PeerApp, the market leader in solutions that accelerate delivery of Internet content helps operators of campus environments to reduce network load by automatically detecting popular content (videos, music, and software updates), and storing that content locally within the campus network for faster delivery to end users. This optimizes bandwidth in a simple and straightforward way, providing the dual benefit of reducing costs and increasing speed. More speed to the end user improves QoE.
PeerApp’s main offer, the UltraBand Internet content caching solution, optimizes the delivery of Internet content—video, software, and other media/entertainment assets—across any network type (mobile, fixed or cable). “By lowering bandwidth needs, campuses can save cost, delay network upgrades, use that bandwidth for other important applications, or any combination of the three,” says Gadi Tamari, CEO, PeerApp. “We also have an analytics product that provides visibility into Quality of Experience, network performance, subscriber trends and cached content,” claims Tamari.
PeerApp stands ahead of the competition due to its innovative and open approach to caching. PeerApp’s UltraBand can handle many different types of content, has the ability to work with dynamic URLs, is an open

Ease of upgrade and expansion is another PeerApp plus, “We recently had an educational institution that started with a 6Gbps PeerApp system,” explains Tamari, “Within three weeks, the system had proven itself by reducing Internet bandwidth consumption by one-third. Speed of content delivery to end-users increased dramatically—200 times faster at peak than delivery direct from the Internet. That institution is now looking to increase capacity by an order of magnitude, which can easily be achieved with a straightforward system expansion.”
“We believe that in 2015 caching will be acknowledged as an essential part of any network with video traffic,” says Tamari. “This means different things in different networks—campus environments, telco, cable, and mobile (where as much as 30 percent of video is watched today). For all types of networks, caching is moving closer and closer to the end user, and moving towards virtualization. These are areas where PeerApp brings considerable experience, knowledge and skills,” he concludes.
