On Telecom, the Brazilian 4G TD-LTE broadband provider, has tapped Qwilt’s online video delivery and transparent caching solutions to help solve its over-the-top (OTT) video problem as it faces rapidly increasing network usage from streaming video from sites like Netflix, YouTube and others.

"The rising demand for OTT video continues to place increasing strain on operator networks worldwide. Many operators are looking to transparent video caching to address these OTT video challenges which includes the rising costs of international transit fees and QoE," said Alon Maor, CEO and co-founder of Qwilt. "Our solution meets the demanding price and performance expectations of a fast growing network operator like On Telecom. We look forward to working closely with them to continue improving their network utilisation and quality of experience."

Qwilt's Video Fabric Controller has been deployed by On Telecom to specifically to deliver large volumes of video traffic. It monitors video traffic across operator networks in real time to identify trending and popular titles, and then stores and delivers them locally at the subscriber edge, in close proximity to end users. Meanwhile, the QB-Series Online Video Classification Engine provides visibility into OTT video trends such as video bandwidth consumption, most popular sites and caching performance through Web-based analytics.

"After a rigorous evaluation process, we found that Qwilt's Video Fabric Solution has the best cost-benefit, as it can be easily deployed and will quickly scale in our rapidly growing network," said Fernando Secali, vice president of engineering and operations for On Telecom.
