Buffalo Inc. will integrate BitTorrent functionality into its next generation of NAS devices, which will ship globally. As part of the collaboration, Buffalo will also participate in BitTorrents Device Certification Program, which provides compatibility between hardware and the BitTorrent-based consumer and commercial-grade services. BitTorrent has already teamed with chipmakers Marvell Semiconductors and iAdea/Star Semiconductor; and hardware manufacturers ASUSTeK, Netgear, Planex Communications and QNAP Systems.
The BitTorrent Device Software business is one of three lines of business being operated by BitTorrent, Inc. BitTorrent launched its consumer entertainment network in February 2007 at www.bittorrent.com featuring titles from over 40 major content partners such as 20th Century Fox, MGM, MTV Networks and Paramount. BitTorrent will also soon be launching its commercial content delivery platform, BitTorrent DNA.
The BitTorrent SDK is generally available now for hardware developers to license.
