"Entera, Inc., a developer of Internet Content Delivery Technologies, today announced TeraEDGE, the company's break-through, standards-based caching software. TeraEDGE allows service providers and content providers to dynamically replicate streaming content closer to the end user, thereby improving the end-user's viewing experience and reducing bandwidth costs for ISPs and content providers. For a limited time starting on July 1, 2000, a Linux beta version of the TeraEDGE software will be available for free download from www.entera.com. TeraEDGE is the first commercial Linux-based stream and Web caching software. Soon to be released, major (OS) platforms will be available for beta version downloads including Sun Solaris x86, Sun Solaris Sparc, Windows 2000/NT and FreeBSD."

"As with all of Entera's technologies, the TeraEDGE software is standards-based, highly scaleable, embeddable and includes open APIs for both agents and the software's object store. Additionally, Entera is launching a full Developer Support Program to compliment the TeraEDGE solution. TeraEDGE's scalability lends itself to larger scale supporting of narrowband to broadband applications. The TeraEDGE engine is embeddable so that it would lend itself to deployment of future caching solutions like residential gateways or global positioning systems. The APIs are open to both the caching agents and for the first time ever in any caching solution, open to the object store. Entera's open APIs provide the ability to build custom software modules for specific needs that extend the functionality of the TeraEDGE agents and provides the Linux developer community the ability to write new agents to interact with the caching engine for multiple caching needs."

"The proliferation of high speed broadband cable and DSL combined with the current advances in streaming applications, such as Web radio and video webcasts, has created an exciting growth opportunity for ISPs and content providers delivering streaming media directly to end-users," says Steve West, President and CEO of Entera. "Entera's TeraEDGE solves the current problems of video and audio quality as well as reduced bandwidth limitations."
