A new caching-CDN-filtering vendor, SwiftServe, was officially launched - "..Founded as a joint-venture by a team of serial technology entrepreneurs from Singapore and the UK, SwiftServe is focusing initially on transparent caching and content delivery network (CDN) technology, enabling content publishers and network service providers to offer a faster, safer and better multimedia experience to consumers and enterprises. SwiftServe has already established a significant foothold in South-East Asia, with customers such as Singtel, Starhub, True Corporation and Singapore Airlines (see unnamed case studies - here, here), and is working with partners in other regions".
SwiftServe offers solutions for transparent caching, content filtering, licensed CDN, web acceleration, video streaming and file-download optimization.
The above mentioned carriers are already using a number of traffic optimization technologies (not necessarily for the same network): "StarHub [Singapore] Selected Mobixell" - here, "Does True Internet [Thailand] Use Oversi Just to Improve Internet Video QoE?" - here and "True Internet [Thailand] Uses Bluecoat to Reduce Costs and Improve QoE for Web and Video" - here.
SwiftServe is a joint venture joint-venture by the founders of Versio4 and Conversant. Versio4's Co-Founder, Adam Twiss (pictured), was also the founder of CacheLogic, later to become Velocix and acquired by Alcatel-Lucent.
