WEBMOBI Description

WebMobi Network Solutions, or just WebMobi, is a digital media content delivery provider that delivers content to the web and mobile platforms. The company is based in Kerala, India and has 17 PoPs in the US, Europe, Asia and Australia. Their edge locations are mostly concentrated in the US and despite being headquartered in India, the company only has 1 PoP the country, in the city of Cochin.

Presenting itself as a one-stop-shop for all things media delivery, WebMobi offers on-demand ‘packages’ that include bandwidth, storage and transcoding and recording minutes. There are two versions of the packages: standard and premium. The premium package includes transcoding and recording.

According to the WebMobi site, the company offers static content delivery as well. Bandwidth however, always seems to be sold in combination with storage.

LIMELIGHT Description

Limelight Networks is an Arizona-based CDN provider that owns and operates its own content delivery network. The company was founded in 2001 and has offices in the US, Europe and Asia.

Limelight offers regular CDN services for static content, website acceleration, video streaming (Limelight Orchestrate) and cloud storage. Some of the services in the Limelight portfolio came to be from a variety of acquisitions done by the company in the past. Acquired companies include AcceloWeb (website acceleration), Kiptronic (video) and Delve Networks (video).

In 2006, the CDN provider was sued by Akamai Technologies, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and later by Level3 over alleged patent infringements. In 2015, after a long string of decisions, came an end to the back-and-forth between Akamai and Limelight: Limelight was held liable for direct infringement of an Akamai-held patent by the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. In response to the ruling, Limelight Networks (NASDAQ:LLNW) fell greatly.

As of today, Limelight is still fighting a portion of the August 2015 decision, prolonging an already long-standing dispute against Akamai.

Limelight serves, or has served notable customers such as Disney, EA Sports, MySpace, Harpo Productions, MTV, Nintendo, Heineken and Carrefour. With the exception of the latter two, these customers are seemingly no longer with Limelight.
