The rising number of telecom operators providing caching solutions increased investments in the global transparent caching market. Higher expenditure in network infrastructure expansion in emerging economies promoted accessibility to broadband and demand for video related content, adding to transparent caching installations.
"As more premium content services enter the market, subscribers are demanding high-quality video to rival their television experience, which further propels the need for caching solutions that can negate the additional bandwidth required for higher bitrates," saidFrost & Sullivan Information and Communication Technologies Principal Analyst
Market growth quickens in the medium term when transparent caching is natively built into broader solutions. This creates a bigger ecosystem, offering faster, larger-scale deployment and more traction for the technology, which will no longer be thought of as a stand-alone offering in the market.
For now, however, the size of transparent caching technology deployments remains low as operators are yet to fully embrace the technology, owing to a lack of awareness. To minimize risks and potential end-user impact, operators follow an extremely conservative approach: implementing transparent caching in a small part of the network, evaluating its performance, closely examining costs, and measuring quality of experience. This lengthy validation process delays full-fledged purchases and consequently curbs market revenues.
