PETACH TIKVA, Israel -- Oversi, a pioneer of over-the-top (OTT) caching and delivery solutions, today announced the first implementation of its NetEnhancer(TM) management tool for peer-to-peer (P2P) traffic. Designed to complement technological advances being developed by the P4P Working Group (P4PWG)*, Oversi's NetEnhancer(TM) optimizes service providers' network resources to accelerate content delivery and provide the best Internet experience for end-users.

NetEnhancer works by automatically routing P2P traffic to local peers in line with the available network resources of the operator. NetEnhancer can shift the P2P load from international and interconnect peers to local peers or from overstretched areas in the access network to areas with higher capacity. Service providers benefit from reduced hop counts and bandwidth savings across the network while their subscribers enjoy faster download times. At the same time, NetEnhancer maintains the integrity of the P2P network with peers still having access to external sources.

David Tolub, Oversi's President and CEO, said, "The FCC's ruling on 'discriminatory network management' practices has highlighted the service provider's dilemma with respect to P2P traffic. NetEnhancer provides a win-win solution, relieving the P2P burden for operators while increasing customer satisfaction. Our goal is to help bring the potential benefits of P4P to the real world, under the full control of the service provider."
