Improve streaming content delivery quality and reduce infrastructure scaling costs for your network

Streaming media traffic dominates your network during peak hours and, increasingly, all day long. Streaming growth consumes network capacity quickly and drives upgrades, and, if capacity does not keep up with demand, quality suffers. These conditions are made worse because you don’t have the control or visibility over content delivery to optimize infrastructure investments and service quality. Most content delivery comes via an increasingly fragmented number of over-the top providers, which requires you to invest in core and peering point capacity when the far better approach would be to deliver content from your network edge, closer to consumers. Today’s content delivery model will no longer scale. A new model is needed that will give you control and let you monetize delivery directly from content publishers.

Cisco and Qwilt have partnered to deliver full-stack, turn-key, managed content delivery solutions with carrier-grade infrastructure. The joint solution enables a new architecture and new business model for content delivery in which service provider-owned and -operated edge nodes are deeply embedded into last-mile networks. This new architecture means content delivery is optimized within the network, which improves quality and reduces scaling costs. The new business model means new revenue for service providers who collaborate directly with content publishers in the content delivery value chain.

This is the Cisco® Cloud Stack for Content Delivery. With it, service providers are leveraging the efficiency of an edge cloud architecture to handle the dramatic growth of streaming media across their networks. This solution also gives them greater control and visibility so they can respond faster and more intelligently to changing network conditions. This new solution for content delivery also enables new business models, customers, and revenue.

The current content delivery model no longer scales – a new model is needed

Current model results in suboptimal infrastructure, gaps in capacity, and poorer QoE
