PeerApp Deploys world’s largest Transparent Internet Caching Solution at Major Tier 1 Operator in East Asia with 250Gbps Processing Capacity
Newton, Massachusetts; March 14, 2011 – PeerApp, the leader in Content Delivery Platforms and Transparent Internet Caching, announced today the successful deployment and expansion of its UltraBand 5000 platform to process 250Gbps of network traffic. A major tier 1 operator in East Asia with millions of subscribers is experiencing tremendous benefits from its UltraBand deployment with increased subscriber Quality of Experience (QoE) and dramatic networks savings – with over 200Gbps of the operator’s network traffic being generated and served from the UltraBand transparent Internet cache. The operator chose PeerApp after extensive trials and testing because the UltraBand is the most scalable, datacenter efficient and truly transparent solution in the industry that automatically adapts to the most popular content and services.
PeerApp’s UltraBand is the world’s only transparent Internet cache and content delivery solution that supports video, HTTP file downloads, software updates and peer-to-peer in a single, modular and scalable architecture. The UltraBand grid computing architecture and scalable, shared storage provides a highly reliable and fault tolerant platform that allows operators to leverage a single solution for all traffic types and efficiently scale as the network grows without expensive load balancing equipment, continual software updates or subscriber affecting downtime. The patented UltraBand software allows an operator to “set and forget” the solution: after installation, the operator never modifies their network or interrupts their business processes to manage the solution. The wide range of protocol and service support in a single software solution means the system adapts to changes in user trends and content automatically with no network equipment or configuration changes.
“Tier 1 operators continue to demand the most from their solution providers and this operator chose PeerApp because the scalability of the solution and the truly transparent architecture is superior to any other in the industry,” said Jim Ryan, PeerApp’s VP of International Sales. “Over 150 operators in over 50 countries have deployed the solution, validating the UltraBand as the number one transparent Internet caching solution in the world.”
PeerApp’s intelligent media cache enables network operators to increase their customers’ QoE and optimize network performance by delivering content inside the operator’s network, eliminating latency and congestion associated with Internet transit and content web servers. The improved user performance allows an operator to live up to marketing commitments for customer connection speed and differentiated classes of service. Additionally, the solution reduces bandwidth OPEX and allows the deferral of capacity purchases by handling requests without file transfers from the Internet. The solution is truly transparent to the Internet and strictly follows the guidelines of the DMCA and International standards for transparent Internet caching – providing operators protection from copyright infringement liabilities.
