REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Qwilt, a leading provider of online video delivery and transparent caching solutions, today announced that Cable Television Toyama, a cable network operator in Japan, has selected and deployed its Qwilt Video Fabric Controller, achieving nearly 50-percent transparent caching efficiency for over the top (OTT) video, with a 2x improvement in quality of experience (QoE) for its subscribers. Systems integrator IT Frontier (ITF), a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation, managed the implementation.
Cable Television Toyama's subscribers consume various types of OTT broadband traffic. From popular online video content sites such as YouTube and Dailymotion to software updates like the recent iOS7 update from Apple, their network was experiencing strain due to increasing traffic and demand.
Qwilt's Video Delivery solutions were designed to address the challenges and opportunities presented by OTT video. Its flagship product line, the QB-Series Video Fabric Controller, monitors video traffic across operator networks in real-time to identify trending and popular titles, and then stores them locally at the subscriber edge, in close proximity to end users. Qwilt eliminates the need for duplication of content streams from origin sites or content delivery networks (CDNs), speeding up time to delivery and reducing network strain and congestion, especially during peak viewing times, for a seamless, high-quality consumer viewing experience. Qwilt offers 5x better performance, unprecedented reliability and efficiency for operators, and improved QoE for their customers.
