring, and other systems.
  • Video—through the extensive REST API library, developers can enable applications to perform actions programmatically that are normally carried out within the Orchestrate Video web interface, enabling complete workflow integration to existing systems.

Control Management Portal

Limelight Orchestrate Control is a powerful web-based interface for managing all aspects of publishing and delivering your digital experiences through the Orchestrate platform, including self-service configurations, detailed traffic reports, turning-up and managing video streams, and access to support resources. With Control at your fingertips, you get the tools to maintain the highest Quality of Experience for your digital audiences.
