Pando Networks support for Intel® Remote Wake technology enables content providers to remotely ‘wake’ the home PC from energy efficient sleep mode to deliver digital media
New York, NY, August 14, 2008 – Pando Networks, the leading provider of commercial P2P content delivery services, today announced the world’s first content delivery service to make use of Intel’s Remote Wake technology. This enhancement makes the personal computer an always available and energy efficient extension to content distribution networks. The combination of Pando Networks secure content delivery services and Intel Remote Wake will offer content providers and consumers more choice in how they can access, purchase, and download digital media content to the home PC, even when consumers are not at home. Beyond added convenience, Intel Remote Wake technology will benefit consumers by reducing the energy consumption associated with keeping the home PC always on. Select Intel Motherboards with support for Intel Remote Wake technology will be available next month.
In addition to supporting secure content delivery services, the Pando collaboration with Intel’s Remote Wake capability is an important technology to enable an elegant and efficient remote media access experience from any Internet enabled device. Once the PC “wakes up’, Pando Networks highly secure P2P content delivery service delivers media rapidly and cost effectively.
