Jason Vigus, Product Manager for Managed Service - Cogeco Peer 1





Cogeco Peer 1 Challenge: Growing the managed IT business while keeping up with customer requirements for speedy content delivery.

Customers rely on Cogeco Peer 1 to provide the best possible end-to-end website experience. In Ecommerce, that means a reliable website that delivers content to customers fast and without delays — helping to convert visits to revenue.

Cogeco Peer 1 had its own in-house Content Delivery Network (CDN) for customers in North America and Europe but was limited in providing coverage worldwide as geographical demand grew. They needed a CDN partner who could expand with its business to provide reliable, speedy global coverage.

Cogeco Peer 1 Solution: Using Limelight's CDN allows Cogeco Peer 1 to focus on its core business.

Since partnering with Limelight, Cogeco Peer 1 has achieved a marked increase in its customers’ traffic, saw significant improvement in delivery speed, and is able to implement seamless expansion into more countries.

With Limelight’s feature-rich, customizable, and global CDN, Cogeco is able to get its customers’ websites and services closer to their own customers. Speed in delivery increases conversion rates for Ecommerce customers and ensures a positive experience for all users.

The most important CDN features for Cogeco Peer 1’s customers are footprint, speed, and the ability to offer customized CDN options.

Key features Cogeco Peer 1 benefits from include:

Increased scalability

Offloading website traffic to the Limelight CDN provides Cogeco Peer 1 customers with a solution that scales as needed and reduces load on their website infrastructure.

Improvements in delivery speed

Cogeco Peer 1 saw a significant improvement in the speed of delivery of content for clients’ websites.

Larger global footprint

Providing solid performance in new and existing geographies, to bring their clients’ websites closer to their end users.

***The whole is greater than the sum of our parts. Many of our client case studies and products were originally part of Limelight, Layer0 or Edgecast. Limelight acquired Layer 0 then Edgecast to become Edgio, the complete platform you have today, so we’ve aggregated those case studies in a single library.
