May 17, 2019
Limelight Networks, a provider of edge cloud services, has opened its 100th Point-of-Presence (PoP). Since January 2018, Limelight has increased global network capacity by 40 percent to 42Tbps of egress capacity.
In addition to expanding the number of PoP locations around the globe, Limelight’s technology is also embedded deeper into service provider networks through its partnership with Ericsson. This strategic initiative reduces latency even further and increases online video quality.
“At Limelight, we’re passionate about delivering the highest quality online video and edge cloud services. Our increased footprint and dispersed infrastructure provides fast connectivity around the world to best meet the growing demands for low latency video delivery,” said Dan Carney, Senior Vice President of Network Operations at Limelight. “While still in its early stages, we’re pleased with our expansion plans and our work with Ericsson in building out new PoPs in locations that are most important to our customers and to meet increasing traffic.”
