LIMELIGHT MANAGED CDN

Now service providers who also deliver content to end users can provide a better experience to users while reducing backhaul costs. With Limelight Managed CDN, you can accelerate your popular content while reducing the need to retrieve other providers’ assets from remote origin. Instead you’ll serve that content from high-performance cache embedded within your own network, saving money while delivering a better user experience.

CHALLENGES ACCESSING AND DELIVERING RICH CONTENT

Growing demand for streaming video, rich media, gaming and other content including your own assets puts pressure on your bottom line and on your network. Retrieving content from off-net incurs backhaul costs that can grow out of control, especially in regions where bandwidth is expensive. In addition, it can degrade user experience due to risk of higher latency and connection reliability problems retrieving content.

HOW EDGE CACHE REDUCES COST AND IMPROVES QUALITY

Limelight Edge Cache lets you accelerate the content your subscribers value most, improving user experience at scale while reducing the backhaul cost of retrieving that content. The plug-and-play solution tightly integrates your network with one of the world’s largest global edge cloud networks. You may even be able to capture revenue from traffic being delivered through your network. Limelight Managed CDN integrates world-class delivery into your local network — like a private local warehouse for a global package delivery service.

HOW IT WORKS

Limelight Managed CDN lets you directly serve content from your own network. The servers are secure, high-performance CDN caching and distribution systems used around the world to drive Limelight global network delivery. By embedding this power within your network with dedicated connections to your routing systems, you turbocharge your delivery. Instead of repeatedly retrieving from a distant origin, you can serve cached content directly from local on-net systems. For lowest latency and maximum connection reliability, Edge Cache servers use high-speed solid-state devices for caching content.
