Qwilt’s Video Fabric Controller is architected with the operator needs in mind, featuring the most seamless network insertion possible – the solution is entirely out-of-band and outside the main data connection flow. This approach ensures true “five nine” reliability and 24/7 network continuity, without costly upgrades, complex configurations, or introducing a point of failure or latency into the network.
Each QB device leverages two sets of interfaces for its regular operation:
Video Analysis Interfaces
Seamlessly analyzes network traffic via passive optical taps connected to the main data link with zero impact to the network, to classify and monitor all online video traffic – without requiring external L7 load balancers or DPI gear. SPAN port deployment is also an option.
Video Delivery Interfaces
Connected to the subscriber-side routers and used for flow redirection as well as video serving. These interfaces are used by the QB-Series to perform redirection and video serving of popular content in a similar fashion to how a CDN video server would.
