Limelight and Ericsson partner on content delivery

Limelight Networks and Ericsson have signed an agreement to collaborate on content delivery and edge cloud services.

Ericsson is partnering with service providers globally to build the Ericsson Unified Delivery Network (UDN) Edge Cloud Platform – a web-scale edge delivery network.

Under the agreement, Limelight’s content delivery technology will be deployed on the Ericsson UDN Edge Cloud Platform to expand its global delivery capabilities and increase delivery capacities.

By providing computing capabilities close to the user or device, edge computing is designed to address increasing data demands and benefit low latency applications such as IoT, gaming, and virtual reality.

“We are always looking for ways to improve the performance and reach of our network. The strength of Ericsson’s partnerships with communications service providers through the UDN Network is a key component of this agreement that enable us to offer even better reach and performance for our customers. We are delighted to work with Ericsson on this initiative,” said Bob Lento, CEO of Limelight Networks.

Marcus Bergstrom, Head of Ericsson UDN, said: “Entering this agreement with Limelight Networks, a leader in content delivery networking and edge cloud services, opens a new chapter for the UDN Network in-line with our strategic plans for our Edge Cloud Platform.”
