PeerApp Expands Middle East Presence With Qualitynet Partnership(October 22, 2011)
NEWTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/23/11 -- PeerApp, the leading provider of transparent Internet caching and content delivery platforms, announced today the inclusion of Kuwaiti-based Qualitynet as its preferred fulfillment partner within the Gulf States and Middle East Region. Qualitynet will provide pre-sales consultation, system design, sale and installation and ongoing support for PeerApp's UltraBand product line. The partnership establishes the industry's first local 7 x 24 hour telephone and on-site support center by fully-trained, local-language engineers in the Middle East.
"Qualitynet is a well-respected regional company bringing a high level of expertise and local presence to this relationship. This enables our customers to take advantage of world leading technology with high quality local support -- an excellent combination for all concerned," stated Jim Ryan, PeerApp's senior vice president of international sales. "Their local commercial relationships will allow us to keep pace with our rapid expansion in the region."
PeerApp's UltraBand is the world's only transparent Internet cache (TIC) and content delivery solution that supports video, HTTP file downloads, software updates and peer-to-peer traffic in a single platform. The UltraBand grid computing architecture and scalable, shared storage efficiently scales as the network grows without expensive load balancing equipment, continual software updates or system downtime. After installation, the operator need not modify their network or interrupt their business processes to manage the solution. Integration with McAfee® Smart Filter allows network operators to have intelligent control over Web traffic flow in their network, for purposes of filtering of objectionable content and local regulatory compliance.
"We are very excited to add the high quality PeerApp solutions to our portfolio of products," added Waleed AlQallaf, CEO of Qualitynet. "The UltraBand suite of products is a perfect match for the requirements of operators in our region. The scalability allows us to deliver the industry's highest capacity transparent Internet caching solution to the largest operators in the region while also scaling down to service the most remote operators. PeerApp has shown its leadership throughout the world in support of HTTP, peer-to-peer and video streaming applications on a single platform. This is of critical business importance to operators within our region."
