The competition and traction on the transparent caching market increases (see "Qwilt Expects to Win AT&T and Comcast" - here - and note the comment made by readers). According to the vendor announcements and subject to their definition of Tier1 operator (and the scope of deployment in each) it seems that the market may be appealing also to larger operators.
PeerApp, the market leader with 27% market share [Frost & Sullivan, June 2013] announced that "..three global tier 1 network operators deployed the company’s award-winning UltraBand platform in the first half of 2013. PeerApp was chosen after extensive field trials in the operators’ LTE and fiber-to-the-home networks, against competing offerings. With UltraBand, these operators are able to accelerate delivery and improve quality of experience (QoE) by storing popular content closer to subscribers, Results from one tier 1 operator show an average of 70 Mbps throughput of video and data content delivery on their fiber-to-the-home network, a 700% performance increase .. The company added over 40 new customers in the first half of 2013. Its field-proven transparent caching solutions are now deployed with 350 network operators worldwide"
Other recent PeerApp deployments: MTN (Cyprus), Americable [Japan], CableMAX and Las Rosas Cablevision [Argentina], Life:) [Belarus], Telma [Madagascar].
