fast file transfer

More businesses are transferring large files over long distances today than ever before. Despite file transfer being a common practice, not all files move at the same speed. Many details impact file transfer including the size of the file, the end-point locations, the path, the devices, firewalls, network systems, and encryption.

Up until recent technology innovations, transferring large files over a high bandwidth network would take a long time with major security risks. Traditional web and file transfer protocols (FTP) frequently slowed down file movement due to latency and loss compensation.

We’re changing that. Signiant is a leader in cutting edge file transfer technology that makes file transfers fast. Using Signiant’s acceleration protocol makes your delivery times up to 200X faster than previous FTP solutions with 95% higher network efficiency. Our UDP acceleration protocol compensates for network latency and loss in IP networks.

Media Shuttle ensures fast file transfer to save your company time, money and stress. How do we make fast file transfer?

  • Unparalleled capabilities for bandwidth management

Why M&E businesses are moving away from online file sharing tools for their valuable media assets

Many of our customers employ both Media Shuttle along with online file sharing tools, using the latter for small in-house files.
