Link Net taps Cisco, Qwilt to boost streaming services in Indonesia
The partnership will enhance streaming video quality for millions of households across Indonesia.
Indonesian internet and cable service provider Link Net (PT Link Net Tbk) has partnered with Qwilt and Cisco to deploy their Content Delivery Network (CDN) solution, elevating the quality and delivery capacity of its streaming applications to the country.
Link Net, which operates the First Media brand in Indonesia, will embed Qwilt’s Open Caching-based architecture into its network edge, supporting increased data volumes across its network and further improving streaming experiences for subscribers.
The partnership enables Link Net to enhance its content delivery infrastructure and provides open API (Application Programming Interface) to content publishers seeking to ensure the delivery of their content in the highest quality.
The deployment will initially reach 27 cities in Indonesia and is expected to enhance the quality of streaming video for 3 million households across the archipelago.
PT Link Net Tbk President Director and CEO Marlo Budiman said deploying Qwilt’s Open Edge solution “propels us on our roadmap to create an open network that benefits our customers across Indonesia.”
“We have already partnered with several content publishers, including OTT streaming platforms. We will continue to develop and expand these partnerships through the use of our CDN solution. By partnering with content publishers, we can help to address the soaring demands for live streaming, video-on-demand, and application services and ensure the delivery of a consistently superior quality of experience,” he said.
Qwilt and Cisco have been working with service providers to create the world’s largest federated CDN which benefits content publishers, service providers, and consumers globally. At least 150 service providers have already partnered with Qwilt to enable the open edge in their networks, serving over one billion unique subscribers globally.
Theodore Tzevelekis, Cisco Networking Vice President, reiterated their commitment to enable exceptional digital experiences for every Link Net customer through its innovative platform.
Qwilt CEO and Co-Founder Alon Maor said Link Net is enabling the next generation of content experiences across Indonesia and immediately taking an active role in the content delivery value chain while expanding monetization opportunities for content delivery.
