accelerated file transfer

As technology advances, we’ll find ways to make file types that offer comparatively the same quality in smaller file sizes. However, we’ll also find ways to make file types that offer more but are larger, ensuring that software for accelerated file transfer will also need to keep up since we’ll need to send larger files and bigger data sets in less time.

Signiant has optimized accelerated file transfer and bandwidth management over more than a decade of technological innovation. We focus specifically on the needs of the media and entertainment industry, who traditionally handle larger files than any other industry.
