Peer5 is a peer-to-peer or p2p CDN, which means that for the distribution of content they redirect traffic from user to user. This also means that they do not have their own servers to distribute content from. As a result, a p2p CDN functions differently from a regular CDN. The best use case scenarios are larger livestreams, and/or very localized content. For a closer look at how p2p CDNs work please read this article.
