“Streaming video continues to grow and has become an unstoppable force of nature,” Inzerillo said, in a statement. “ Alon [Maor, Qwilt’s CEO] and I share a common vision to define and enable the new architecture for streaming which relies more on the reach, scale and quality of Internet service provider network infrastructure for content and application delivery. This new architecture, the Edge Cloud in service provider networks, is essential to the long-term scaling of content and application delivery.”
