Qwilt, Wednesday announced its enhanced Open Edge Service Provider CDN — an application within its line of Open Edge Cloud solutions.

The Open Edge CDN, with an augmented suite of APIs, extends Qwilt’s expertise in edge computing, open caching and web-scale content delivery with an innovative, cloud-based service provider CDN offering built on the Apache Traffic Control open source project.

Traffic Control was first developed by Comcast and then open-sourced in 2015. Qwilt has enhanced the core Traffic Control baseline with web-scale technology and cloud-powered Qwilt management.

According to Qwilt, this combination of cloud-based CDN operations and edge delivery results in two unique benefits to the service provider: web-scale architecture and low-latency, high-quality content delivery from the network edge said Qwilt.

The Open Edge CDN enables cable, telco and mobile network service providers to build a private CDN to distribute their own or partner’s managed content to their subscribers with a broadcast TV-like experience, regardless of the type of consuming device or the subscriber location.  

The Open Edge CDN is optimized to support streaming delivery of TV services including video-on-demand (VoD), live events and cloud digital video recorders (CDVR), said Qwilt.

Alon Maor, CEO, Qwilt
Qwilt’s Open Edge CDN solution provides our customers with a new, web-scale architecture for content delivery. We invite service providers to join the movement to the edge.  Our Open Edge CDN is another mission-critical application for the service provider edge cloud.

Jan Van Doorn, Fellow at Comcast 
Qwilt’s innovative work on the Open Edge CDN is exactly the sort of thing we were hoping to see when we open-sourced Traffic Control.
