Limelight Networks surpasses previous peak traffic record by over 20%

Limelight Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: LLNW), a provider of digital content delivery, delivered record online traffic levels on Tuesday, March 14, 2017, across its global content delivery network (CDN), the company said.

Limelight surpassed the previous record for peak traffic, which was set on December 13, 2016, by over 20%.

Limelight also surpassed its previous record for total sustained traffic delivered over a 24-hour period, set on December 25, 2016, by more than 15%.

The previous records were driven by seasonal volume from significant one-time events.

In contrast, its most recent records were driven by Limelight receiving a larger share of pre-planned and routine traffic from several of its largest customers.

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. Limelight is also consistently rated as one of the leading providers by Cedexis, a third-party performance testing site.
