SHENZHEN, China, April 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xunlei Limited (“Xunlei”) (Nasdaq:XNET), an industry leading cloud-based bandwidth acceleration technology company in China, announced today that its cloud computing subsidiary, Shenzhen Onething Technologies Co., Ltd., has received a National Content Delivery Network (“CDN”) Business Operating License from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China.

Xunlei’s Nebula CDN is a new generation of CDN built upon the company’s proprietary distributed cloud computing technology.

Now under the terms of the new license, Xunlei is qualified to offer its CDN solutions to enterprises in all parts of China. We believe this official recognition will elevate our service capacity from being regional to national in China. And our goal is to become a major player in the global cloud computing industry through our sharing economy model.”
