Lebanon Online deploys Blue Coat CacheFlow appliance to reduce bandwidth costs

Blue Coat Systems announced that internet service
provider Lebanon Online S.A.R.L. has deployed the Blue Coat CacheFlow 5000

The newly installed platform enables Lebanon Online to
reduce operational expenses by cutting bandwidth spend, manage sizeable
increases in network traffic and subscriber growth, enhance Web security and
optimize and enhance the delivery of rich Web 2.0 content, large files and
video. Lebanon Online expects the return on its investment in CacheFlow
appliances to be less than six months, based upon bandwidth savings alone.

Lebanon Online is also formulating a value-added services
strategy where it can provide additional, potentially chargeable services to
its customers, including parental controls and a ‘clean Internet’ security
service to further leverage the capabilities of Blue Coat solutions.

With prohibitively high bandwidth costs in the region
and limited capacity to meet our user demands, the CacheFlow appliance is the
best solution to reduce infrastructure costs by reducing  bandwidth
consumption,” said Hussein Turkieh, company engineer and IT Manager, Lebanon

appliances alleviate the bind that service providers face: scaling to serve
explosive customer demand for rich Web 2.0 media, especially video content,
while containing costs and meeting high end-user expectations for a fast and
interactive Web experience.

Through the use of next-generation content caching
technologies, including the Blue Coat CachePulse cloud service, CacheFlow
appliances efficiently cache and serve Web content to provide significant,
sustained bandwidth savings. CacheFlow appliances allow ISPs, such as Lebanon
Online, to significantly reduce bandwidth consumption, while improving the Web
experience which results in happier, more loyal subscribers and greater
competitive differentiation.

The CacheFlow 5000 appliance builds on our expertise in
delivering Web content and applications effectively and securely,” said Darrell
Long, general manager and vice president of the CacheFlow Business Unit, Blue
Coat Systems. 

It represents a significant leap forward in addressing
the bandwidth challenges facing service providers. Our breakthrough caching
technology addresses the monumental challenges service providers face in
meeting fiercely growing demand for video and Web 2.0 content from mobile and
fixed users,” Long added.
