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.
