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.
