High-speed file transfer is an extensive and complex subject. Not all file transfer software programs are the same. At a fundamental level, all file transfer programs facilitate the transfer of information between systems. Specific frameworks, or methods, excel at high-speed file transfers. Binfer’s utilizes the Direct Device to Device technology to achieve very high transfer speed.
Many variables affect the file delivery time: internet speed, computer specs, packet loss, and distance are some of the variables can affect the overall time it takes to transfer data. The most significant bottleneck seen in file transfer software today is not necessarily a network issue but a design issue.
Most file transfer applications rely on a central server to facilitate the transfer. Files are copied to a central server. After a long upload period they are then downloaded by the receiving party. The intermediate step, of holding the file before the transfer occurs for the receiving party, accounts for 50% of the total transfer time, on an average.
By combining the separate upload and download steps associated with file transfers, Binfer has been able to redefine ‘High-Speed File Transfer’. Along with the combined upload and download steps, simple drag and drop and auto-resume capabilities make Binfer one of the easiest and most reliable file transfer software available today.
It is a great alternative to other file transfer solutions such as Dropbox and Google Drive, and email.
In the cloud storage-based file transfer example, the upload and download steps are individual tasks that can cause 2x longer total file sharing times. In the email solution, not only does the upload and download dilemma appear again, but the file attachment size is typically limited as well.
One of the more popular methods of avoiding the maximum file size limit is to break apart the file into many small files. For example, you can bypass the file limit by splitting apart documents into smaller chunks and sending them one by one. But, this tactic does not work for all file types. Some files types, like MP4, MP3’s and JPG’s, do not break apart so easily.
For files that cannot be divided, 3rd party compression tools are utilized. Compression adds yet another complicated step to what should be a simple process. Not only must the sending party compress the file, but the receiving party must decompress the received file as well. It is apparent how cumbersome file transfer has become, all in the spirit of allowing a central server to facilitate the file transfer.
Binfer recognizes the hurdles that people are going through to facilitate a high-speed file transfer or to send large files. It allows users to transfer files without the slow transfer speeds associated with cloud-based mechanisms, email-based file transfers, and everything in between. Binfer’s Direct Device to Device high-speed file transfer is a perfect solution for those seeking the best high-speed file transfer application available on the market.
