Qwilt Inc. Key Developments

Wananchi Group Selects Qwilt to Improve Streaming Video Quality of Experience for Subscribers in East Africa

Qwilt announced that Wananchi has chosen Qwilt's open caching solution to optimize over-the-top (OTT) video delivery and improve Quality of Experience (QoE) for its subscribers. By deploying Qwilt's Open Cache solution, Wananchi was able to minimize the network strain resulting from the launch of major new streaming services in Kenya. By analyzing OTT video traffic in real-time, Qwilt's solution is able to cache and deliver popular video content locally at the subscriber edge. With network congestion continuing to plague operators worldwide, removing the need for duplicate streams from origin sites or content delivery networks (CDNs) is essential to controlling the cost of network infrastructure. Deploying a comprehensive open cache solution to manage OTT, VOD and live streaming video in operator networks results in better preparation for the future of online video and ultimately delivers a high quality consumer viewing experience. Qwilt's open cache solution is engineered specifically for high performance and scalable video delivery in the demanding environment of high capacity operator networks. Qwilt's solution is delivered as a fully managed service to speed deployment and streamline ongoing operation. The broader operator organization - including network planning, engineering and operations teams - benefit from comprehensive media analytics, which offer insights into growth trends, content sources and consumer preferences.

Qwilt and Altiostar Unite to Build Next Generation Mobile Network Infrastructure for Network Operators

Qwilt announced a technology and go-to-market partnership with Altiostar. Combined, Qwilt Open Caching technology and Altiostar eNodeB technology will create a fully integrated C-RAN and open cache offering for mobile operators. Qwilt and Altiostar are engaged in joint go-to-market initiatives including joint marketing and selling of their integrated solution which is currently in trials. Altiostar's expertise in eNodeB technology and burgeoning leadership in C-RAN technology, an emerging category of mobile network infrastructure, combined with Qwilt Open Caching capability creates a best-in-class, next generation network infrastructure for mobile operators scrambling to support networks straining from video demand. Altiostar brings timely and much needed disruption to the mobile infrastructure market through its NFV Cloud RAN with Ethernet Fronthaul technology, creating virtual RAN infrastructure at a fraction of the cost of conventional systems. Qwilt, in turn, offers mobile operators access to open caching at the eNodeB level of the mobile network -- unseen before in the industry. In combination, the solution dramatically reduces network latency and, pivotally, improves viewer QoE. Resulting in substantial increase in RAN efficiency and dramatic improvement in capital utilization, hidden network capacity is unlocked. In addition, mobile operators can optimize their backhaul capacity spend, thereby tackling the next bottleneck in LTE networks.

Slingshot and Orcon Selects Qwilt to Power Video Delivery

Qwilt has announced it will power the online video traffic delivered by Slingshot and Orcon. Qwilt's Video Fabric Controller will be used by Slingshot and Orcon, both owned by CallPlus, to cache and deliver online video traffic from a growing number of content providers, including Amazon, Apple, Hulu, Netflix and Twitch.
