PeerApp, the leading provider of transparent caching platforms for Internet
content delivery and Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT) a leading
provider of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed
and mobile broadband service providers worldwide, today announced that a joint
solution comprising their respective technologies was nominated by NTT
Advanced Technology (NTT-AT) and subsequently won a 'Best of Show' Award in
the Performance Optimization category at Interop Tokyo. Allot and PeerApp were
selected from among over 200 vendors who submitted entries for this year's
awards, for improving service quality and reducing network congestion for
over-the-top (OTT) content delivery
The joint solution was designed and submitted by NTT Advanced Technology
(NTT-AT), a member of the NTT Group. NTT-AT integrates state-of-the-art
technologies to provide leading solutions for network operators. The
award-winning solution leverages the Allot Service Gateway's actionable
network intelligence from traffic statistics per application, subscriber,
content, and network location, as well as PeerApp's UltraBand Transparent
Caching platform which speeds content delivery and reduces network load by
automatically detecting popular content and delivering it from the network
Together, the products comprised NTT-AT's "traffic steering and streaming
cache solution" which dynamically and intelligently directs multimedia network
traffic and caches it for superior delivery quality and reduced network
congestion. The judges praised the solution for its ability to improve
service quality without sacrificing any other service performance.
PeerApp and Allot also demonstrated a successful operation of ShowNet, a live
network at Interop in which products from all participating vendors
demonstrated interoperability with one another. Both the Allot Service
Gateway and PeerApp's UltraBand successfully demonstrated IPv6 operation and
IPv4-to-IPv6 migration. The demonstration proves that these products will
perform successfully as operators migrate their networks into the future.
"We have worked hard on our own and with our partners to develop a transparent
caching solution that improves content delivery for both operators and
subscribers," said Samuel Bachar, PeerApp's Vice President of Products and
Marketing. "This award recognizes the benefits our product brings to
operators, along with our ability to collaborate productively with leading
companies in our space."
"Operators are in search of solutions than can create an opportunity out of
the deluge in bandwidth consumption and generate revenue from OTT
applications," said Lior Moyal, Allot's VP of Business Development. "This
award further validates our investment in technology partnerships that
generate new value-added services for operators and increase quality of
experience for their subscribers. Combined with our recent acquisition of
Ortiva, we now offer the most comprehensive solution in the market to meet the
increasing challenge from OTT video, which is the single largest application
on service providers' networks."
