CacheLogic Announces VelociX Accelerated Media Delivery Platform
VelociX(TM) Integrates Peer-to-Peer Technology with New Content Delivery Network to Enable Vastly Accelerated Movie, Rich Media and Software Delivery
CAMBRIDGE, England, Aug. 7 // -- CacheLogic --- the telecommunication industry's acknowledged leader in P2P caching solutions -- today announced the immediate availability of its new VelociX(TM) Accelerated Media Delivery Platform(TM).
The VelociX platform is the first to combine the unique benefits of scalable Peer-to-Peer technology with a distributed physical network of P2P caches to provide the quality-of-service benefits offered by traditional content distribution networks (CDNs). On VelociX-equipped broadband networks, large media assets such as television programs or movies can be downloaded in minutes rather than hours.
For content owners, the Peer-Assisted technology underpinning the VelociX service provides a seamless, end-to-end solution for the publication and high- speed delivery of digital media to mass audiences. This is accomplished at a significantly lower cost compared to legacy delivery solutions, which enables content owners to effectively monetize a much wider range of media. Using VelociX, it is finally possible to cost-effectively offer a wide range of digital downloads of movies, television programs and other rich content to customers over the Internet.
For Internet Service Providers, the combination of a physically distributed P2P caching network with accelerated content delivery allows the VelociX platform to massively reduce the upstream congestion that has been previously associated with P2P. Additionally, the content acceleration capabilities of the VelociX platform enables Service Providers to fully utilize their high-speed connections to provide truly compelling services for their subscribers.
The VelociX Accelerated Media Delivery Platform comprises a global distributed network with significant delivery capacity located at strategic points across the Internet. The platform, and its interaction with P2P clients operating on the network, is dynamically controlled using CacheLogic's Cache Discovery Protocol (CDP) that enables accelerated media delivery and optimizes distribution of legal content. CDP has already been integrated into the newest clients of BitTorrent(TM) (San Francisco) and RawFlow(TM) (London) with other software vendors also utilizing CDP to fully integrate their products with the VelociX Accelerated Media Delivery Platform. A number of these top-tier vendors will announce CDP support in their offerings later in 2006.
"We believe our VelociX platform is a truly disruptive innovation that enables new and exciting media delivery applications, while allowing media owners to capitalize on the ability to offer their content to wide and diverse audiences," said Pat Chapman-Pincher, CEO of CacheLogic. "Hollywood and Silicon Valley have found a common ground through VelociX which enables the best of all worlds, high-speed legal content delivery and the ability to easily monetize archived content whilst simultaneously offering significant cost-savings and an infinitely-scalable network."
CacheLogic provides a suite of complementary products that deliver traffic management and network intelligence solutions to the Internet Service Provider and telecommunications sectors.
CacheLogic's core products provide carrier-grade solutions that enable ISPs to achieve significant cost savings through the intelligent management of Peer-to-Peer traffic across their networks, without affecting the end-user experience.
In January 2004, CacheLogic set up its analysis network to provide traffic analysis from within the ISP networks across the Globe. The network ensures CacheLogic maintains leadership in understanding the changing nature of traffic across the Internet and, in particular, its impact upon Service Provider networks.
Today through its proven track record, market-leading P2P management solution and its commitment to research and development, CacheLogic is considered the leading authority in its field. CacheLogic is currently working with a number of Digital Rights Holders and Broadcasters on their strategies for the distribution of legitimate video content using P2P technologies.
