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 the Edgio CDN allows Cogeco Peer 1 to focus on its core business.
Since partnering with Edgio, 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 Edgio’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.
