Limelight Networks Wins Frost & Sullivan 2012 Global Product Line Strategy Award

Frost & Sullivan recently recognized Limelight Networks (News - Alert), a global leader in digital presence management, with the 2012 Global Product Line Strategy Award for excellence in the Online Video Platform market.

Limelight's OVP solution is uniquely positioned in the market to solve content providers' needs to deliver a streamlined viewer experience.

In a statement, Loren Johnson, Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) research analyst, said, "Limelight is a superior online video platform market contender, because the company has obviously figured out the value that both OVP and content delivery networks offer to the online video management marketplace."

"Its combined solution is one of a kind in the OVP market; Frost & Sullivan firmly believes that the company has created a unique integrated solution that is exactly what the market needs,” Johnson said. “As the OVP market continues to grow and shake out weaker vendors, Limelight is well-positioned to grow its market share faster and more consistently than its competitors."

Limelight Networks is the only OVP vendor with its own native content delivery network, allowing it to create single-source online video management package solutions that no other vendor can offer.

The firm offers multi-platform, cross-functional management tools that are fully native and consistent.

"We are committed to helping customers manage and deliver a rich media-optimized digital presence and to helping ensure a seamless user experience for their viewers everywhere, on any device," said Edgardo Nazario, senior vice president of Product Management at Limelight. "We're honored to be recognized as an industry leader by Frost & Sullivan. We will continue to drive innovation in this rapidly-evolving marketplace."
