Cleo’s UDP and pTCP File Transfer Protocols

High-speed file transfer protocols

UDP: User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is a lightweight but unreliable protocol that lacks native error detection, data ordering, or recovery. Proprietary technology based on UDP is popular in the media industry due to its stateless transmission characteristic and multicasting capability.

pTCP: Parallel Transmission Control Protocol is based on TCP, which reduces limitations on network speeds and maximizes bandwidth. pTCP is also firewall-friendly, allowing for secure multi-enterprise transactions or replication scenarios across distributed infrastructure.

Cleo Jetsonic®: Cleo Integration Cloud’s large file transfer solution enables customers to achieve high-speed file transfers using proprietary Cleo technology based on pTCP. The solution enables the fastest transfer times in the industry — of any TCP- or UDP- based technology — for any file size with a high level of security, reliability, and data integrity. With the ability to deliver more than 2 terabytes per hour, Cleo’s large file transfer protocol is designed to accelerate data movement to meet business SLAs around deliverability.

fasp™: Aspera Software’s high-speed file transfer protocol is a patented UDP-based transfer technology that achieves speeds faster than conventional protocols like FTP/HTTP and enables large-data transfers across long distances.
