Qwilt, a provider of transparent caching and online video delivery solutions, has unveiled what it claims is the industry’s first transparent caching solution for live-streamed events online: Qwilt Live Stream Cache. The new functionality will enhance Qwilt’s QB-Series Video Fabric Controllers, which were purpose built to address the unique challenges of OTT video delivery for network service providers. Qwilt Live Stream Cache represents a major technological and commercial breakthrough for the Internet video industry, enabling the efficient delivery of high-quality live OTT event streaming to broadband subscribers worldwide.
“High quality live event streaming is the ‘holy grail’ of online video. However, until now, the required infrastructure from the origin server, through CDN, via operator last mile network, was not designed to deal with the scale and capacity required to deliver a high quality experience to the consumers. As consumers increasingly look to access live and VOD content from connected devices, network operators and content providers must keep pace with demand,” said Alon Maor, CEO and Co-Founder of Qwilt. “Our breakthrough approach to transparent edge caching continues to benefit network operators around the world with the delivery and optimization of online video. Now, with the addition of Live Stream Cache, we are offering the first comprehensive video delivery solution that addresses all aspects of the online video equation, with unprecedented quality of experience and performance.”
