Open Edge Cloud for Service Providers

New Possibilities

The Open Edge Cloud

Qwilt’s Open Edge Cloud solution for service providers changes the conversation. It’s a new architecture for content delivery and more, relying on edge computing to create network capacity in a different form so you can scale for less and serve streaming content and higher quality from the edge. Furthermore, the Open Edge Cloud places you back into the content delivery value chain so you can activate new business models and revenue streams. It’s time to go to the edge.

“At BT we connect for good and streaming video has never been more important than in today’s challenging times. Our mission at BT is to ensure our customers have the best experience every time and with record levels of streaming we needed to disrupt the status quo. Qwilt’s pioneering open caching platform together with Cisco’s cloud infrastructure gives BT the first 5G MEC capability in the UK to deliver premium quality video and on demand services.”

Going to the Edge

Qwilt’s Open Edge Cloud for service providers dramatically reduces the cost of building network capacity, improves delivery quality, and opens the door to new business models, customers and revenue from content publishers.

Our unique solution delivers CDN functionality over an edge computing infrastructure, pushing content caching and delivery closer to end users than ever before. This edge cloud can be utilized by other virtual network function (VNF)-based services and for other edge computing workloads, making it cost-effective to distribute throughout the service provider’s network and enabling easy and rapid scaling to meet growing demand. Based on Open Caching from the Streaming Video Technology Alliance, Qwilt’s Open Edge Cloud utilizes cloud-based APIs and services to federate many Qwilt-enabled service provider edge clouds around the world into a global, unified content delivery platform. With one connection to Qwilt’s cloud-based APIs, publishers can access the global network.

Partnering to Enable the Service Provider Edge Cloud for Content Delivery

This full stack, turn-key, managed content delivery solution is offered through a partnership with Cisco and Qwilt, combining Qwilt’s innovative content delivery platform – based on Open Caching – with Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS) and Nexus 9000 switches for edge compute and critical networking infrastructure.

Going to the edge Cisco

“Streaming video may be the killer app for the internet, but it doesn’t have to KILL the internet. With streaming video expected to represent north of 80% of traffic flowing through service provider networks in the coming years, content delivery is the first of potentially many services they can deploy from within to monetize their edge footprint in the 5G era. Marking this milestone together with Qwilt and Digital Alpha to enable edge cloud services for service providers, we can change the economics of the internet for the future, and help customers such as BT manage video traffic more effectively.”
