Embedded UltraBand transparent caching alleviates network bottlenecks, optimizes content delivery
Network operators are facing serious network congestion with the average household now using more than five devices to download network content. Popular multimedia downloads coupled with automatic software updates threaten to cause widespread network quality deterioration. PeerApp has developed the UltraBand Series, an embedded software solution to alleviate congestion by combining traffic inspection and caching of popular multimedia videos and applications that can be deployed in multiple edge locations of the network. As traffic flow content trends upward, UltraBand recognizes this and caches the content so subsequent requests can be served by UltraBand instead of back at the originating server. This results in a 4-10x delivery speed increase on average, while actually reducing upstream network load.
