Harvest Data Around

Hopcast orchestrates direct communications between costumers toward efficient, inclusive content distribution on the Mobile Internet.

WHAT YOU GET

There are multiple advantages of using direct communications between your customers
More users
MORE CUSTOMERS

The cost of cellular data is prohibitive for many. Thanks to Hopcast, you will be able to deliver content to those who cannot afford expensive data planes. And also those who do not want to pay.

Green
GOOD FOR THE PLANET

As users communicate directly through nearby links, you avoid uploading and downloading data from potentially far-away servers in the cloud. The planet will thank you for reducing the energy-greedy paths of the Internet.  

Savings
HUGE CDN SAVINGS

Every time a user fetches data from a neighbor, you save money as you reduce the dependency on costly central servers.

TECHNOLOGY

Several technologies are allowing direct communications between mobile devices. More and more devices, ranging from smartphones to connected things, embed these technologies but under-explore their features, and they are, in general, difficult to deploy at a large scale. Hopcast proposes a solution to efficiently orchestrate direct communication links between mobile devices by leveraging meaningful user-level relationships to orchestrate data exchanges. 

Operation
01.

Interest graph

Hopcast's main innovation is the ability to build, maintain, and explore, in a highly efficient way, the dynamic graph connecting customers and the content they need to harvest.

02.

Proximity inference

Interactions between Hopcast's core engine and customers is adaptive and depends on common interests and geographic proximity. We don't bother a customer if it is not strictly necessary.

03.

Content transfer

Once the link established, data fly directly between the customers without going through any intermediate node. Hopcast never touches the data!

TEAM

Team

The ideas behind Hopcast's offloading technology is the result of a 10+ year-long collaboration between Thales, CNRS, and Sorbonne Université around the broad topic of mobile data offloading and device-to-device communications. We are convinced that our technology will be a game changer for content providers.
