Content delivery network provider solutions are a great way for companies to boost the performance of their websites and online content delivery. Whether they be software distributors or video sharing website, most companies with an online presence can benefit a huge amount from a well implemented content delivery network.
The latest company to leverage a content delivery network is Afrihost, South Africa’s leading internet services provider. They have selected Qwilt’s leading content delivery network to optimise video delivery and improve the quality of experience for customers using their services. Qwilt’s solutions analyse data being delivered across the network, allowing it to be delivered quickly and efficiently, avoiding congestion and removing the need for duplicate streams from origin servers.
Content Delivery Network Benefits
“There is a transformation underway, from broadcast television to Internet TV, that creates a strategic problem for network operators who must scale their networks cost effectively while improving streaming quality of experience,” said Alon Maor, CEO and co-founder of Qwilt. “We’re pleased to partner with Afrihost to improve the streaming experience for their customers in South Africa. With this deployment, we’ve extended the reach of our open caching solution to meet growing demand for online video services in South Africa.”
“At Afrihost, we are 100% committed to making sure our customers get great value and outstanding service,” said Brendan Armstrong, Chief Technology Officer at Afrihost. “As the number of OTT services in South Africa increases and the demand for content continues to grow, we chose Qwilt to improve the quality of our customer’s experience. By implementing Qwilt’s open caching solution, we were able to improve the quality of content delivery. The business outcomes are outstanding — both quality of experience and network scaling costs improve — a win-win for the Afrihost team and our customers.”
