Mediacom picks Qwilt for online video delivery
Mediacom Communications has deployed Qwilt’s online video delivery platform, which also included improved quality of experience (QoE) for its subscribers.
Founded in 2010 by industry veterans from Cisco and Juniper, Qwilt is backed by Accel Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, Marker and Redpoint Ventures.
"As a major cable operator, we need a cost-effective way to extend our network infrastructure, while improving the quality of viewing experience," said JR Walden, senior vice president of technology at Mediacom Communications Corporation. "We selected Qwilt for their innovative approach to online video delivery."
Qwilt CEO Alon Maor said his company was helping Mediacom create a network architecture that would scale for the future of online video, but didn’t provide any additional details.
Last month Mediacom Communications extended its four-year deal with Synacor, which included beefing up its web portal with more TV Everywhere services.
