Bluecoat announced recently that "new data collected from live deployments shows that Blue Coat® CacheFlow® 5000 appliances for carrier caching can dramatically improve user Web experience. This data demonstrates that CacheFlow appliances achieve, on average, ten times faster Web downloads for video and other Web 2.0 content, which can lead to dramatically improved customer satisfaction. Blue Coat has made testing tools available, so that customers evaluating the CacheFlow solution can test end-to-end response time in their own environment to quantify the user experience benefit."
"One mobile operator, Umniah in Jordan, with over two million subscribers, reported an overall browsing performance increase of 90 percent using CacheFlow appliances, resulting in a 95 percent decrease in customer complaints. A rural ISP, North-Eastern Pennsylvania Telephone Company, was able to add premium, high speed Internet access to its service offerings once it deployed the CacheFlow solution"
