College and University networks accelerated for faster content delivery and
better user experience
NEWTON, MA – April 16, 2015 – PeerApp, the market leader in helping networks accelerate delivery of Internet video and other over-the-top (OTT) content, will showcase its solutions for the education market at the 44th Annual ACUTA Conference & Exhibition on April 19 – 25 in Atlanta. ACUTA, The Association for College & University Technology Advancement, has a mission to advance the capabilities of higher education communications and collaboration technology leaders. New education market case studies will be a highlight of PeerApp’s presence at the event.
College and university campuses are some of the most dynamic and fastest growing networks today. Although PeerApp is most well-known for providing its ‘local content delivery’ solutions to cable, telco and mobile operators, the company also works directly with educational institutions that are grappling with the same issues brought on by the flood of OTT video. PeerApp was recently chosen as one of the 20 Most Promising Campus Tech Solution Providers by CIO Review for its over-the-top (OTT) Internet content acceleration solution for the education market.
Campus networks are struggling to meet increased traffic burdens on their servers. Students, faculty and staff are using the Internet for more than binge viewing. In-class instruction, homework and group projects are as important as gaming and streaming movies. An overloaded campus network interrupts the user’s Quality of Experience (QoE) with delays and video stalling and buffering – leaving users frustrated.
Gadi Tamari, PeerApp CEO, explains, “By lowering Internet bandwidth needs with Peer App’s local content delivery – based on our market-leading open content caching – campuses can save costs, delay network upgrades, and improve the end-user experience. The education market continues to be important to us and we’re proud that we have added many new education-market customers since the start of 2015 – both here in the U.S. and globally.”
