Unprecedented 70 Mbps Throughput Significantly Improves Quality of Experience
NEWTON, MA – August 13, 2013 – PeerApp, the leader in content caching and delivery, announced today that three global tier 1 network operators deployed the company’s award-winning UltraBand platform in the first half of 2013. PeerApp was chosen after extensive field trials in the operators’ LTE and fiber-to-the-home networks, against competing offerings. With UltraBand, these operators are able to accelerate delivery and improve quality of experience (QoE) by storing popular content closer to subscribers, Results from one tier 1 operator show an average of 70 Mbps throughput of video and data content delivery on their fiber-to-the-home network, a 700% performance increase.
“Tier 1 operators need to keep up with the blistering growth in demand for over-the-top (OTT) video and data services. As they build out their access networks, PeerApp enables them take full advantage of LTE and fiber access speeds,” said Robert Mayer, CEO at PeerApp. “By providing full control of content delivery – including acceleration, analytics and monetization – we are transforming OTT from a problem into an opportunity.”
Frost & Sullivan has named PeerApp the market leader with 27% market share in their June 2013 “Analysis of the Global Transparent Caching Market” report. The company added over 40 new customers in the first half of 2013. Its field-proven transparent caching solutions are now deployed with 350 network operators worldwide.
PeerApp’s UltraBand is the only transparent caching solution that supports video, file downloads, software updates and peer-to-peer traffic in a single platform. Its unique patented architecture preserves application logic and ensures full transparency. This means that it can easily scale to handle the most complex Internet services and environments.
To extend the benefits of caching throughout the content delivery value chain, the company also in the first half of 2013 announced the Content Service Extension (CSE) initiative in partnership with CDN leaders EdgeCast and Limelight. CSE is an architectural framework that allows network operators to offer their caching infrastructure as a service to CDNs and OTT service providers, as a virtual extension of the content service footprint to monetize OTT content delivery.
