We believe that PeerApp will enable us to better utilize our network and deliver outstanding quality of experience to our subscribers.”
The PeerApp content-delivery platform offloads end-to-end streams and delivers the content from the network edge, close to subscribers, reducing network traffic while improving content quality.

The platform has already achieved an impressive network offload of over 80% during peak, live-streaming events. Not only does PeerApp eliminate network spikes, but by localizing live streams, it enables subscribers to receive streaming content with no buffering.
The PeerApp platform is highly scalable and will enable Joister to service its emerging subscriber base in dense cities as well as in sparsely populated, remote locations with superior content delivery even at peak demand times.
