Video delivery accounts for much of today’s internet bandwidth. As services such as YouTube and Netflix go from success to success, with the latter recently surpassing 50 million subscribers, the pressure on content providers to boost their video delivery services with content acceleration technologies becomes ever greater. Thankfully for content creators and organisations that specialise in offering high definition video services online, video delivery acceleration services are in rich supply, providing many options for those looking to boost their video performance. One such company is Qwilt, and they have seen extraordinary growth in North America over the past 12 months.
Qwilt specialise in offering transparent video caching and delivery platforms, increasing capacity and improving the end user experience. They have seen their customer base increase 400% over the past 12 months, with many high profile North American cable system operators choosing them to boost the performance of their video delivery offerings. These operators include both regional and national operators looking to leverage Qwilt’s open caching architecture.
