Qwilt Inc. Announces the Launch of Open Edge Cloud Platform to Transform Media Delivery in Service Provider Networks

Qwilt Inc. announced the launch of Qwilt's Open Edge Cloud platform, a next generation content and application delivery platform for Service Providers that enables a high-quality streaming experience for consumers at scale through managed platform and open API for commercial CDNs and publishers. Qwilt's Open Edge Cloud platform creates a massively distributed content delivery solution that supports applications such as 4K live streaming, AR, VR, self-driving cars and IoT. With the advent of 4K Live Streaming, VR, AR and 360 Video, latency and scale have become critical for many new applications. As cloud computing continues to evolve, more applications will require the Edge Cloud, a platform of applications running on common compute and storage infrastructure deployed deep in Internet service provider networks and, in many cases, in the home, the enterprise or in a vehicle. The Edge Cloud extends and complements the centralized cloud infrastructure run by Amazon, Microsoft, Google and others. The balance between the centralized cloud and Edge Cloud is dynamic at any moment, given consumer and enterprise demand for computer resources, publishers and cloud service providers will decide when content or application delivery should be pushed from the centralized cloud out to the Edge Cloud. Qwilt's Open Edge Cloud Platform, a unique solution for edge computing, is comprised of three core elements. First, a centralized management and control plane orchestrates dynamic assignment of edge cloud resources for content delivery. Second, an Open API to commercial CDNs and publishers serves as a single point of integration for access to worldwide Open Edge Cloud infrastructure. The third and final component is Qwilt's software-based edge delivery nodes that run on common compute and storage hardware, which are deployed deep in service provider networks, at the home or in the enterprise. The Qwilt Open Edge Cloud nodes are designed to deliver both service provider-owned and third party content. They are optimized for high capacity delivery per rack unit to achieve the best possible performance given the restricted space and power considerations at edge locations. Taken together, the Qwilt Open Edge Cloud uniquely facilitates next generation content and application delivery. The Qwilt Open Edge Cloud platform delivers two service provider solutions and will continually expand to address more use cases and applications. Two service provider solutions available for the Qwilt Open Edge Cloud offer open caching and an operator content delivery network. Specifically: Open Caching enables high performance and scalable content delivery.Qwilt's Open Cache solution is engineered specifically for high performance and scalable content delivery in the demanding environment of high capacity operator networks -- regardless of content source or streaming protocol. Operator Content Delivery Network provides service providers full-featured in-network CDN. Qwilt's Open Edge Service Provider CDN is a full-featured, in-network CDN that is cloud-managed and relies on Qwilt's software-based edge nodes for delivery of service provider content. It is designed to satisfy a wide range of managed content delivery scenarios in service provider networks including video on demand (VoD), live event streaming and live linear TV streaming. The Qwilt Edge Cloud Platform and solution portfolio uniquely address service provider content delivery requirements and unleash new possibilities for applications and services. The Qwilt Open Edge Cloud has the capability to deliver high quality streams for events such as the season finale from the service provider's VoD offering while at the same time delivering live streams for the NFL playoffs. Edge Cloud resources can then be directed to support distribution of the latest Apple iOS software release later in the week. Given service provider trends toward all-IP networks, there is a clear need for a comprehensive private CDN that is seamlessly integrated with open caching.
