A new partnership between Qwilt and Japan Internet Exchange (JPIX), one of Japan’s largest internet exchanges, has been sealed to improve the delivery capacity and quality of live streaming, video-on-demand (VoD) as well as media applications throughout the country, using the former’s open caching technology.
JPIX provides an environment for interconnection between Internet service providers (ISPs) and content providers across Japan, enabling optimisation of traffic between transit services and internet exchanges.
Qwilt’s Edge Cloud for Content Delivery solution will be deployed at the heart of JPIX’s exchange network, allowing service providers, including community access television (CATV), content delivery networks (CDNs) and content publishers, to leverage on Qwilt’s solution for content delivery.
Founded in 2010, Qwilt has joined the Open Caching movement and is a founding member of the Streaming Video Technology Alliance. The company aims to deliver connected experiences with its open architecture and inclusive business model, which have since improved local edge delivery by making content delivery more accessible to media companies, while enabling them to provide a higher Quality of Experience (QoE) to their audiences at a greater scale.
Airtel, BT, Telecom Argentina, Telecom Italica, TIM Brazil and Verizon are among some of the content publishers, cable companies and telcos that have deployed Qwilt’s Edge Cloud services.
