Solutions for Fixed Network Operators

A digital entertainment revolution is underway. Is your network ready?

Qwilt's Video Fabric Controller Combines Open Caching, Video Delivery, and Analytics

Cable and Telecom networks were not designed to carry these amounts of video traffic. With open caching, operators have an smart alternative to build the network capacity video hungry subscribers are demanding, by using intelligence instead of endless router expansions.

An open cache identifies data that’s frequently sent in network traffic, caches it locally, and delivers it from the network edge when requested – without requiring any change of behavior or business logic by content providers, CDNs, or subscribers.

The 80/10 Rule of online video caching

The 80/10 Rule of online video caching

In most service provider networks, over 80% of video volume is typically consumed by only 10% of titles. This means that most of the traffic volume consists of duplicate titles repeatedly traversing the network and causing congestion.

Open Caching is the Cost-Effective Approach to Bandwidth Management

Stop Throwing Routers at the Problem

In the past, the only way to increase capacity was by adding more costly infrastructure. But as consumer demand for bandwidth continues to soar, simply adding more routers is no longer a scalable or cost-effective approach.

Caching Eliminates the Costly Inefficiency

An intelligent open caching solution can dramatically reduce the volume of repetitive traffic by identifying, storing and delivering the most popular, high-quality video content from inside the service provider network.

Caching and the Video Delivery Ecosystem

Open caching adds tremendous value for all members of the video delivery chain – creating a symbiotic ecosystem of network operators, content providers, CDN operators, and subscribers.

Why Should Network Operators Deploy a

Open Caching Solution?

Minimize Your Infrastructure Spend

It’s time to stop throwing routers at the problem. Deploying an open caching solution at the subscriber edge substantially reduces the need for costly network-wide infrastructure upgrades to support rapidly increasing video traffic. Rather than continually investing budget and resources into acquisition and deployment of costly equipment just to keep up with the required network capacity, operators can maximize the return on investment from their existing infrastructure while making strategic investments to create a more agile and robust network.

Offloading Traffic to Caches Helps Reduce and Minimize Infrastructure Investment Costs

Reduce Operational Costs

A Video Fabric Controller can reduce the amount of OTT video traffic in your network by up to 80%. With video traffic exceeding 50% of total bandwidth in most markets, this reduction translates into substantial savings on bandwidth, peering, and other transit-related costs. A unified video delivery solution requires less rack space, energy, and management effort by the network operations staff.

Improve Subscriber QoE

In a highly competitive market where end user satisfaction ranks among top differentiators, a Video Fabric Controller enables carriers to take subscriber QoE to previously unattainable levels. Next-generation open caching solutions are designed and engineered specifically for high demands of video delivery at the subscriber edge, capable of delivering a maximum number of concurrent streams to a large number of subscribers while ensuring content originator’s fidelity and optimizing the end user QoE.
