Qwilt announced that Spectranet, a broadband Internet Service Provider in India, has chosen Qwilt’s award-winning open caching solution to optimize over-the-top (OTT) video delivery and improve Quality of Experience (QoE) for its subscribers. By deploying Qwilt’s Open Cache solution, Spectranet is able to scale its network in response to the dramatic growth of streaming video and its subscriber base across India.
Udit Mehrotra, CEO and Managing Director at Spectranet, said, “As India’s first and only end to end fibre broadband and Internet Services Provider, we have over a decade of experience as pioneers in service innovation including our 100 Mbps, truly unlimited, symmetric residential Internet service which we provide to our customers. We chose Qwilt over legacy cache solutions because we wanted a next generation solution that would support our goal to build a smarter, more efficient and higher quality network. The results are excellent, especially for Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) caching which Qwilt handles better than anyone we know. By implementing Qwilt’s open caching solution, we have created a more intelligent network to manage streaming video — the business outcomes for Spectranet are outstanding: we have a more scalable network and our customers enjoy better streaming video quality.”
By analyzing OTT video traffic in real-time, Qwilt’s open cache solution, deployed deep in ISP networks, is able to cache and deliver popular video content locally, close to subscribers, and optimize streaming for both network utilization and quality of experience. The result is a comprehensive and open architecture which can manage OTT, VOD and live streaming video in operator networks. This new open architecture is the foundation which enables network scaling to support the future of online video.
“Internet Service Providers are looking for solutions to scale their networks in response to the phenomenal growth of online video,” said Alon Maor, CEO and co-founder of Qwilt. “Qwilt’s open caching solution results in an open architecture and an intelligent network for streaming. We’re excited to work with Spectranet to extend the reach of our open caching solution and meet growing demand for online video services across India.”
