Limelight Networks Content Delivery Network (CDN)

Cover Image

The four dimensions affecting delivery present a tough network design challenge, one that Limelight Networks set out to solve when we entered the CDN industry in 2001. Our vision was to deliver an unparalleled online experience to audiences around the world, no matter how large the file, how enormous the library, or how niche the content.


The Limelight Networks CDN fulfills that vision with a single innovative infrastructure that simultaneously handles all four dimensions of the delivery challenge. Our first focus is on scale: We built a delivery infrastructure with abundant resources, instead of trying to mathematically optimize scarce and sparsely distributed components. We also enable delivery of all the titles in your library, not just the popular ones. And to achieve fast, error free delivery, our network architecture bypasses as much of the public Internet as possible.
