LAS VEGAS and NXTcomm, June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALLT) and PeerApp Ltd. today announced a joint solution that enables Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to manage network bandwidth costs, increase subscriber loyalty, and create new revenue-generating services. The new solution integrates Allot Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) devices with PeerApp's intelligent media caching solutions to optimize the delivery of video content over the Internet. It will be on display at Allot's booth (SL5016) at NXTcomm 2008.
"The partnership with PeerApp furthers our vision of leveraging DPI as a platform to generate revenues and optimize our customers' networks," said Azi Ronen, Allot's EVP of Corporate Development. "This solution will help service providers handle over-the-top video, the fastest growing segment of network traffic traversing the Internet today intelligently, cost effectively and immediately."
The joint solution dramatically improves the subscriber experience with Internet video content by reducing the irritating delays caused by multimedia content buffering. When deploying the PeerApp UltraBand Intelligent media caching solution with the Allot NetEnforcer or Service Gateway, Allot's DPI engine identifies Internet Video streams in real time and redirects them to the UltraBand platform. Ultraband uses caching technology to free up bandwidth, thereby speeding up the download process and improving the subscriber experience. Allot's Service Gateway or NetEnforcer can also be used to prioritize the video application traffic to all or premium-plan subscribers, which enables ISPs to create new, revenue-generating services from Internet video instead of just being passive purveyors of over-the-top content.
"ISPs are struggling with the flood of over-the-top video coming across their networks, and with subscribers' high expectations for a great experience when viewing video clips, real-time video, and user-generated content," said Frank Childs, Vice President of Business Development for PeerApp. "Allot's superior application identification capabilities, coupled with our intelligent media caching technology, give ISPs what they need not only to overcome today's service challenges, but also to participate economically in the Internet video revolution by managing video traffic locally and intelligently."
