Qwilt unveiled the ".. Qwilt Mobile Video Fabric, purpose built to address the unique challenges of over-the-top (OTT) video delivery for mobile service providers. Qwilt Mobile Video Fabric is a new software defined networking (SDN)-based open caching and acceleration suite, allowing mobile operators to improve the performance of their network while maximizing their current infrastructure investment.
..The network strain, which will only get worse, is already causing the quality of experience (QoE) for video viewing to suffer from issues such as radio access network (RAN) congestion, buffer bloat, latency and packet loss in both RAN and mobile backhaul.
.. the Mobile Video Fabric, enables dynamic caching of unmanaged and managed streams of video content on mobile networks. This open caching solution, which can be deployed either at a centralized (Gi/SGi) level or distributed (eNodeB) level, will extract the most value and capacity from existing mobile network infrastructure by improving network effective capacity by up to 35 percent. Powered by the SDN-based Qwilt QwOS™ software and enhanced with transmission control protocol (TCP) acceleration capabilities, the Qwilt Mobile Video Fabric reduces network latency, improves throughput and addresses complicated mobile video RAN and backhaul challenges such as packet loss and congestion".
