BitTorrent Inc. announced that it has established BitTorrent Japan as a wholly owned subsidiary headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. BitTorrent founded BitTorrent Japan to address the growing demand for peer-assisted content delivery technology among Japanese content publishers and consumer electronics (CE) manufacturers.
â€œWe are intrigued by Japanâ€™s advanced broadband environment that exists as a result of innovation and competition among ISPs. BitTorrent has the ability to leverage the capacity that exists within the Japanese Internet to create great user experiences for online applications while dramatically reducing infrastructure costs for publishers,â€ said Ashwin Navin, President and Co-founder of BitTorrent, Inc. â€œAlthough P2P technologies are still misunderstood as a result of their abuses, we are confident BitTorrent, due to its security, performance, efficiency, and technical merits, will become the leading peer-assisted delivery platform in Japan for on-demand video, software, and video games. Having a physical presence in Japan promises an unparalleled level of support to our Japanese partners and commitment to customer success.â€
