TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Limelight Networks, (Nasdaq:LLNW), a global leader in digital content delivery, today announced that Magine is using Limelight’s Content Delivery Network (CDN) to deliver live and on-demand content to millions of viewers in Europe.
Prior to partnering with Limelight, Magine was working with a CDN provider, but over time noticed it had limited capacity in Europe to meet customer demands. To ensure the highest levels of availability and performance, Magine implemented a multi-CDN strategy. In addition, they built their own tools to evaluate CDN performance by region, the quality of streams, costs and reliability of each CDN provider. Limelight’s CDN was chosen because of its scalability, reputation, competitive pricing and top performance in their internal testing.
“The CDN is a vital part of our distribution chain and we expect a high quality of service,” said Klas Ahlin, Head of Service Operations at Magine. “Limelight has a solid track record, and we have been happy with the consistent performance across regions.”
“OTT viewers expect a high-quality experience every time they access video on demand and live streamed content,” said Nigel Burmeister, Vice President, Global Marketing at Limelight Networks. “By using Limelight as part of their multi-CDN strategy, Magine can send traffic to the highest performing CDN to ensure the best possible viewing experiences, and we’re pleased to see Magine’s testing show Limelight as a consistent top performer.”
