REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Qwilt, a leading provider of transparent caching and video delivery solutions, today announced that The Tolly Group has certified the performance benchmarks of its QB-100 platform, which successfully classified 20Gbps and delivered 10Gbps of sustained high quality video traffic.

The Tolly Group, a provider of information technology research and product evaluations, was commissioned by Qwilt to test the performance capabilities of its QB-100 platform by recreating the rigorous network conditions commonly seen in a service provider network. The Tolly Group engineers used an Ixia BreakingPoint Systems Storm™ to simulate a high volume of various types of network traffic, while concurrently emulating multiple clients requesting video stream downloads.

Tolly's engineers developed a three-step testing process to benchmark the performance of network traffic classification and video delivery functions. Test results demonstrated that the QB-100 successfully achieved previously unprecedented performance benchmarks:

  • Accurately classified 20Gbps of network traffic
  • Delivered 10Gbps of sustained high quality video traffic, including both ABR and progressive download types of video files
  • Concurrently classified 20Gbps and delivered 5Gbps of cached video traffic
  • The QB-Series CPU load remained below 65% throughout the testing process

"Our testing demonstrates that Qwilt's QB-Series 2RU platform is capable of simultaneously classifying and delivering high volumes of video traffic typical of peak consumption periods in a high performance service provider network," said Kevin Tolly, founder of The Tolly Group. "As video traffic continues to grow and dominate carrier networks worldwide, Qwilt's QB-Series helps operators offload large volumes of OTT video traffic to maintain a robust network environment and prepare their networks for the future of online video."
