SITA Deploys Peribit to Lower WAN Bandwidth Requirements

SITA, the world's leading provider of integrated communications to the air transport industry, announced a partnership with Peribit Networks to improve the performance of critical applications over the WAN and reduce overall network costs. The partnership adds to SITA's existing suite of global communications services -- currently used by 1,800 customers worldwide -- to address the specific need of improving applications performance across global distributed networks.

Peribit Networks' PeriSphere platform improves application performance by addressing issues around network latency, congestion, contention (QOS) and path optimization. Peribit's technology will be added to SITA's new Traffic Management and Optimization Service to deliver a cost effective solution for air transport businesses grappling with performance across distributed Wide Area Networks.

EURCONTROL, the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation, is the first customer to work with Peribit Networks and SITA to deploy the joint solution.
