NEWTON, Mass. -- PeerApp, Ltd., the innovator in peer-to-peer (P2P) acceleration and caching solutions for Internet Service Providers (ISPs), today announced new software that provides higher-quality subscriber experiences with HTTP video streaming traffic from YouTube, Google Video, MySpace and other video-sharing web sites. The new software, a module for PeerApp's carrier-grade UltraBand(TM) solutions, supports the HTTP video streaming protocol and caches traffic from Windows Media(R) Player, Adobe(R) Flash(R) Video, Apple(R) QuickTime(R), RealNetworks(R) RealPlayer(R), and other Internet video applications without requiring ISPs to install proxy servers or to change definitions or configurations.

With the addition of this new software, PeerApp now provides concurrent support for caching and accelerating HTTP video streams and P2P video downloads, enabling ISPs to deliver efficient, robust broadband video to their subscribers.

PeerApp's UltraBand solutions provide greater control over network utilization, the quality of broadband video delivery, and the subscriber experience. As a result, ISPs can create new, differentiated service offerings -- packages based on throughput, upload/download rates, or network capacity -- that can command higher prices and improve operating margins. ISPs should also see immediate and dramatic improvements in network performance, such as reduced congestion, lower latency and less packet loss; and significantly improved efficiencies in network operations, particularly transit links.

"We're advancing the dominant application of the Web -- broadband video -- by enabling video to be delivered at wire speed," said Frank Childs, PeerApp's vice president of business development and marketing. "Our solutions close the gap between subscribers' demands for faster speeds at the desktop, palm-top or set-top, and the constraints created by bottlenecks on back-end networks. Now, subscribers can get the full speeds that they are paying for, video service providers can deliver higher-quality content, and ISPs can participate in revenue streams created by Internet video. Everybody wins."
