This week in Enterprise Solutions news PeerApp has announced that more than 300 network operators worldwide are deploying its UltraBand transparent caching platform. PeerApp’s UltraBand allows network operators to increase the delivery of internet video services, file sharing applications, web browsing and others. UltraBand can also be implemented on its own or as part of an edge caching layer that’s serves both OTT and CDN.
"The accelerating adoption of our technology is evidence of operators' ever-expanding need to manage over-the-top content, and of the positive impact that UltraBand delivers," said Robert Mayer, CEO and co-founder, PeerApp. "Increasingly, transparent caching is becoming a standard part of operators' strategies to manage network costs, build subscriber loyalty and ultimately to monetize OTT content."
In other Enterprise Solutions news, Phoenix Communications Pte Ltd and TELES (News - Alert) had come out and announced an alliance. The Singapore-based service provider has chosen TELES in an effort to extend its technical wholesale trading infrastructure.
“The TELES wholesale trading solution offers everything we need to run our business profitably”, said Chiang Chee Cheong, Managing Director at Phoenix Communications. “The trading platform adapts to the needs of a growing business, automatically enables all wholesale processes and maximizes our margins significantly. That’s what I call a high-end solution.”
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Cross River Fiber announced it has completed construction on a direct end-to-end dark fiber route between Weehawken and Secaucus New Jersey. The fiber route will be low latency and will interconnect two key data center hubs that service the New York metro area. The route itself covers a distance of 5.94 km and will mainly service the financial services community.
"The completion of this new route in an exclusive partnership with Hudson Fiber Network provides companies greater accessibility to lit, passive and dark fiber services in the much sought-after Northern New Jersey marketplace," says Vincenzo Clemente, President and CEO of Cross River Fiber. "With a distance of only 5.94 km end-to-end, this new, low latency fiber route offers a major improvement, shaving kilometers from the next best commercially available routes."
