Wirex Empowers World Class Live Casino Platforms with Weswit’s Lightstreamer Technology
Weswit and Wirex partner to enhance top-tier iGaming platforms with Lightstreamer technology for real-time data streaming.
MILAN, ITALY -- (August 7, 2013) -- Weswit, a leader in real-time data streaming solutions, and Wirex, a leader in iGaming software solutions, have signed a partnership agreement to empower innovative live casino platforms via Lightstreamer real-time data streaming technology.
Lightstreamer, Weswit’s flagship product, is a massively scalable solution for pushing live data over WebSockets and other web protocols, with up to millions of users.
Wirex offers live casino, RNG casino, and sports betting platforms, all of which are easy to integrate. The company has offices in Italy and Malta and works with a number of significant internal customers including Sportingbet, PKR, Playbet, and Mybet.
Wirex deployed Lightstreamer for its successful online integration with Portomaso, the famous Maltese land-based casino.
Live casino platforms must handle huge volumes of frequently updated data to keep the user interface responsive and offer players a pervasive and truly ‘live’ gaming experience. The overall complexities are drastically higher compared to a standard and even large-sized RNG online casino. Lightstreamer simplified the overall software architecture for real-time data transfers, and allowed us to release a robust iGaming application in a short space of time, with everything working perfectly from the beginning,” said Alessandro Negro, CTO at Wirex.
Wirex has incorporated the Lightstreamer technology for in-game live data delivery on a specific one-on-one variant of blackjack, several real-time monitoring systems, as well as the entire player and croupier chat systems.
Following the initial success of Lightstreamer the scope of the partnership is due to expand, added Negro: “We are working with Weswit to integrate Lightstreamer on another online project for an Italian land-based casino, while we keep exploring its usage for other scenarios, including in-running betting platforms,” he said.
A growing number of businesses, ranging from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, are turning to Lightstreamer for the streaming of real-time data and messaging across multiple channels and apps, including HTML5, Android, iPhone, iPad, and many other platforms.
“We are glad that Lightstreamer is being used and is making a significant difference to operators and suppliers within the iGaming industry,” said Mauro Fantechi, co-CEO and Chairman at Weswit, whose other partners in the sector include spread betting company City Index and bwin.party, which recently chose Lightstreamer for its online poker, casino and bingo products. “Wirex offers outstanding platforms in which the potential of our technology can be fully unleashed,” Fantechi added.
“iGaming platforms need a high level of interactivity and require dramatic performance in bi-directional data push in order to guarantee an enjoyable gaming experience,” said Alessandro Alinone, co-CEO and CTO at Weswit. “Lightstreamer can enhance any kind of gaming platform with a highly scalable real-time server and a rich set of client APIs.”
Lightstreamer is a highly engineered server for the streaming of real-time data to and from mobile, browser-based and desktop applications. Based on HTTP and WebSockets, it is able to pass through any kind of proxy and firewall. Features include bandwidth and frequency control, delta delivery, 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.
