Aspera Previews Mobile Data Transport For Android
Aspera Inc. today introduced its fasp-AIR mobile transport technology that enables faster data transfer speeds for wireless networks. NAB attendees are getting the first look at Aspera’s new Android transfer app, which is expected to ship later this year, and comes on the heels of the Aspera Mobile Uploader for the iPhone and iPad released in 2010.
The fasp-AIR mobile platform fasp-AIR allows Aspera customers to achieve high-speed file transfers over wireless networks straight from their handheld devices. Particularly useful to media professionals, the mobile transport platform enables remote news professionals and contributors with high-speed, predictable file transfer to and from mobile devices.
“Aspera’s mobile platform is pivotal to the evolving digital media ecosystem that demands real-time collaboration, big data sharing and remote content distribution on a global scale,” said Michelle Munson, president, CEO and co-founder of Aspera. “Since launching fasp-AIR, we’ve seen growing adoption of the platform from top broadcasters and newspapers that need to quickly capture and transmit content with predictability over wireless or satellite networks. We’re thrilled to be previewing our new Android app at NAB.”
Aspera said its Mobile Uploader for the iPhone and iPad “empowers remote news professionals and contributors with high-speed, predictable file transfer to and from mobile devices. Over typical 3G and 4G networks, fasp-AIR performance is on average up to three times faster than regular TCP and fully utilizes the available channel capacity, independent of the high packet loss associated with wireless links.”
Mobile transfers are fully interoperable with the Aspera Connect Server and Aspera On-demand, and are manageable through the Aspera Console.
