MyRepublic Deploys Qwilt Caching Solution For OTT

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired) - Qwilt, a leading provider of online video delivery and open video caching solutions, announced today that MyRepublic, an ultra-fast Internet service provider in Singapore and New Zealand, has chosen Qwilt's award-winning open caching solution to help boost network capacity and improve the quality of over-the-top (OTT) video service delivery. Upon deploying Qwilt's open caching solution, MyRepublic was able to immediately reduce transit costs, efficiently deliver live streaming video traffic and significantly improve Quality of Experience (QoE).

"At MyRepublic, we want to redefine the consumer experience. One of our core values is to provide excellent quality streaming video as more OTT content is viewed by our end users," said Cedric Gouliardon, Head of Network and Systems at MyRepublic. "As consumption of high quality video-on-demand (VOD) continues to increase, particularly in impacted markets like China, we are looking for vendors who can quickly and easily scale with us. Qwilt's open caching solution was easy to implement and operate, resulting in immediate improvement in QoE for our customers."

Qwilt's solution analyzes traffic across operator networks in real-time to identify trending and popular content, and then caches and delivers it locally at the subscriber edge, in close proximity to consumers. By removing the need for duplicate streams from origin sites or content delivery networks (CDNs) across operator networks, delivery time is faster and network congestion is minimized for a flawless, high-quality consumer viewing experience. By deploying a comprehensive open caching solution to manage OTT, VOD and live streaming video in their networks, operators substantially increase savings on network infrastructure and operations, improve customer QoE and prepare their networks for the future of online video.

"The exponential growth of online video continues to plague operators worldwide with increased costs and significant traffic strain on their network," said Alon Maor, CEO and co-founder of Qwilt. "We are pleased to help MyRepublic deliver on their commitment to providing a seamless, high-quality viewing experience for their customers."

MyRepublic offers a full range of communication services in both business and residential markets. Purpose-built for the fastest Next Generation National Broadband Network (NBN), the company continues to redefine the standard of fiber broadband services in Singapore and the region. Over the next 12 months, MyRepublic will use Qwilt's solution to provide premium service to their customers and to expand into other markets in Southeast Asia.
