The Open edge Cloud For Service Providers
The Edge Cloud Solution for Mobile, Telco and Cable Network Service Providers
The Open Edge Cloud Means New Possibilities
Qwilt’s Open Edge Cloud solution for service providers changes the conversation. It’s a new architecture for content delivery and more. It relies on edge computing to create network capacity in a different form so you can scale for less and serve streaming content and higher quality from the edge. Furthermore, the Open Edge Cloud places you back into the content delivery value chain so you can activate new business models and revenue streams. It’s time to go to the edge.
Reduce network costs to build capacity for managed and OTT content delivery
Edge delivery means low latency, higher quality delivery of live and on demand video streams to consumers
New content delivery service offering for the OTT content providers
Verizon Deploys Qwilt
“As demand for data and video services increases, Qwilt’s solution helps our network meet today’s demand as well as creates the scalable network necessary for the future.”
Lee Hicks, Vice President of Network Planning for VerizonLearn More
“Streaming video may be the killer app for the internet, but it doesn’t have to KILL the internet. With streaming video expected to represent north of 80% of traffic flowing through service provider networks in the coming years, content delivery is the first of potentially many services they can deploy from within to monetize their edge footprint in the 5G era. Marking this milestone together with Qwilt and Digital Alpha to enable edge cloud services for service providers, we can change the economics of the internet for the future, and help customers such as BT manage video traffic more effectively.”Read the Press Release

The solution also includes a management/analytics interface.
