Caching optimises your network by storing web content and serving it from your LAN. So you:
- Save bandwidth – typically 20-40%
- Deliver faster web access to your users
- Can monitor web usage
Whether they want to offer customers a faster, more reliable service, add more subscribers or keep costs down, many ISPs benefit from deploying web caches in their network – wherever they are and even if they have high bandwidth:
- For many users around the world, bandwidth is still scarce and expensive. Here web caches are the obvious answer. In simple cost savings alone, payback is rapid and return on investment very high.
- Others enjoy high capacity and relatively cheap bandwidth, yet that bandwidth is under continuous pressure to support even more bandwidth-intensive content – video, social media and software updates. Deploying caches in remote POPs and core networks to optimise distribution of HTTP content frees capacity for this additional and sometimes high priority traffic.
