Signiant, the intelligent file transfer specialist for video content, is introducing a patent-pending intelligent transport architecture.

signiant 22March2019The architecture replaces standard TCP with a proprietary UDP-based acceleration protocol, or will automatically deploy multiple TCP connections in parallel, depending on network conditions. The technology determines the fastest way to get data through the network utilising a patent-pending mechanism that leverages machine learning to make decisions on the fly. The transport is capable of multiple Gbps transfer speeds for both site-to-site transfers as well as transfers to and from the cloud, the country said.

The new architecture is already deployed in two of Signiant’s cloud-native SaaS products: Flight , which accelerates file transfers to and from the cloud; and Jet, for simple, fast, automated system-to-system file transfers.

“As networks evolve and increase in bandwidth, many incorrectly assume that acceleration technology is no longer required,” said Signiant CTO, Ian Hamilton. “Network bandwidth and network throughput are not the same and Signiant is able to provide even more value on higher bandwidth connections. Our new intelligent architecture supports all types of transfers including site-to-site, site-to-cloud and cloud-to-cloud transfers of both files and streams with no constraints on file size or type.”

Hamilton added: “Acceleration remains foundational to Signiant even as we move beyond fast file transfer, adding new intelligence and enterprise-grade capabilities to our software products. Networks continue to evolve and we are committed to ongoing innovation to make sure our technology remains ahead of the market under all conditions.”
