Newton, Massachusetts, January 9, 2012 – PeerApp, the leading provider of transparent caching platforms for Internet content delivery, today announced that more than 200 network operators worldwide have deployed its UltraBand product in their networks. UltraBand allows operators to improve end user quality of experience for multimedia content while reducing network costs associated with carrying “over the top” video and peer-to-peer traffic.
In its recent study ‘Global Transparent Caching Market’, research firm Frost & Sullivan named PeerApp as the world's largest pure-play caching vendor. "PeerApp is rapidly growing in a very exciting market space" said Dan Rayburn, Principal Analyst, Frost & Sullivan. "Operator deployments of transparent caching solutions like PeerApp's will cause the market to grow from $140M in 2011 to $708M by 2015."
Rising consumer demand for streaming video and other bandwidth-intensive services presents a challenge for network operators globally. PeerApp’s UltraBand transparent caching platform helps operators speed content delivery and reduce network load by automatically detecting popular content and delivering from the edge of the network. The number of operators using UltraBand has grown steadily, surpassing 200 by the end of 2011. Because the over-the-top content phenomenon is widespread, PeerApp customers include mobile and fixed-line operators in over 60 countries, with subscriber bases ranging from thousands to millions.
“PeerApp was founded on a vision that the Internet would become the primary delivery vehicle for all forms of popular content,” said Robert Mayer, CEO and co-founder, PeerApp. “We are now seeing that vision become a reality. Over 200 operators using our systems is continuing validation that our transparent caching technology is critical to this transformation.”
