Online gaming has exploded into a popular multi-billion phenomenon in just a few short years. Fortunes can be won or lost on a split second in-game decision.
Over 80% of gamers have reported that their maneuvers have been adversely affected because of latency in the gaming experience. At times, consequences worth millions of dollars are on the line, as well as the reputations of individual gamers, and the gaming community has little forgiveness for companies who tolerate a sub-optimal experience. Distribution of gaming infrastructure at the edge is becoming more popular as the demand for performance increases.

- High capacity flow optimization of gaming traffic that stays in geographically specific regions as needed, leading to better performance
