The brains behind Qwilt include a talented team of veterans from Cisco and Juniper. We’re backed by visionary investors, including Accel, Redpoint, Marker and Bessemer. Together, we recognized the strategic opportunity to develop the next generation network architecture and infrastructure that service providers need to support the future of online video entertainment.
An online video revolution is underway.
The 50 year old model of television viewing is being shaken at its core by consumers, technology and new service provider business models. First, consumers now have more viewing control and choice than ever before – they choose the content, time, place and screen. Second, technology is enabling the delivery of online video, both recorded and live, at scale and quality that rivals traditional broadcast TV. Third, new service provider business models and the emergence of new content providers have disrupted the conventional value chain and accelerated the transition from TV to online viewing.
This revolution creates a strategic problem for network operators.
This online video revolution is creating one of the most challenging networking technology problems ever encountered by mobile and fixed line service providers. To address this problem, network operators will need to consider new strategies to expand network capacity and keep up with demand. To support the revolution, operators need to deploy a new architecture – intelligent network devices that push video content to the network edge. This architecture is essential to optimize network infrastructure and ensure Quality of Experience (QoE) for the consumer.
Qwilt’s ground-breaking innovation can keep the video revolution on track.
Qwilt’s products allow carriers to create a universal video fabric that works seamlessly, without interruption or changes to content provider or network infrastructures. It helps operators control the cost of growing online video traffic while improving Quality of Experience and keeping options open for future business models.
Rewarding everyone in the video ecosystem
Carriers aren’t the only ones who benefit from Qwilt’s solution. At Qwilt, we are creating solutions that benefit all members of the online video ecosystem: content providers, service providers, CDNs and consumers.
As a verb, the word “quilt” means to stitch together different layers. At Qwilt, this is our higher calling. We recognize the value of bringing the ecosystem together with products that will allow online video to flourish.
