NTT DOCOMO is moving beyond conventional telecommunications services by leveraging 5G, VR, AI, IoT and other new technologies to enter new markets. At the same time, the company wanted to improve efficiency across operations. NTT DOCOMO was providing Android OS smartphone firmware updates using its own Firmware Over-The-Air (FOTA) server and adding servers and upgrading network capacity to accommodate traffic demands. The combination of a growing customer base and expanding file sizes dramatically increased the demand on its internal network.
To simultaneously scale to meet new business requirements, NTT DOCOMO decided to move to a CDN. After extensive vendor reviews and internal testing, the company chose Limelight Networks because it offered the best solution for fast, secure content delivery.
Limelight’s architecture supports a high cache hit rate, which results in superior CDN performance for NTT DOCOMO. The company now has a more efficient delivery system and can easily handle unpredictable increases in file sizes and peak network delivery volume.
With high cache hit rates, NTT DOCOMO is able to provide exceptional customer experiences.

***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.
