LIME, a premier telecommunications company in the Caribbean, has selected PeerApp to provide its UltraBand transparent caching platform throughout LIME's Caribbean operations.
LIME, a leading full-service telecom provider in the Caribbean, delivers landline, Internet, mobile and entertainment services to thirteen Caribbean countries.
Thanks to UltraBand, LIME would now be able to deliver Internet content, including video and multimedia, with improved quality while reducing associated network congestion and costs.
Officials with PeerApp said that the company’s UltraBand transparent caching platform speeds content delivery and reduces network load by automatically detecting popular content and storing and delivering it as close as possible to the subscriber.
LIME will deploy UltraBand systems at each of its thirteen operating companies' networks.
"Our subscribers demand the best possible quality for streaming video, audio and content services," said Patrick Bradd, chief technical officer, LIME, in a statement.
Bradd said that PeerApp's UltraBand will help the company keep pace with this growing demand.
“Furthermore, UltraBand's ability to scale from small to very large systems using common software, features and management allows us to distribute the caches to the network edge, for the best possible user experience and savings across the largest part of the network," he said.
Javier Jimenez, senior vice president and general manager, Americas, PeerApp said that as the leading network operator in its region, LIME must deliver all the latest content services with the best possible quality.
"Our UltraBand solution will help them maintain their premium market position while gaining better control of traffic growth in their network," said Jimenez.
PeerApp is an infrastructure provider of transparent Internet caching and content delivery platforms, enabling network operators to control rich media content, improve network efficiency, enhance subscribers' quality of experience, and offer new Internet content services.
TMCnet in April reported that as the leader in Content Delivery Platforms and Transparent Internet Caching, PeerApp has successfully extended its UltraBand 5000 platform to help process 250Gbps of network traffic.
