More France IP Communications Stories
December 22, 2009
According to a press release, the Web sites are now able to respond quickly to high volumes of requests for information on service options and pricing submitted by French electricity and natural gas utility customers, thanks to Cotendo's Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA) service.
Both Web sites are hosted by the independent administrative authority Le Mdiateur National de l'nergie.
Le Mdiateur National de l'nergie is responsible for recommending solutions to disputes relating to the performance of contracts for the supply of electricity or natural gas, and taking part in campaigns to inform consumers of their rights, according to company officials.
“With Cotendo's DSA as part of our Web infrastructure, we managed traffic flows and spikes 40 times greater than would otherwise be possible,” said Sophie Marin, communications officer, Le Mdiateur National de l'nergie, in the release.
The service is especially useful for the utility customers who visit the interactive comparator Web site where they can immediately get detailed information on the wide range of service and pricing plans available from different utility providers.
“By facilitating their decision-making, the Cotendo technology strongly supports our mission to promote consumer choice,” Marin added.
Cotendo claims its Dynamic Site Acceleration and other CDN and site acceleration services are significantly more robust than those offered by competitors, plus they are easier and more flexible to deploy.
Cotendo is offering the service to French national energy ombudsman along with its regional strategic partner, Cedexis.
Last month Cotendo announced enhancements to its Unity Platform to enable online retailers, advertising networks, transactional enterprises, and professional news and data content sites to deliver faster, secure and reliable static and dynamic content to online customers and site visitors.
