We are very focused on service delivery and building customer value. Because of this we are continually seeking ways to innovate and enhance our offerings," said . "We have implemented other vendor caching products in the past, but none have addressed our caching performance and QoE requirements like Qwilt. Qwilt's superior cache efficiency and ease of deployment achieved levels of performance that we never thought possible. We can't imagine continuing without the gains their technology provides.

Alon Maor, CEO of Qwilt
Operators worldwide are focused on solving the problem of online video growth and its impact on their networks. By eliminating the need for redundant video streams from origin sites or content delivery networks (CDNs) across the operator network, we are able to help operators improve QoE and minimize network strain and congestion, especially during peak viewing times. The result is a flawless, high-quality consumer viewing experience. We are pleased to work with Slingshot and Orcon to help them deliver on their ongoing commitment to innovation and unparalleled quality of experience.
