Smart phones and tablets have dramatically changed the way enterprises conduct business. Their powerful graphical capabilities make them ideally suited for remotely creating and reviewing rich digital content. Potential scenarios include
- Legal professionals accessing client information on an iPad,
- Intelligence teams analyzing mission-critical data,
- Journalists in the field publishing videos of breaking news right from a smart phone.
Any number of mobile scenarios are in use every day by people facing tight deadlines.
The mobile apps that enable these use cases rely on traditional transport technologies that have proven slow and unreliable when used over wireless networks of inconsistent quality (high delay and packet loss).
Built on our patented fasp™ transfer technology, Aspera Mobile Apps for iOS and Android transfer large files over Wi-Fi and cellular networks at speeds that are up to 100X faster than traditional mobile transfer technologies. They fully support fasp security model, provide look and feel of native device apps, and integrate seamlessly with device cameras and photo galleries.
The Aspera Mobile Uploader brings industry-leading, patented Aspera high-speed file transfer to the iPhone and iPad. Based on Aspera’s fasp-AIR™ transport core, the Aspera Mobile Uploader lets you upload photos or videos from the media library on your iPhone or iPad, or directly from your iPhone’s camera to mobile-enabled Aspera servers (including Aspera On-Demand for Amazon Web Services).
The faspex™ app for the Apple iPhone and iPad is a client app for the Aspera faspex web application specifically designed for mobile devices running Apple's iOS operating system. Users can send and receive any content by initiating high-speed fasp transfers using the faspex email-style workflow, adapted to the style of the native iOS email app.
With Aspera’s mobile app for Android, users can initiate high-speed transfers to and from an Aspera Enterprise Server or Connect Server directly from their mobile devices. The Aspera app enables content uploads from the device's built-in camera, the photo gallery, or the Android File System. Users can directly browse Connect Server web-based directory and download the content directly to the device.
“The fact that reporters couldn’t upload content from certain mobile phones was a significant hole in the system, especially with the increasing importance of citizen journalism. Using Aspera’s software to enable this was an absolute no brainer for us. Aspera’s transfer software, which we’ve used for the past three years, is extremely reliable and they were the perfect partner with which to take new provision to the next level.” Jukka Vehkaoja at MTV Finland
