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."
"The test results further validate our 5x performance advantage, and prove that our product is uniquely positioned to help network operators solve an increasingly growing problem of online video, achieve substantial OPEX and CAPEX savings, and deliver optimal QoE to their subscribers," said Alon Maor, CEO and Co-founder of Qwilt. "We engineered our product exclusively for carrier-grade performance and scalability, and strongly believe that the unprecedented performance advantage, unified key functionality, and seamless out-of-band deployment, make the QB-Series an ideal candidate for operators of all sizes searching for transparent video caching solutions."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
