The Internet is a staple part of modern life, connecting people across the globe in ways that were unimaginable to previous generations. We use it to communicate, to work, to play and to improve our lives. But for all its utility, the Internet still presents key challenges for businesses looking to broadcast and distribute high quality, low latency video at scale. This is a direct result of limitations inherent to present-day internet protocols.
Overcoming this limitation is a key part of the Caton Technology story.
We invested over US$10M and 40,000 of R&D hours — developing Caton Transport Protocols (CTP). CTP comprises our key technologies that assure a high level of stability, quality and security for video, media and other data transmission.
