Red Swoosh’s P2P client is a secure, closed P2P application that allows your users to get more content from your site at a higher quality and speed while reducing bandwidth costs for you. Once your site’s links are swooshed, Red Swoosh’s sophisticated networking technology handles the rest.
Users who click on swooshed links will then pull the content from other idle PCs that have already downloaded or streamed the specific file. The content is streamed or downloaded with the same experience as before in the player or the browser. Once downloaded, the content is temporarily cached where small pieces of it will be forwarded to other users who are downloading content.
Users who don’t have the Red Swoosh client installed will be prompted to get the client before their download or stream begins.
