Limelight Helps Deliver Media and OTT Content to Customers Worldwide

Bangalore, INDIA, December 8, 2016 – Limelight Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: LLNW), a global leader in digital content delivery, today announced that Microscan Computers is using Limelight’s Orchestrate Platform to deliver over-the-top (OTT) content to customers worldwide.

“We needed a technology partner who can support our daily increasing bandwidth needs, provide stable service and help us deliver high-quality video to even the most remote areas around the globe,” said Sandeep Donde, Managing Director of Microscan Computers. “Limelight has the technology and know-how and provides among the best customer support we’ve encountered. It’s a good feeling to know you’re going to receive this level of support.”

Microscan Computers provides telecom and wholesale bandwidth services to enterprises and consumers in India. Its Skandha Media Services brand specializes in global media and over-the-top (OTT) delivery to subscribers. As more developing countries enter the digital marketplace, it needs to ensure stable service to remote locations at any time on any device.

Microscan chose Limelight’s Content Delivery Network (CDN) to handle Skandha Media Services’ high demand for broadcast quality video, increasing bandwidth needs, and global growth. Limelight delivers on-demand videos to millions of viewers with minimal latency and gives Microscan Skandha Media Services a high-performance cloud storage solution that allows content to reside as close to its audience as possible.

“Linear TV services are the primary means of entertainment for most of the Indian customers in both India and internationally. For expatriates, viewing Indian live channels is their key medium of entertainment and helps them stay connected to their roots while in the foreign country,” said Yogesh Salian, founder of Microscan Skandha Media Services.  “With better internet penetration and bandwidth globally, we’re now able to cater to the increasing demand for OTT content by delivering to any devices and homes around the world.”
