Oversi announces Slingshot as its first video cache win in Australasia
Posted on 24-Feb-2010 09:59. | Tags Filed under: News.



Slingshot has deployed Oversi's video cache platform to optimize the Internet experience for its subscribers. The OverCache MSP (multi-service platform) enables Slingshot to accelerate over-the-top (OTT) content, including peer-to-peer (P2P), video streaming and other media applications, while generating significant bandwidth savings for the operator.

OverCache MSP offers a "one-stop-shop" caching and video acceleration solution for online media content delivery. The out-of-band platform is highly scalable and integrates easily with an operator's existing network topology, with no risk to network reliability.

Slingshot, part of the CallPlus group, is the first ISP in the Australasian region to deploy Oversi cache technology. Oversi says this is one of the reasons Slingshot has been ranked as the top broadband provider by independent body Epitiro and won the TUANZ Telecommunications Carrier of the Year for 2009. The cache solution was deployed in October 2009.

General Manager of Slingshot, Mark Callander says "Oversi is a world leader in providing caching solutions and this partnership enables us to continue providing our customers with the best Internet experience in NZ. With Oversi's experience working with major network operators all over the world and the guaranteed improvement in speed for our customers, the decision to partner with Oversi meant we would continue to lead the market."

Callander continued, "The deployment of the cache was a natural step given increasing customer demand for streaming international content. This demand combined with the high cost of international bandwidth capacity meant that the caching was a great solution. Not only have large downloads been accelerated, but peer-to-peer and streaming as well - including HD content. This enables customers to make the most of free downloading periods offered by Slingshot, and ensures that they can have a positive experience during peak times. During the implementation phase we have worked closely with selected customers and closely monitored feedback, and they just love the increased speeds."

David Tolub, Oversi's President and CEO, said, "We are proud to work with visionary companies, such as Slingshot, and are committed to help them maintain their leadership edge."
