Allot and PeerApp Win Interop Tokyo 2012 ‘Best of Show’ Award

June 25, 2012

NEWTON, Massachusetts and HOD HASHARON, Israel, June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

PeerApp [http://www.peerapp.com ], the leading provider of transparent caching
platforms for Internet content delivery and Allot Communications Ltd.
[http://www.allot.com ] (NASDAQ: ALLT [http://www.irconnect.com/allt/pages/stock-quote.html
]) a leading provider of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed
and mobile broadband service providers worldwide, today announced that a joint solution
comprising their respective technologies was nominated by NTT Advanced Technology (NTT-AT)
and subsequently won a ‘Best of Show’ Award in the Performance Optimization category at
Interop Tokyo. Allot and PeerApp were selected from among over 200 vendors who submitted
entries for this year’s awards, for improving service quality and reducing network
congestion for over-the-top (OTT) content delivery

The joint solution was designed and submitted by NTT Advanced Technology (NTT-AT), a
member of the NTT Group. NTT-AT integrates state-of-the-art technologies to provide
leading solutions for network operators. The award-winning solution leverages the Allot
Service Gateway [http://www.allot.com/Service_Gateway_Sigma.html ]‘s actionable network
intelligence from traffic statistics per application, subscriber, content, and network
location, as well as PeerApp’s UltraBand Transparent Caching platform
[http://www.peerapp.com/Products/transparentcaching.aspx ] which speeds content delivery
and reduces network load by automatically detecting popular content and delivering it from
the network edge.

Together, the products comprised NTT-AT’s “traffic steering and streaming cache
solution” which dynamically and intelligently directs multimedia network traffic and
caches it for superior delivery quality and reduced network congestion. The judges praised
the solution for its ability to improve service quality without sacrificing any other
service performance.

PeerApp and Allot also demonstrated a successful operation of ShowNet, a live network
at Interop in which products from all participating vendors demonstrated interoperability
with one another. Both the Allot Service Gateway and PeerApp’s UltraBand successfully
demonstrated IPv6 operation and IPv4-to-IPv6 migration. The demonstration proves that
these products will perform successfully as operators migrate their networks into the
future.

“We have worked hard on our own and with our partners to develop a transparent caching
solution that improves content delivery for both operators and subscribers,” said Samuel
Bachar, PeerApp’s Vice President of Products and Marketing. “This award recognizes the
benefits our product brings to operators, along with our ability to collaborate
productively with leading companies in our space.”

“Operators are in search of solutions than can create an opportunity out of the deluge
in bandwidth consumption and generate revenue from OTT applications,” said Lior Moyal,
Allot’s VP of Business Development. “This award further validates our investment in
technology partnerships that generate new value-added services for operators and increase
quality of experience for their subscribers. Combined with our recent acquisition of
Ortiva, we now offer the most comprehensive solution in the market to meet the increasing
challenge from OTT video, which is the single largest application on service providers’
networks.”
