In November 2021, NCTC and Qwilt launched a joint initiative to upgrade NCTC’s member networks across the United States, helping to quickly increase their capacity at a time when on-demand and live streaming continues to grow and dominate traffic in ISP networks during primetime. The partnership leverages Qwilt’s unique CDN technology within NCTC member networks to create a nationwide federated CDN. To date, over 100 NCTC members have signed up to deploy this upgrade in their networks.

Building a Better ArchitectureThis content delivery upgrade project is a first of its kind in the US. Every NCTC member deploying the solution is federated by Qwilt’s cloud service so content publishers can access the entire national CDN through a single API. Qwilt’s technology is compliant with Open Caching guidelines from the Streaming Video Technology Alliance which define an interoperable network of caches for content delivery.
