CDNetworks Adds New Points of Presence in Ireland, Portugal, Romania, and Belgium

Expansion in Europe reduces website loading times, resulting in a better online user experience and increased customer satisfaction

SAN JOSE, California, Dec. 3, 2014CDNetworks has extended its global network throughout Europe for greater coverage in established and growing markets. New points of presence (PoPs) came online this month in Dublin, Ireland, Brussels, Belgium, Lisbon, Portugal and Otopeni, Romania.

“With the growing European economy, especially in Ireland according to Eurostat, we are happy to help companies improve their online experience, resulting in higher customer satisfaction and increased sales,” said Peter Kim, Head of Global SYS Div & US-TX Operation, CDNetworks. “These four new PoPs join our vast European network to ensure complete coverage from Ireland to Romania and Portugal to Sweden.”

The new PoPs are available just in time for the holiday shopping season, so CDNetworks ecommerce customers such as Agent Provocateur, Slyde watches, Joules, and River Island can reach potential new markets with their brands. By having PoPs closer to online shoppers, ecommerce websites load much quicker making the shopping experience more expedient and efficient. Studies by Kissmetrics show that a faster website experience results in increased loyalty and higher incremental revenues. On the flip side, according to Kissmetrics, a one second delay in website page load time can result in site abandonment and lost revenue. CDNetworks decreases site load time and ensures availability of websites and applications to increase customer satisfaction and employee productivity.

CDNetworks is the only content delivery network with true global coverage including PoPs in mainland China, throughout Asia-Pacific, Russia, The Middle East, Europe and the Americas.
