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. In order to move giant media files multiple times a day, our software handles the principles of latency and loss compensation reliably. We optimize performance by detecting available network capacity and congestion, and our network usage won’t affect other network activity.

With accelerated file transfer, Signiant can help you:

  • Transfer to and from geographically-diverse locations
  • Resolve problems associated to packet loss
  • Maximize line speed
  • Save time and money

If you switch to accelerated file transfer, all associated business can speed up. You can get content into all of the right hands quicker and focus on production and revenue. With Signiant, you never have to sacrifice quality in order to move more quantity. We can handle extreme file sizes with top notch security.
