Cisco and Qwilt: Transforming Content Delivery with Open Caching at the Edge | Watch Now
Opening Doors to Better QoE & New Revenue
Jason Hansen, CTO of Conway Corp and long-time Qwilt customer, explains what he finds most compelling about Qwilt’s offer for a free CDN upgrade and why he considers Qwilt’s solution the “Swiss Army knife” of content delivery.
At the End of the Day, It’s About Customer Experience
Jason Hansen, CTO of Conway Corp and NCTC Board Member, provides his argument for the need for caching and explains why the 34 million households covered by NCTC members will benefit when you upgrade your network with Qwilt’s free open caching offering and join the nationwide NCTC Federated CDN.
Developed and endorsed by the Streaming Video Alliance, Open Caching offers a platform that federates content delivery infrastructure, deployed deep inside service provider networks, into a global CDN with open APIs for content publishers. It is designed to help service providers easily deploy an edge CDN, offering more control over content flows and catering to the needs of global and regional content providers for more capacity, consistency in content delivery and superior performance.
Working with the NCTC, we are building a unified, next-generation CDN across the membership. A single API allows content publishers access to a national federation of NCTC member networks, providing a superior quality streaming experience for viewers and monetization of content delivery for NCTC ISPs through revenue sharing with content providers.
Through Qwilt’s partnership with Cisco, NCTC members receive best-in-class CDN technology, including software and cloud services from Qwilt and hardware from Cisco.
Qwilt is a Founding Member of the Streaming Video Alliance and a leader of the Open Caching industry movement.
