A+E Networks UK Uses Signiant's Secure Media Shuttlehybrid SaaS File Transfer Solution

A+E Networks UK, a joint venture between A+E Networks and BSkyB (News - Alert), is using Signiant’s Media Shuttle hybrid SaaS (News - Alert) file transfer solution to transfer its massive content files across the globe with ease, security and high speed. A+E Networks UK is one of the many organizations using Media Shuttle to fill the gaps of online file sharing and FTP solutions.

The file transfer tool gives control to the IT department to track the assets. Using this solution, A+E Networks UK now maintains several Media Shuttle Workgroup portals to transfer its entire product line of content to its broadcast partners from New York to London quickly. While at the same time, the IT department retains the power to determine where content is stored, which might be on private networks or in the cloud, and how network resources should be allocated for maximum enterprise-wide efficiency.

Tony Gill, director of operations, A+E Networks UK, said, “As a long time user of Signiant solutions, we know their depth of expertise in network optimization and file acceleration, and it clearly demonstrated in Media Shuttle. Media Shuttle was easy to set up without IT intervention, even easier to use, and lets us leverage both the public and private cloud. With Media Shuttle we have gained a highly scalable system that's reliable and effortless both internally and for our partners.”

Media Shuttle offers an effective alternative to file transfer solutions without associated file size constraints or security risks. The solution’s hybrid SaaS architecture enables users to access fast file transfer capabilities through a simple interface delivered from the cloud while maintaining the file cache within the secure control of their own network. The solution is based on a flexible subscription pricing model which makes it easier for users to choose depending on the need-basis.

Recently, A+E Networks UK was in news when it decided to use Argo Systems’ revenue management system, Medea, to manage carriage fee revenue and sales distribution in the UK, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
