BitTorrent to Embed its P2P into Consumer Electronics

BitTorrent is collaborating with a number of global hardware manufacturers to embed its peer-assisted digital content delivery technology into consumer electronics. ASUS, Planex and QNAP are among the first CE manufacturers to implement the BitTorrent download manager into their digital home devices. Products include wireless routers, media servers and network attached storage (NAS) devices.



BitTorrent said the growing amount of legitimate content being made available via its P2P technology, hardware that supports the BitTorrent protocol will make it simple for users to consume content even while away from their PC. For instance, a BitTorrent-based router will enable users to connect to the Internet, schedule and download files all without the need for a traditional PC to be used.
