  1. South African ISP Picks Qwilt for Streaming Video

    South African Internet service provider Afrihost has chosen Qwilt 's open caching solution to optimize streaming video delivery and improve quality of experience (QoE) for its customers. The companies worked with local systems integrator Three6Five. "At Afrihost, we are 100% committed to making sure our customers get great value and outstanding service," said Brendan Armstrong, CTO at Afrihost. "As the number of OTT services in South Africa increases and the demand for content continues to grow, we chose Qwilt to improve the quality of our customer's experience. By implementing Qwilt's open caching solution, we were able to improve the quality of content delivery. The business outcomes are outstanding - both quality of experience and network scaling costs improve - a win-win for the Afrihost team and our customers." Qwilt's solution is designed to analyze OTT video traffic in real time to cache and deliver popular video content locally at the subscriber edge, to remove the need for duplicate streams from origin sites or content delivery networks (CDNs). "There is a transformation underway, from broadcast television to Internet TV, that creates a strategic problem for network operators who must scale their networks cost effectively while improving streaming quality of experience," said Alon Maor, CEO and co-founder of Qwilt. "We're pleased to partner with Afrihost to improve the streaming experience for their customers in South Africa. With this deployment, we've extended the reach of our open caching solution to meet growing demand for online video services in South Africa." Qwilt's solution is delivered as a managed service and includes media analytics, including growth trends, content sources and consumer preferences.
