Sandvine and PeerApp Deploy in Five Networks

Integrated content caching solution deployed in five residential service provider networks

WATERLOO, CANADA--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) -

Attention Technology Editors

Sandvine, (TSX:SVC)(AIM:SAND) a leading provider of intelligent broadband network solutions for cable, DSL, FTTx, fixed wireless and mobile operators, today announced the successful deployment of content caching solutions in five service provider networks across the globe. The customers were won in previous quarters together with PeerApp as part of a technology partnership that began in 2008.

Content caching is a sophisticated traffic optimization tool that targets popular file transfers such as Internet video (YouTube, Metacafe, etc) by developing a temporary local storage called a cache. When content is requested again by any other subscriber, the cache satisfies the request from its temporary storage, eliminating data transfer through expensive transit links and reducing network congestion.

"Our interoperable content caching solution benefits both service providers and subscribers," said Frank Childs, PeerApp's vice president of marketing. "Subscribers experience faster downloads and video streaming while service providers relieve network congestion and optimize their networks."

The Sandvine-PeerApp integrated content caching solution leverages Sandvine's Policy Traffic Switch (PTS) hardware, detailed protocol identification capabilities and PeerApp's expertise in multi-service, multi-protocol caching solution for video and download services. 

"This pre-integrated solution is another example of the breadth of Sandvine solutions that meet the ever growing needs of service providers and their subscribers," said Tom Donnelly, EVP sales and marketing, Sandvine.

Sandvine has a proven Solutions Partner Ecosystem that offers service providers a suite of pre-integrated joint solutions designed to rapidly deploy new services, improve subscriber retention and enhance subscriber online quality of experience.

With service provider customers in over 70 countries serving hundreds of millions of fixed and mobile subscribers, Sandvine is enhancing the Internet experience worldwide. For more information on Sandvine's platform, products, partners and applications please visit
