Bit Rate Limiting
Control the rate at which Akamai serves content to end-users. You can adjust the speed depending on file size or elapsed download time.
How it works
The behavior uses a bit rate and a threshold you define. Once the threshold is met, the content managed by your Property Manager configuration is delivered at that bit rate.
You can use it to prevent media downloads from progressing faster than they're consumed, or to set up various end-user experience tiers of delivery performance.
The prerequisites for use, options, and default settings can vary by product. See the applicable product's documentation for these details as well as some examples of its use.
