NEW YORK and NEWTON, Mass. -- Pando Networks, Inc. and PeerApp Ltd. today announced a partnership that enables Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to accelerate delivery of video and other digital media published by Pando's peer-assisted content delivery platform, improving consumers' experience while reducing network congestion. The partnership provides the first solution that lets content providers, content aggregators and service providers (ISPs, telcos and multiple system operators) collaborate in peer-to-peer (P2P) content delivery and share the benefits.

The partnership integrates Pando's industry-leading managed peer-to-peer (P2P) distribution services with PeerApp's peer-to-peer (P2P) acceleration and caching solutions for ISPs.

Content providers and aggregators have been adopting P2P for delivery of premium video content. Service providers play a critical role in video content delivery because they control the "last mile" to their subscribers. The cooperative approach provided by the Pando-PeerApp partnership satisfies subscribers' demand for high-quality video content, content providers' interest in broad distribution, and ISPs' desire to play a more active role in content distribution.

Pando's managed P2P network delivers more data daily than any other P2P network of its kind. The PeerApp technology is being optimized for Pando-delivered content, enabling wire-speed delivery without requiring ISPs to invest in additional bandwidth or to restrict P2P content.

"With this joint solution, content providers and aggregators can now ensure effective, fast, high-quality delivery of their content across the entire distribution chain," said Robert Levitan, CEO of Pando Networks. "As more high-definition video and multimedia content migrate online, we want to provide our content customers with innovative ways to provide faster, more reliable downloads for consumers while decreasing costs for distributors. We also want to build relationships with the ISPs, telcos and MSOs. PeerApp's technology ensures the success of commercial content delivery networks by providing quality of service, acceleration, and caching benefits to service providers, content providers and consumers."
