Grand Canyon University

We have had Qwilt in place for 6 months. It’s rock solid. Currently serves close to 1GBps of video peak per day which is about 65% of our total video. 90% is Netflix. Company is small but they are great to work with. Had it setup in about 2-3 hours and since doesn’t sit in line, no outage putting it in.

Wanachi

As the number of OTT services in East Africa increases and the demand for content continues to grow exponentially, we chose Qwilt to help alleviate the strain on our networks. The results are outstanding  — we’ve seen average bit rate (ABR) improve by 300 percent and end users enjoy higher overall QoE.  By implementing Qwilt’s open caching solution, we were able to take control of content delivery — which means we are building a more intelligent, resilient and stable network.
