XOS Technologies Turns to FastSoft to Accelerate Internet Transmissions

FastSoft
Inc. (www.fastsoft.com), a Southern California-based company that develops
products that accelerate the transfer of data over the Internet, announced that
XOS Technologies, Inc. (www.xostech.com), the technology provider for
collegiate and professional sports teams, has selected its Aria Internet
acceleration device. The Aria will be a component of XOS Coaching solutions,
which make the acquisition, management and distribution of digital video to
coaches of sports teams more efficient.

Companies
that depend on the transfer of large files lose valuable time and productivity
waiting for data to download. FastSoft’s Aria product line decreases the file
transfer wait time for clients, employees, partners and suppliers with a
single-box tool that does not require any hardware or software on the receiving
end. XOS customers include 26 National Hockey League (NHL) teams and 28
National Basketball Association (NBA) teams.

Ray
Thompson, Vice President Product Marketing at XOS Technologies, says, “Today’s
coaches depend on a huge amount of data, including downloaded video, to be
effective. Coaches are on the road often and work in places such as hotel rooms
and arenas where Web connections are slow. FastSoft’s Aria box is giving us the
ability to reach coaches – wherever they may be – with connection speeds that
support the kind of critical workflows our customers demand. We have been
impressed with the download speeds we have seen with FastSoft’s Aria box that
we are looking at adding it to our recruiting and scouting product line for pro
sports.”

FastSoft
uses award-winning, patent-pending Internet acceleration technology to help
companies in manufacturing, telecommunications, and media/entertainment
increase revenues and productivity, and decrease costs. In today’s
broadband-powered world, the transfer of large files is seriously hindered by
TCP, the protocol that governs more than 90% of Internet traffic. Companies
that depend on the transfer of large files, including video, audio, graphics
and design, lose valuable time and productivity waiting for data to download.
FastSoft’s flagship Aria product line is creating tangible financial benefits
by empowering organizations to realize the full capacity of their Internet
connections by bypassing the TCP protocol with a “single-box” tool that does
not require any hardware or software on the receiving end.

Steven
Low, CEO of FastSoft, says, “FastSoft’s key innovation is true Internet
Acceleration: we make the Internet faster by overcoming the limitations of the
TCP protocol. This is ideal for companies that need to send large files through
the Internet to recipients who may not be inside a corporate network. The Aria
one-box solution is the ultimate solution for distributed workforces.”
