Limelight Deploys MRV for Content Delivery Network

Limelight Networks has deployed MRV's LambdaDriver for its newly built, 10 Gigabit Ethernet Silicon Valley network supporting content delivery services from its Silicon Valley location. Limelight has virtualized its Silicon Valley content delivery location with a fiber optic ring that links multiple data centers throughout the region as an ultra-scalable delivery location not bound by the power, space or networking constraints of any individual data center.

The high-speed data network links facilities in San Jose, San Francisco and Oakland using MRV's LambdaDriver DWDM transport system fitted with the company's 10 Gbps transponders. Limelight is currently deploying a 60 Gbps ring around the region, with the ability to spontaneously expand the network to 800 Gbps without the need for additional dark fiber. In addition, Limelight has standardized on MRV LambdaDriver systems for all new 10 Gbps DWDM networks domestically and internationally. Financial terms were not disclosed.
