Joint video caching solution nominated by NTT-AT wins performance optimization award
Newton, Massachusetts, USA and Hod Hasharon, Israel, June 25, 2012 – PeerApp, the leading provider of transparent caching platforms for Internet content delivery and Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leading provider of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile broadband service providers worldwide, today announced that a joint solution comprising their respective technologies was nominated by NTT Advanced Technology (NTT-AT) and subsequently won a ‘Best of Show’ Award in the Performance Optimization category at Interop Tokyo. Allot and PeerApp were selected from among over 200 vendors who submitted entries for this year’s awards, for improving service quality and reducing network congestion for over-the-top (OTT) content delivery.
The joint solution was designed and submitted by NTT Advanced Technology (NTT-AT), a member of the NTT Group. NTT-AT integrates state-of-the-art technologies to provide leading solutions for network operators. The award-winning solution leverages the Allot Service Gateway’s actionable network intelligence from traffic statistics per application, subscriber, content, and network location, as well as PeerApp’s UltraBand Transparent Caching platform which speeds content delivery and reduces network load by automatically detecting popular content and delivering it from the network edge.
Together, the products comprised NTT-AT’s “traffic steering and streaming cache solution” which dynamically and intelligently directs multimedia network traffic and caches it for superior delivery quality and reduced network congestion. The judges praised the solution for its ability to improve service quality without sacrificing any other service performance.
PeerApp and Allot also demonstrated a successful operation of ShowNet, a live network at Interop in which products from all participating vendors demonstrated interoperability with one another. Both the Allot Service Gateway and PeerApp’s UltraBand successfully demonstrated IPv6 operation and IPv4-to-IPv6 migration. The demonstration proves that these products will perform successfully as operators migrate their networks into the future.
“We have worked hard on our own and with our partners to develop a transparent caching solution that improves content delivery for both operators and subscribers,” said Samuel Bachar, PeerApp’s Vice President of Products and Marketing. “This award recognizes the benefits our product brings to operators, along with our ability to collaborate productively with leading companies in our space.”
“Operators are in search of solutions than can create an opportunity out of the deluge in bandwidth consumption and generate revenue from OTT applications,” said Lior Moyal, Allot’s VP of Business Development. “This award further validates our investment in technology partnerships that generate new value-added services for operators and increase quality of experience for their subscribers. Combined with our recent acquisition of Ortiva, we now offer the most comprehensive solution in the market to meet the increasing challenge from OTT video, which is the single largest application on service providers’ networks.”
