CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKAM) today announced it has completed its acquisition of Netli, Inc., a privately held company based in Mountain View, California. Akamai announced a definitive agreement on February 5, 2007 to acquire Netli in a merger transaction.

Akamai acquired Netli in an effort to enhance its application acceleration solutions, which are designed to improve the performance of Web- and other Internet-based applications.
