Qwilt to Deploy Their Edge Cache Software and Cloud Services Across Cirion in LATAM
Qwilt has announced a deal with Cirion Technologies to deploy Qwilt’s edge cache software and cloud services across Lumen’s former CDN footprint in LATAM. In 2022, Lumen sold its LATAM infrastructure (network, peering, hardware) to Cirion, one of the few Pan-Latin American networks operating one of Latin America’s most interconnected data center platforms, with 18 owned data centers. Their long haul and metro networks comprise 31,000 miles and over 22,000 miles of subsea network, with 13 Tbps of total CDN capacity.
With this partnership, Qwilt gets full LATAM CDN coverage through the Cirion infrastructure and peering in the region. Cirion gets Qwilt CDN tech and access to their SP-embedded edge deployments throughout LATAM. Qwilt will run this CDN service and jointly sell with Cirion, expanding Cirion’s footprint and CDN services in the region. Neither company is disclosing how much total capacity Qwilt will build across Cirion’s network, but we should expect to get more details as their edge services start to roll out this year.
