Limelight Networks delivers record online traffic levels in December 2017
Limelight Networks announced that it delivered record online traffic levels in December 2017, a 21% increase over its previous record set in November 2017 and a 23% increase from December 2016. Record traffic volume was driven by several large customers choosing Limelight to meet the high demand for content during their busy and performance-sensitive holiday season. This was in addition to regular day-to-day traffic sent over the Limelight content delivery network. Despite the record demand, Limelight's focus on service quality resulted in an historic low number of trouble tickets. In addition, with system-wide software and infrastructure upgrades, Limelight servers are delivering record traffic per server. Compared to December last year, Limelight delivered over 20% more traffic, using 5% fewer servers and the higher service quality resulted in almost 50% fewer customer incidents.
