GCU's Jason Sebastiani on deploying Qwilt's Video Fabric

Today, video is already consuming roughly 70% of your university’s network bandwidth – most of the consumption is for similar, viral content.

By deploying an open caching solution, universities can scale their network efficiently for this demand while understanding OTT video traffic sources, volumes, consumption and trends

Student demand for streaming video from sites like Netflix, Amazon and YouTube is growing at a phenomenal rate.

You need the right network architecture in place so that your network can scale for this growing demand while giving your students the performance and quality of experience they want.


is “video time” for most students

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.  The iOS 8.0 release was a non-event for us because Qwilt cached it..our average user was able to upgrade in 25 minutes.  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.  Let it sit for a week and “learn” all the stuff to cache, then turned it on and got immediate savingsJason Sebastiani  Principal Network Engineer, GCU
