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.

Qwilt’s Open Edge Cloud Solution

Qwilt’s Open Edge Cloud solution delivers CDN functionality over an edge computing infrastructure, pushing the content caching and delivery as far out to the edge of the network as possible. Service providers can establish a massively distributed layer of content caching resources that enable content delivery from the closest possible location to subscribers. Each edge server is low cost and can be utilized by other virtual network function (VNF)-based services, which makes it cost effective enough to distribute throughout the service providers access network. This gives the solution an ability to scale up very rapidly without a long investment payback time.
