Delta Airport Consultants Selects Certeon to Accelerate Airport Project Planning

BURLINGTON, Mass. --(Business Wire)-- Certeon, the industry's first vendor to provide Application Intelligent Networking(TM) for significantly accelerating applications securely over wide area networks (WANs), today announced Delta Airport Consultants, Inc. has selected the S-Series(R) Application Acceleration Appliance to speed application performance and file access between its corporate and remote offices. Efficiency and responsiveness are critical success factors for Delta; Certeon's S-Series accelerates Delta's remote file access, improving operating efficiencies and enabling the firm to respond more quickly to meet clients' needs.

Delta Airport Consultants, Inc. is a full service aviation consulting firm, which has worked on airport planning, design, construction and environmental projects across the country during its 29 years in business. Delta was looking for a solution to enhance its data transfer times and improve the performance of its Web-based applications in all of its satellite offices around the United States. Prior to selecting Certeon's S-Series, Delta considered Web caching devices and expensive T1 bonding technologies to mitigate the negative effects of the WAN on its Microsoft(R) SharePoint(R) Web infrastructure. The S-Series was the only solution to provide a noticeable difference in Delta's application performance, as well as file access between its remote branches and corporate office. In most cases, Delta was able to reduce application access from more than 30 seconds to less than five seconds.

"Increases in performance translate into an increase in our productivity," states William Hamblen, director of IT consulting services, Delta Airport Consultants, Inc. "With Certeon's S-Series, we no longer have long waits for application files moving between project team members."

Certeon's S-Series Application Acceleration Appliances alleviate slow application response times caused by low network bandwidth, high latency, packet loss and contention. The S-Series, with embedded Application Acceleration Blueprints for SharePoint, identifies the application objects contained within documents, and the changes in those documents. It then only sends the compressed differences over the network, significantly reducing network traffic. The end result is a dramatic improvement in application performance, file access and Web-page rendering times. The S-Series fits seamlessly within a WAN infrastructure with no change to client, server or application software.

"Competitive consulting businesses, such as Delta Airport Consultants, Inc., require a high performance Web-based infrastructure to access files and applications to meet the business demands of their clients and partners," states Peter Dougherty, president and CEO at Certeon. "The S-Series significantly reduces application response times to maximize user productivity and satisfaction."

In 2006, aviation test equipment supplier Ideal Aerosmith deployed Certon's S-Series to support collaboration with remote partners. The new customer relationship with Delta Airport Consultants serves to further strengthen Certeon's presence in the aviation market.
