UltraBand helps MTN speed content delivery and reduce network costs by automatically detecting and storing popular content, and delivering it locally.

"As consumer demand grows for video and data content, transparent caching offers a way for us to provide the best possible end-user quality and control network costs by allowing more careful and efficient planning of our international capacity needs," said Yiannis Michaelides, Switching Networks and Services Planning, Senior Manager, MTN Cyprus. "The solution has allowed MTN Cyprus to sustain the increased data traffic demand from our 3G network, fixed broadband (ADSL/VDSL) services and high capacity fiber offerings to corporate customers. Moreover, the fact that other MTN operating companies have already evaluated and successfully implemented UltraBand gave us additional confidence in the solution."
