Content delivery networks use multiple servers at many geographic locations that improves delivery of static, dynamic and streaming content. Content requests automatically routed to the closest servers, by speeding page loads, maximizing bandwidth and providing identical content regardless of high or dense traffic. Depending on traffic, the network's algorithms chooses the best routing options to deliver optimum performance.

Users with high-speed connections often experience loading lags and poor quality, especially when viewing live events or if they are located far from the hosting servers. CDNs minimize latency issues that cause image jitters, optimize delivery speeds and maximize available bandwidth for the viewer.
