Internet usage has grown rapidly, with a growing number of consumers spending an increasing amount of time on the Internet. Internet surfing has also expanded well beyond navigating text-and-graphics pages to a multimedia experience, encompassing high-resolution images, music, rich media gaming and video. In particular, Internet video viewing is growing precipitously, with nearly 40 percent of consumers viewing it at least several times a month. Operators are feeling the strain on their networks today, but traffic growth trends are unlikely to lose momentum. Operators need to find solutions that don't require sustained investment in network upgrades and that don't put significant strain on their financial resources. One important bandwidth management strategy today is to deploy transparent edge caches to relieve network congestion and reduce transit costs.
