P2P Components

News, Okategoriserade

The P2P Components are tools to build and analyze p2p networks:

MyP2PWorld: A complete P2P network simulator. More information is available here.
Link Assess: Measures the instantaneous quality of any link between two nodes.
Net Topology: A P2P component to help construct a locality aware overlay network.

Network traffic optimization


PeerNet helps broadband operators to minimize network traffic by making better use of the existing infrastructure. Large and popular content files are temporarily stored and distributed from local P2P-caches in the access networks, reducing peak traffic loads on weak links further up in the network.

Product features:

Content type agnostic.
Dynamic traffic detection; Caching content with largest network traffic impact.
Fault tolerant: P2P caching nodes can fail without damaging QoS.
Cost efficient: Caching on inexpensive consumer grade hardware.
