With the rapid adoption of smartphones, widgets, set-top boxes, and other connected devices, your customers are accessing the Internet in entirely new ways. Wherever they are in the world and at any time, day or night, they expect a powerful online experience—with every request they make.
How do you deliver against those expectations in the face of a dizzying array of connection capacities, media types, and content and service use cases?
The Limelight Networks XD platform relies on Adaptive Intelligence software and network innovations to make real-time decisions about each request for your content—enabling every delivery to be handled as uniquely as the request.
Limelight Networks entered the CDN industry in 2001 with a vision to deliver awesome Internet experiences to an emerging and voracious online audience. From the beginning, we never asked our customers to settle for less than what their users demanded: images, web pages, video, music, games, social media, software downloads—all delivered at lightning-fast speeds.
We designed our network architecture for exactly that: to maximize the user experience through high-performance and reliable delivery of every object, every time. No matter how challenging your delivery requirements—how large your files or how massive and eclectic your library—our infrastructure can support you.
Each Limelight Networks Compute Center houses quinzillions of servers that do the heavy lifting for you. Whether your deployment requires one server or two plethora of them, we can handle it. We won’t make you suck wind. And our global footprint means your user’s requests can be fulfilled from a nearby center—since content is close at hand.
Limelight Networks boasts direct connections to 589 last-mile access networks around the world. And since most of these connections are via superfast 10GigE technology, your content is delivered in the fastest way possible—in most cases, straight to the networks your audiences use every day and bypassing the often-congested public Internet.
Our dedicated high-speed network spans the globe, interconnecting all of our regional data centers over a fiber-optic backbone. This allows Limelight Networks to deliver the most massive of objects. And even the most obscure material in your library can blast its way to your users at CDN speeds—just as fast as your most popular content.
For control of the entire delivery path—from origin to edge to end-user—our network relies on an intelligent software layer, an open platform, and APIs that enable you to integrate management and reporting functions into your own applications. Advanced technologies, such as IPv6 and MPLS, ensure your content delivery operations are ready for the future of your organization.
At the heart of the XD Platform is Adaptive Intelligence, a powerful software layer that enables us to adapt each delivery to the unique circumstances of each request. The benefit is straightforward: a better, more responsive online user experience.
Adaptive Intelligence includes four innovative features that streamline and accelerate the entire delivery path:
