PhotonIQ Performance Proxy (P3)

PhotonIQ Performance Proxy (P3) is a service that enhances web performance by optimizing the loading times and bandwidth usage for web resources like images, CSS, and JavaScript files. Enterprises can use P3 to improve Web Core Vitals and overall site performance.

Problem and Solution

Enterprises with high-traffic websites often face challenges in maintaining optimal website performance. Slow loading times and poor performance not only adversely affect the user experience but also lower SEO rankings. This can lead to potential revenue loss. To address these challenges, P3 acts as an intermediary layer between a CDN and an origin web server. It employs real-time best practices, advanced compression algorithms, and various optimization techniques to boost web page performance.


  • Improved User Experience: Faster loading times and lower bounce rates contribute to an overall enhanced user experience, increasing customer retention and conversion rates.

  • Better SEO Ranking: Faster website performance helps improve SEO rankings, increasing the likelihood of more organic traffic.

  • Cost Savings: Efficient resource utilization reduces the need for additional server scaling during high-traffic events, yielding cost savings.


P3 operates based on a comprehensive offline analysis of web pages and their associated resources. This allows for the dynamic updating and caching of content to achieve optimal performance.

P3 Architecture

The P3 system is built on three primary components:

  • Offline Analyzer: Scheduled to run at regular intervals, this component scans customer web pages for performance issues. Using algorithms and expert insights from Macrometa Global Data Network (GDN), it generates optimization rules, which are then sent to the P3 proxy.

  • Proxy: Functioning as an intermediary for customer website origins, the proxy focuses on enhancing page content and resource performance. It utilizes the rules set by the offline analyzer to optimize the loading and rendering sequence of resources, apply advanced image and content compression techniques, and manage caching.

  • Deployer: Fully integrated into the Macrometa GDN global infrastructure, the deployer facilitates the deployment of P3 across different regions, making it adaptable to various customer requirements.
