Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) June 30, 2008
Leaf Networks, LLC announced today the release of its Web P2P (peer-to-peer) platform. As an initial demonstration of their Web-based P2P technology, Leaf Networks has implemented a P2P Facebook application. This free Facebook application allows Facebook users to create a "game lobby" in their Facebook profile and host a game server on their own PC. Facebook friends can view the game lobby and connect directly to the game server utilizing Leaf Networks' underlying P2P technology.
The new technology fills a void between existing Web and P2P applications, allowing public and private content to be combined without the need for centralizing all of the content.
"With the current trends in file sizes and end-user bandwidth, P2P makes much more economical sense," says Jeff Capone, Leaf Networks CEO. "In the coming future, P2P technologies will seamlessly assist the Web for connecting users to rich media -- bypassing traditional content delivery networks."
Currently, Leaf Networks OEMs embedded and desktop versions of the platform but plans on making those APIs and its Web-based P2P platform available to developers as part of its Developers Program early in Q3. Leaf Networks will also make its server components available, allowing easy integration between its P2P presence and availability with presence servers in other applications.
Leaf Networks licenses its technology to hardware and software vendors. Several new hardware and software applications which leverage Leaf technology are slated for release and introduction this year. Leaf Networks also makes its basic P2P end-user application available as a free download on its website, http://www.leafnetworks.net.
Leaf Network's Game Lobby Facebook plugin, the first of many future applications which will utilize Leaf Networks Web P2P Platform, can be found on Facebook at: apps.facebook.com/leaflobby.
