Qwilt, a leading provider of online video delivery and open video caching solutions, announced that Wananchi, East Africa's leading home entertainment operator, has chosen Qwilt's open caching solution to optimize its over-the-top (OTT) video delivery and improve Quality of Experience (QoE) for its subscribers.
Wananchi will deploy Qwilt's Open Cache solution to minimize the network strain resulting from the launch of major new streaming services in Kenya. By analyzing OTT video traffic in real-time, Qwilt said that the solution is able to cache and deliver popular video content locally at the subscriber edge.
According to Qwilt, with network congestion continuing to plague operators worldwide, removing the need for duplicate streams from origin sites or content delivery networks (CDNs) is essential to controlling the cost of network infrastructure,
Deploying a comprehensive open cache solution to manage OTT, VOD and live streaming video in operator networks results in better preparation for the future of online video and ultimately delivers a high quality consumer viewing experience.
