REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Qwilt, a leading provider of online video delivery and open video caching solutions, announced today that Telecom Italia, a leading provider of wireless and broadband telecommunications services, has deployed Qwilt’s award-winning open caching solution to boost network capacity and improve quality of over-the-top (OTT) streaming video for its more than 30 million customers. Telecom Italia implemented Qwilt’s solution to provide enhanced quality of experience (QoE) for its subscribers using online video and live streaming services from OTT content providers in Italy.
“Today’s perfect storm of online video traffic has created a strategic problem for network operators who must find new ways to cost effectively and rapidly scale their networks to meet demand without sacrificing quality of experience,” said Alon Maor, CEO and co-founder of Qwilt. “Our open caching technology offers network operators a universal and scalable solution for optimizing both live and on-demand streaming video by caching content at the network edge, close to consumers. The outcome is improved QoE for consumers, along with significant CAPEX and OPEX savings and comprehensive media analytics for the network operator. We are pleased Telecom Italia has embraced the full benefits of our open cache solution with their distributed edge deployment.”
Telecom Italia is highly focused on delivering an outstanding experience to its customers and recognized the need to respond to increasing consumption of streaming video with a new architecture to optimize that growing traffic category on its network. The operator deployed the Qwilt open cache solution over a year ago to create a scalable architecture for its network and has experienced improved performance that meets the needs of its customers.
Qwilt’s open cache solution is engineered specifically for high performance and scalable video delivery in the demanding environment of high capacity operator networks. Qwilt’s solution is delivered as a fully managed service to speed deployment and streamline ongoing operation. The broader operator organization—including network planning, engineering and operations teams—benefit from comprehensive media analytics, which offer insights into growth trends, content sources and consumer preferences. By relying on open caching for online video delivery at the network edge, operators can substantially reduce network capital and operational costs—a typical open cache deployment yields a return on investment (ROI) in less than 12 months.
