Accelerated game delivery service increases download completion rates
NEW YORK, May 27th, 2010 — Pando Networks, a leading provider of accelerated game delivery services, today announced that it has successfully delivered more than 30 million game downloads in the past 12 months. Leading online game companies such as Turbine, Nexon, OnNet, GamersFirst, Ndoors, Gamepot, Gala-Net, LevelUp! and gamigo use Pando services to increase completion rates of their free-to-play games.
The Pando Networks solution includes web services and software that seamlessly interoperate with any CDN service to accelerate download speeds while significantly reducing delivery costs. By combining http delivery with client side technology, Pando provides a highly scalable game delivery platform with network capacity that expands as demand increases. This is especially important for online game distribution as new releases of popular games frequently result in a sudden surge in download demand that can degrade CDN performance and the end user experience.
Pando also provides its partners with detailed performance data that goes far beyond traditional reporting metrics. Pando partners can track the delivery speed and completion rate of each game client each day across different geographies and ISP networks.
“The performance data from downloading more than 30 million games during the past 12 months speaks for itself—Pando technology is perfectly suited for accelerating game delivery” said Robert Levitan, CEO of Pando Networks. “We are very pleased to help our partners improve both their top line (with more completed downloads) and their bottom line (with lower delivery costs).”
Pando Networks optimizes downloads of some of the most popular online games including The Lord of the Rings Online™, Dungeons and Dragons Online™, MapleStory, Grand Chase, Ragnarok, PerfectWorld, Fiesta Online, Luna Online, Rappelz, Allods Online , Flyff and Atlantica Online.
