BitTorrent Deals with Global CE Manufacturers

BitTorrent is collaborating with a number of global hardware manufacturers to promote BitTorrent-embedded consumer products. Given the growth of BitTorrent technology adoption around the world, consumer electronics manufacturers are recognizing the importance of integrating the BitTorrent platform into their products to ensure a fast and seamless download experience for their customers. ASUS, Planex and QNAP are among the first CE manufacturers to implement the BitTorrent download manager into their digital home devices.

ASUS, Planex and QNAP are the first to announce plans to embed BitTorrent's download manager and client into their respective digital home products. Products include the industry's latest and most innovative wireless routers, media servers and network attached storage (NAS) devices. With the growing amount of legitimate content being made available via BitTorrent, hardware that supports the BitTorrent protocol will make it simple for users to consume content even while away from their PC. For instance, a BitTorrent-based router will enable users to connect to the Internet, schedule and download files all without the need for a traditional PC to be used.
