Cambridge-based Akamai Technologies Inc. has laid off about 400 people, roughly 5 percent of its global workforce, in the past few months as experiments meant to reignite growth in one of its core divisions have failed.

It's the core technology that turned Akamai (AKAM) into one of the top tech companies in Massachusetts, but some of the division's largest customers — including Apple, Facebook, Netflix and Microsoft — have begun to build their own in-house content delivery networks over the past few years, reducing their reliance on Akamai.

Akamai's media business, which helps in faster delivery of content through the web, has been under pressure from large customers, such as Apple Inc (AAPL.O) and Amazon.com (AMZN.O), developing in-house capabilities to handle their web traffic.
