Last Tuesday (on April 10, 2012), PeerApp, the leading provider of transparent caching services for improving online content delivery, announced
that Indian telecom provider Sistema Shyam TeleServices Limited, which provides services under the brand name of MTS, will be leveraging its UltraBand transparent caching platform to improve content delivery.
MTS provides mobile broadband services to more than 300 towns in India under the brand-name of MBlaze, and with the rapidly increasing data needs of its users, it needed a good caching solution that would speed-up content delivery and also reduce the load on the network, thereby allowing the existing infrastructure to scale-up. The PeerApp UltraBand deployment provided MTS with not only faster content delivery, but also reduced the network load by 40% by intelligently detecting popular content and delivering it closer to the end-users.
Both PeerApp and MTS were happy with the deal and PeerApp mentioned that MTS’s decision to deploy its UltraBand and the type of benefits it could provide show how good its technology is for improving content delivery, even on mobile networks.
