UDP Acceleration

UDP Acceleration for Large File Transfers

The kind of technology Signiant has developed to speed file transfers is often called “UDP acceleration.” But UDP acceleration is really just industry vernacular based on one small detail of the implementation, and doesn’t convey the depth of innovation involved.

What we’ve actually done is implement both an advanced TCP (transmission control protocol) on top of UDP as a replacement for TCP, and advanced FTP (file transfer protocol) as a replacement for FTP… Read more.

Or, try it out for yourself with Media Shuttle.

Below is a selection of blogs addressing accelerated large file transfers.

All Accelerated File Transfer Solutions Are Not Created Equal – Don’t Just Take Our Word For It »

We spend a lot of time at Signiant explaining why our person-initiated accelerated file transfer solution - Media Shuttle - is so much better than using TCP-based solutions, such as FTP or online file sending and sharing platforms. But what about all those people who already understand that an accelerated file transfer solution is what they really need or those who have already invested in such a solution, from a vendor other than Signiant, but are finding that it’s not meeting their needs?
