J:COM has 28 Qwilt Open Caching nodes in Japan and content publishers are already delivering content on the Qwilt platform. For example, on 9 April 2022, J:COM used the platform to deliver live streams of Japan’s middleweight unification boxing fight between Gennadiy Golovkin and Ryota Murata

Jiro Inoue, responsible for network operation at J:COM, said: “As demand for live video streaming increases, so too does our need to create a scalable network that equips us for the future of content delivery. Qwilt’s Open Edge Cloud solution significantly boosts our network capacity and accelerates our ability to deliver reliable, high-quality live and VoD streaming throughout Japan.”
