Weswit Renews Lightstreamer Supply Agreement with Yazino
Social games developer extends use of market-leading Lightstreamer technology for real-time data delivery
MILAN, ITALY -- (August 29, 2013) -- Weswit, a leader in real-time data streaming solutions, has renewed its deal to supply its Lightstreamer real-time data streaming technology to Yazino, the specialist in in-sync, cross-platform social casino gaming.
Lightstreamer is a massively scalable solution for pushing live data over WebSockets and other web protocols to up to millions of concurrent users. It has been deployed by Yazino since 2011 to handle the live game interaction, including the real-time delivery of key game information and communications.
The new agreement means Lightstreamer will continue to play a vital role in facilitating the unique synchronous, multiplayer environment and live interaction of Yazino’s games on both web and mobile platforms.
“Most social games are asynchronous – they aren’t optimised for human interactions, only allowing players to share achievements and invite existing friends to play. Yazino develops synchronous social games to encourage a far closer to real life behaviour that lets players truly interact online with friends and meet new, real people,” said Hussein Chahine, founder and CEO of Yazino.
“We take the playing experience to another level and Lightstreamer’s real-time data delivery is a key requirement for us to provide this fully-engaged, in-sync offering. Lightstreamer rightly has a reputation for being dependable, scalable and fully functional across platforms, which is essential to our future as a fast-growing, multi-channel social casino games publisher. We have been very pleased with Lightstreamer’s performance and support for the past two years and look forward to continuing our partnership,” Chahine added.
Since launching in 2010, Yazino has developed five in-sync social games: Slots Wheel Deal, High Stakes Slots, Roulette, Blackjack and Texas Hold’em Poker.
“Yazino is a company that is literally changing the game within the industry, so we are very proud that Lightstreamer has helped contribute to their success,” said Mauro Fantechi, co-CEO and Chairman at Weswit.
“Playing in genuine real-time enables deeper engagement and a heightened social gaming experience. Lightstreamer is the most suitable technology to make any game live, with minimum effort and complete peace of mind – anytime, anywhere and on any platform, including smartphones and tablets.”
Customers of Lightstreamer range from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, with Yazino joining other partners in the betting and gaming industry, including bwin.party, Wirex, IG and City Index.
Lightstreamer is a highly engineered server for the streaming of real-time data to and from any mobile or browser-based and desktop applications, including HTML5, Android, iPhone, iPad, and many others. Based on HTTP and WebSockets, it is able to pass through any kind of proxy and firewall. Features include bandwidth and frequency control, proxies and firewall traversal capabilities and total control over security and quality of service.
Weswit, with its flagship product Lightstreamer, is a global leader in real-time web streaming solutions. Since the beginning, Weswit has been focused on real-time technologies aimed at making the Web a live environment, and superseding the traditional web paradigm, where any update had to be "pulled" by the client rather than "pushed" by the server.
Weswit has provided Lightstreamer to a growing number of companies ranging from small size start-ups to Fortune 500 corporations, including top-tier financial institutions, as well as aerospace, military, energy, gaming, sporting, media and entertainment companies. In 2012, Weswit has been recognized as a "Cool Vendor in Application and Integration Platforms" by Gartner, the world's leading information technology research and advisory company.
Weswit has thousands of free users and hundreds of customers worldwide, including Bank of America Merrill Lynch, J.P. Morgan, Morgan Stanley, NASA, Sony Music, Honeywell, bwin.party, SocGen, UBS, IG, City Index, ICAP, Fixnetix, and many others.
