Apposite and Unlimi-Tech Announce Partnership
Ottawa, Canada and Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 15, 2006
Apposite™ Technologies and Unlimi-Tech Software Inc. today announced a strategic partnership to make Apposite’s Linktropy 4500 WAN emulator available to distributors of Unlimi-Tech’s FileCatalyst® file transfer product family. Under the terms of the agreement, Unlimi-Tech will become an authorized worldwide reseller of the Linktropy 4500.
Unlimi-Tech’s FileCatalyst software accelerates file transfers across global networks, overcoming the performance limitations of FTP and other TCP-based transfer mechanisms over long latency or loss prone WAN links. FileCatalyst enables data transfers at line speed, improving bandwidth utilization and file transfer reliability. FileCatalyst uses Digital Fountain’s patented DFRaptor™ forward error correction technology for reliable communications, making it an ideal solution for satellite or wireless communications.
Apposite Technologies’ Linktropy 4500 is a high-precision, easy-to-use, wide area network (WAN) emulator that simulates WAN bandwidth, delay, loss, and other link conditions. The Linktropy 4500 can emulate terrestrial, wireless, satellite or any other type of wide-area network.
Unlimi-Tech uses the Linktropy 4500 to simulate WAN links for development and testing of FileCatalyst at its research lab in Ottawa, Canada, and to demonstrate the performance of FileCatalyst at trade shows and customers sites. By providing the Linktropy 4500 to its distribution partners, Unlimi-Tech ensures that distributors of FileCatalyst can quickly emulate the full range of customer network conditions and configure FileCatalyst for optimal file transfers rates.
“FileCatalyst is designed to improve the performance of file transfers over public WAN or VPN links with varying delay and loss characteristics, making it critical to be able to benchmark and demonstrate the software under those conditions,” said Chris Bailey, CEO of Unlimi-Tech Software. “We’ve been impressed with how easy the Linktropy 4500 makes testing a wide variety of link conditions and decided to make it available directly to our partners.”
“The partnership with Unlimi-Tech represents a significant new opportunity for us,” said DC Palter, Apposite President. “With perfectly complementary products, the relationship will help both parties demonstrate the value of each company’s respective solutions and reach new markets.”
