REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Qwilt, a leading provider of transparent caching and video delivery solutions, today announced a technology partnership with Limelight Networks, Inc. ("Limelight"), a global leader in digital presence management. The two companies will jointly develop solutions that help content and service providers significantly reduce infrastructure scaling costs while improving the quality of experience (QoE) for their subscribers.
Limelight and Qwilt have partnered to develop solutions that will address the dramatic growth of online or "Over-the-top" (OTT) video content. OTT video typically traverses both long haul (transit) and short haul (backbone) networks to reach the consumer. Limelight's content delivery network (CDN) optimizes the long haul by delivering video content directly to the operator network. Qwilt's next generation transparent caching platform, in turn, optimizes the short haul by caching and delivering content at the network edge, close to the consumer. The integration of Limelight and Qwilt solutions will streamline video delivery from the content provider origin servers all the way to the network edge, close to the consumer.
