[Infonetics]:"Over 50% of SPs plan to deploy transparent caching or CDNs"

A new report by Michael Howard (pictured), Infonetics Research’s co-founder and principal analyst for carrier networks, concludes that "The 3-headed monster of video, mobility, and the cloud is putting enormous pressure on operator networks, and throwing more routers at the problem isn’t the answer because traffic is rising much faster than equipment prices are falling"

"This is driving a fundamental shift in how IP edge networks are being architected, with carriers combining their fixed and mobile networks for operational efficiencies and using caching and content delivery networks (CDNs) to move frequently used content closer to the consumer, speeding up response times and greatly reducing the amount of traffic crossing the network”.

"Over 50% of service provider respondents plan to deploy transparent caching or CDNs by 2014".
