REDWOOD CITY, Calif, – September 6, 2023 – Qwilt today announces its participation at IBC 2023, where it will showcase the transformative power and global success of Open Caching for content delivery. Already deployed with 175+ content publishers and service providers, this unifying solution is serving over one billion consumers globally, enabling content to be delivered in the quality it was imagined. Exhibiting alongside its strategic partner, Cisco (Hall 3, 3.B51), Qwilt will show how its joint solution – Qwilt’s Open Edge platform running on Cisco’s edge compute hardware – provides Quality-as-a-Service content delivery by pushing content caching and delivery far out to the embedded edge of the carrier network.

Since last year’s IBC Show, Qwilt has reported considerable momentum in its ongoing mission to build the world’s largest and highest-performing edge CDN, empowering content publishers to reach end users from the true embedded network edge. With 900+ points-of-presence (PoPs) globally – located closer to end users than ever before – Qwilt is pioneering the use of Open Caching for service providers and disrupting the commercial CDN market. In the past year alone, Qwilt has added many major new service providers partners to its global edge CDN, including Fastweb, J:COM, stc Group, Telefonica, and Vodafone.

At IBC 2023, Qwilt will highlight the unique ability of its technology and services to offload 99% of core network traffic, enabling the delivery of high-quality content for some of the world’s largest streaming platforms. Visitors to the Cisco stand will be able to view a demonstration of the significant global capacity of Qwilt’s ‘All Edge’ network, built on the Streaming Video Technology Alliance’s Open Caching specifications. The demonstration will also showcase the ability of Qwilt’s Open Edge CDN to deliver extremely low latency, greater control over APIs, and a more flexible business model.

“As consumers increasingly stream more online content, the demand for exceptional streaming and other digital experiences is surging rapidly. Delivering content efficiently and at the highest quality has become crucial,” said Jonathan Candee, Chief Commercial Officer, Content Providers, Qwilt. “Open Caching allows content and application publishers to get closer to their users than ever before by tapping directly into the service provider network edge, resulting in an unmatched user experience – even during peak traffic. Our next-generation CDN technology is just the first of many Open Edge use cases that Qwilt plans to open up through our API-first ecosystem in the short, medium, and long term.”

Qwilt’s federated, unified, global edge CDN provides content publishers with a streamlined solution, eliminating the need to negotiate individual relationships with service providers. Unlike traditional commercial CDN nodes that are located centrally in the mid-mile range, Open Caching nodes are deployed deeply within the service provider network, often tens of miles – or even a few blocks – away from end users. This proximity enables applications and content to bypass peering points and the ISP core network, traditionally some of the biggest roadblocks to a high-quality experience. Qwilt consistently outperforms traditional CDNs in terms of streaming QoE. Some of the world’s largest streaming platforms use Qwilt’s solution today for streaming media delivery.

By leveraging Qwilt’s carrier-grade network delivery solution already embedded into the service provider network, content publishers can ensure enhanced performance, cost-effective delivery, and greater scalability than possible with traditional CDNs, addressing challenges such as the need for greater visibility, predictability, and control of video traffic, particularly for peak demand during live streamed events.
