FileCatalyst Leverages Raptor Codes for Accelerated Network Performance

Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) June 8, 2005

Today, Unlimi-Tech unveiled FileCatalyst, a software solution designed to increase file transfer speeds on IP networks and cut costs for the Enterprise.

The Java-based software is powered by technology from Digital Fountain Inc., the leader in advanced Forward Error Correction (FEC) coding technology. Chris Bailey, CTO of Unlimi-Tech, commented, "The Digital Fountain raptor codes not only allow us to solve file transfer issues for our customers, but extends the range of our products into new markets."

FileCatalyst overcomes the issue of slow file transfers on networks with high latency or packet loss, with speeds that are up to 30 times faster than FTP. The Java-based software plug-in, with easy to navigate interface, provides for seamless integration into existing work flows, saving organizations time, money and resources. FileCatalyst is available for Linux, Solaris, OSX and Windows operating systems.

"Unlimi-Tech has done a great job of acting quickly to capitalize on market needs and has architected a great product," said Charlie Oppenheimer CEO of Digital Fountain.
