On 14 March Limelight Networks reported record online traffic levels across its global content delivery network (CDN), surpassing its previous peak traffic high set on 13 December 2016, by over 20%.

Limelight also surpassed its previous record for total sustained traffic delivered over a 24-hour period, set on Christmas Day 2016, by more than 15%. The previous records were driven by seasonal volume from significant one-time events. In contrast, this week’s records were driven by Limelight receiving a larger share of pre-planned and routine traffic from several of Limelight’s largest customers.

“We’re delighted that our customers continue to entrust us with a growing share of their traffic,” said Dan Carney, senior vice president of operations at Limelight.

“We believe that we are delivering more traffic this year due to the significant performance improvements we’ve gained through software optimisation and the continued expansion of our global footprint. Software optimisation has allowed us to expand capacity at dramatically lower capex levels. The investments we’ve made in our global network resulted in improved quality for our customers, even in the face of high traffic demand. These quality improvements are evident by the continued reduction in calls to our help desk, even as traffic grows.”

Over the last year, Limelight has expanded its network capacity by over 50%, its server capacity by over 70%, and introduced new key software capabilities and enhancements to meet growing customer demands.
