TIXstream® software provides maximum transfer speed for file exchange over any distance.

TIXstream is the ultimate accelerator and enabler for global data intensive applications in IP Wide Area Networks (WANs). TIXstream software provides end-to-end file transfer and is ready to replace legacy tools like FTP, SCP etc.


TIXstream scheme

Like FTP client and server, TIXstream works on file layer – files are directly read and write a the communication end points. Thus TIXstream needs access to the file system as well as to the computer network.

TIXstream supports all sorts of file systems via Storage Area Network (SAN), Direct Attached Storage (DAS) and Network Attached Storage (NAS). Any regular IP network can be used, like private links, VPNs, satellite links or the Internet.


TIXEL Control Center

A platform independent, easy-to-use web-based graphical user interface (GUI) is available as well as an industry standard SOAP interface for SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) integration. TIXstream can also be controlled via a command line interface (CLI) e. g. for use over SSH (Secure Shell).

  • For specific requirements – like high performance local file system operation, application specific transfers or speeds beyond 10G – TIXEL provides custom taylored solutions. Please contact us.

Transfer rate may be limited when round trip time (RTTmax) exceeds 200ms and network packet loss rate exceeds 0.1%. Sum of transfer rates of parallel transfers may not exceed total transfer rate. Transfer rate is agnostic to content of transmitted data, file formats, etc.
