Blue Coat Systems announced that "Citarella S.A. of Buenos Aires, Argentina, achieved two key milestones to improve its overall customer satisfaction: reduction of its bandwidth usage by 50 percent and immediately obtaining results of zero customer complaints after the installation of the Blue Coat® CacheFlow® 5000 appliance .. to support its “iplatense” Internet service, for a mix of residential and business subscribers who count on smooth video streaming and a fast, interactive Web 2.0 experience".
"YouTube traffic had grown to become 25 percent of all the ISP’s Internet traffic and Facebook had increased to 15 percent .. By efficiently and intelligently caching Web content to substantially reduce bandwidth consumption, the CacheFlow appliance can boost the quality of a subscriber’s Internet experience. CacheFlow also acts as a “shock absorber” for traffic spikes that occur when Web sites and content become popular over a very short period of time, such as during coverage of a major news, sporting or political event. In addition, CacheFlow appliances can provide protection from malware and unusual traffic as well as URL filtering to meet cultural and regulatory requirements."
