UltraBand 6000 delivers multiple 10 Gbps connections to scale for Tier 1 core networks and provides industry’s broadest content coverage
Newton, Massachusetts, September 18, 2012 – PeerApp, the leading provider of transparent caching platforms for Internet content delivery, today introduced the UltraBand 6000, the next generation in its UltraBand multiservice transparent caching product family. UltraBand 6000 sets a new benchmark for caching performance, processing up to 40% more content traffic than the largest systems currently available.
Transparent caching speeds content delivery and reduces network load by automatically detecting popular content and storing and delivering it from the network edge. The new UltraBand 6000 offers unprecedented scalability and performance, extending from appliance models for small operators and remote sites, to grid configurations with multiple 10 Gbps interfaces designed for tier 1 core network infrastructure.
“We have a large, distributed UltraBand deployment that serves constantly growing traffic volumes,” said Patrick Bradd, Chief Technology Officer, LIME, the leading full-service telecom provider in the Caribbean and part of the Cable & Wireless Communications Group. “With UltraBand 6000, PeerApp continues to anticipate our requirements and ensure the best possible content experience for our subscribers.”
UltraBand 6000 also offers a unique cache policy engine that gives operators precise control over caching resources to tailor output for specific services and subscriber groups. Like other UltraBand family products, the 6000 offers the industry’s broadest content coverage, supporting streaming video and audio, peer-to-peer and HTTP file sharing and software update services all within the same platform. Over 270 network operators have deployed UltraBand making it the most widely deployed transparent caching platform.
Yankee Group research vice president Brian Partridge commented, “The growing popularity of OTT content creates strain on middle mile network capacity and Internet peering points for service providers. In addition, content originating from far away servers often suffers from latency that impacts the user experience. These challenges are causing service providers to deploy transparent caching that can scale from the network edge all the way to the core as a key component of content aware network build-outs.”
“Transparent caching is becoming pervasive as a way for operators to manage both their network traffic and their subscribers’ quality of experience. Operators are deploying UltraBand as a part of their network growth and content management strategy,” said Robert Mayer, CEO, PeerApp. “UltraBand 6000 allows operators to have an unprecedented impact on the widest variety of content.”
