Company

Business description: Peribit Networks is now the world leader in bandwidth creation products that boost application performance. Peribit’s patent-pending Molecular Sequence Reduction (MSR) technology dramatically improves wide-area network (WAN) performance. The development of MSR marks the first time DNA research techniques have been used to bolster the performance and capacity of IT applications. Peribit has discovered that up to 90 percent of WAN traffic is repetitive data. Using MSR, Peribit’s products identify and eliminate repetitive data running over wide area network links, effectively increasing capacity by up to 10 times instantly, without the need for purchasing additional bandwidth. Peribit’s products frequently provide a hard dollar ROI in a matter of months.
