Edgemesh, a web acceleration company, was faced with the challenge of delivering fast and reliable websites for their customers, particularly in the ecommerce sector. Their customers required instantaneous response times and high-quality immersive experiences for their shoppers. Edgemesh was responding to 4-5 billion resource-level requests daily and needed a solution that could handle this volume while improving performance. The company's primary focus was on performance, and they needed a solution that could meet this need effectively. The challenge was to find a solution that could execute code at the edge near their customers at blazingly fast speeds, enabling highly personalized and interactive user experiences without any noticeable latency.
About The Customer
Edgemesh is a web acceleration company that helps businesses measure and optimize customer experiences, making site delivery often 2 to 10 times faster for their customers. They do this through both a client-side optimization platform and Edgemesh Server, which enables a simple, seamless transition to a high-performance headless environment. Edgemesh supports media companies and ecommerce customers in almost every vertical, responding to 4-5 billion resource-level requests daily. Their customers depend on them for fast, reliable websites, and they focus on ecommerce acceleration, aiming to provide shoppers with instantaneous response times and high-quality immersive experiences.
Edgemesh turned to Fastly's Compute@Edge solution to meet their performance needs. Compute@Edge is a serverless compute environment built on top of Fastly's advanced caching platform. It is a general computing layer that sits between single- or multi-origin clouds and companies' end users, allowing developers to run code in a safe, microsecond execution environment, at scale, on the edge. This solution enabled Edgemesh to use domain unsharding, also known as connection coalescing, to limit the number of TCP connections and dramatically accelerate response times and page loads of their customers’ sites. Compute@Edge also helped Edgemesh Server run fully automatic dynamic rendering, serving a pre-rendered, optimized static HTML version of a site to index bots, while human customers still get a highly interactive, immersive version.

Smarter Traffic Enforcement: Cameras, Weather Stations, and Speed Limit Signs
The Transport Administration is responsible for Sweden’s infrastructure. They plan the transportation system, decide on building projects, provide maintenance, procure services and are responsible for traffic information. In the early 1990s, the Administration introduced speed cameras, which monitor traffic on certain roads and photograph violations. The problem was that the cameras had to be emptied manually, which led to time-consuming administration and extra travel. The requirements for the new solution were higher: In addition to being connected to the cloud, the requirements for reliability and accessibility were extremely high.
