Giraffic Extends Acceleration Technology to Mobile Devices

AVA Enables Faster and More Robust Mobile-to-Mobile File Transfers Over Wi-Fi

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL(18 Feb 2015)

Giraffic, the inventor of Adaptive Video Acceleration (AVA), announced today its AVA mobile solution that accelerates video streaming on mobile devices and improves the delivery of large, mobile-to-mobile file transfers over Wi-Fi.  This enables quick and easy sharing of personal media, as well as OTT video apps to deliver throughput of over 20 Mbps for HD and UHD videos.

Consumers can find it difficult to send large files, especially videos, from smartphones or view them on TVs because the transfer is often interrupted or extremely slow. Giraffic’s AVA solution for mobile devices seamlessly accelerates online videos or files coming from other devices in the home. Unlike conventional video streams, AVA outsmarts Internet limitations by requesting multiple feeds of small fragments of files, and then stitching them together for reliable, seamless playback. AVA mitigates interruptions that can happen over basic Wi-Fi networks at home or in public spaces.

“Despite file transfer and sharing protocols such as Wi-Fi Direct and AirPlay, the constant noise and disconnects within a home network make it very challenging to send large files quickly and smoothly from a mobile device,” said Yoel Zanger, Giraffic’s CEO and Founder. “Giraffic’s AVA mobile solution solves this problem by making them simply work, allowing for videos and other large files to be transferred or even easily beamed on the TV screen.”

Tests of the most challenging Wi-Fi networking environments have shown that AVA enables over 50% faster delivery of files shared over the home network – between mobile devices as well as from mobile devices to the big screen smart TV. AVA- powered sharing also resulted in uninterrupted large file transfers, enabling a more reliable and simpler way to share videos directly, from one mobile device to another. 

Giraffic plans to offer this technology fully integrated into devices’ existing file transfer and sharing protocols in order to enhance Wi-Fi Direct, Miracast or Screen Mirroring. For more information, please visit http://www.Giraffic.com
