TEMPE, AZ: Limelight Networks, a provider of digital content delivery network solutions, announces that Arsenal Broadband has opted Limelight Orchestrate Delivery and Performance services. The latest transition will provide a consistent and engaging digital experience for users of the website Arsenal.com.
  
Arsenal.com covers latest match results, game schedules and profiles of players of the Arsenal Football Club. With millions of daily page views, Arsenal needed a platform that ensures Arsenal.com remains available at all times.
   
Limelight’s Orchestrate Delivery and Performance will provide instant and global accessibility to content over a private network. The solution handles peak loads and flash crowds to give scalability. It provides consistent delivery regardless of the device, geography, or network conditions and provides immediate insight on website traffic, audience, and content performance.

The cloud-based platform minimizes capital investment and staffing, is capable of delivering a high quality experience any time users request to view streaming video, read static content, or look up game results.
    
Arsenal Broadband says that mobile is the biggest source of traffic to Arsenal.com, therefore Arsenal needed a CDN with a mobile solution that could support its mobile users on any device. As quick spikes in site traffic also occur when users look for information about who is playing at a particular day or for live match commentary, match results, or post-match reports, Limelight’s services will help Arsenal Broadband to secure digital content, deliver multi-screen experiences, improve brand awareness, drive revenue, and enhance customer relationships.

“If you haven’t got a CDN that protects you from traffic spikes that come at you like a big tsunami wave, you will find that you will have outages, the Limelight support and implementation team never let us down. The transition from our previous CDN went so smoothly folks didn’t even know when we had moved over,” says John Dollin, Senior Manager, Systems and Operations, Arsenal Broadband.
