At the heart of all Qwilt applications is a purpose-built, carrier-grade software platform engineered specifically for video detection, storage, and delivery.
QwOS eliminates the traditional, multi-component approach to video delivery by integrating the core video delivery functions into a single, unified platform. The combined result is carrier-grade performance, smaller footprint, low total cost of ownership, seamless network integration, and ease of management.
Qwilt’s unified Universal Video Delivery solution is the only one in the industry to combine the four key video delivery functions – Classification, Monitoring, Storage, and Optimized Video Delivery - in a purpose-built, carrier-grade, integrated software platform designed to run on readily available off-the-shelf commodity hardware.

QwOS: 5 Core Principles
We set out to develop a platform specifically for the rigors of large scale transparent video caching and delivery highlighting these five core principles to create a best-of-breed solution that is truly carrier-grade:
QwOS is optimized to run on readily available, off-the-shelf commodity systems, maximizing Moore’s law. By focusing our product development efforts on key Universal Video Delivery software functionality – transparent video caching, delivery, and analysis – we created a best-of-breed product that is out-of-the-box ready for the most complex and demanding carrier networks. As hardware continually improves and decreases in price over time, our customers enjoy the benefits of cutting-edge technology and deployment flexibility without the burden of hidden costs of custom hardware.
Qwilt’s QB-Series running QwOS delivers at least 5x the performance per rack unit of any other video delivery vendor, resulting in a smaller footprint and lower TCO than any competing solution. Unlike all other video delivery solutions which bolt together multiple generic point-products, QwOS is an integrated, autonomous solution designed for maximum delivery of concurrent streams to a large number of end users, while remaining completely transparent to the content providers, networks and subscribers. By leveraging integrated video traffic classification function, intelligent multi-tier storage, and software designed specifically for video packet processing, we created a product with an unmatched level of performance for the most bandwidth-intensive carrier networks.

Video Intelligence Inside
One of the core components in the QwOS software is its on-board deep video traffic classification capabilities. Unlike legacy caching systems which rely on external third party solutions for traffic classification, Qwilt’s Online Video Classification Engine is a core component of its unified Universal Video Delivery platform, eliminating the need for costly and complex third party integrations and ensuring that classification and delivery are performed seamlessly, without impacting the network or disrupting content provider business logic or content fidelity. Unlike legacy caching systems that rely on deprecated or insufficient classification methods, Qwilt’s platform uses cutting-edge techniques to accurately identify, cache, and deliver online video in the right format and best quality.

Uptime – All the Time
Quality of service and reliability are key differentiators for carriers in today’s highly competitive marketplace, and device failures resulting in loss of services to thousands of customers are simply not an option. QB-Series was architected exclusively for large-scale, mission-critical carrier network environment, delivering true “five nines” uptime and reliability. QwOS’ transparent video caching and delivery applications are implemented as independent self-contained functional units to ensure the system remains stable and online without impacting other units even in cases of error recovery. In an unlikely event of a hardware failure, Qwilt’s QB-Series is deployed out-of-band, and does not impact the functional state of the network.
Designed for Simplicity
Our carrier oriented products are designed from the ground up as if they were consumer products, making sure that they are intuitive and easy to use with little training and mask the internal system complexities from the users. From a plug-and-play out of band deployment to pre-configured video management policy templates, we sought to develop carrier-grade products that deliver ROI from the moment they are inserted into the network. Our on-board Video Analytics application is a best-in-class video traffic and trend analysis available in an intuitive, easy-to-use web-based interface. Qwilt’s integrated, autonomous platform approach minimizes the administrative burden on the network staff, resulting in the lowest TCO in the industry.
