TEL AVIV, Israel, November 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Datanet, Uganda's the largest privately owned Commercial internet service provider (ISP), selected to lease capacity from DiViNetworks, using the unique DiViCloud service.
DiViCloud loads additional traffic on Datanet's existing international link, above its nominal rate. This process is done without any loss of information, or added latency. DiViCloud is a network of smart Points of Presence, located at major Internet junctions, which compacts data as it flows to the ISPs.
Datanet is already optimizing international capacity using PeerApp's web caching solution. DiViCloud's technology operates at a bit-stream layer, and thus further compacts the traffic, making way for additional data.
"DiViCloud deployment was straightforward; within 24 hours Datanet's Internet connectivity was expanded," says Mr. Rupin Masrani, Datanet's Managing Director. "Datanet is growing rapidly, and DiViCloud is a great way to keep us ahead of the curve, and to continue and provide a high-capacity service to our customers. Datanet provides Wireless Broadband, IP telephony, Metro Ethernet, VSAT services, hosting services and other value added services. Visit our website http://www.datanet.ug.
"We are very proud of having Datanet as a DiViCloud customer," says Tsahie Lavi, DiViNetworks' VP Regional Business Unit, MEA. "Wholesale prices in Africa are extremely high, and we are determined to offer an affordable alternative, which will boost broadband proliferation."
