Transparent caching stores the most popular and frequently accessed internet content within the network service provider’s network, bringing it closer to the subscriber, thus improving the subscriber Quality of Experience (QoE). By eliminating the recurring internet traffic on Wide Area Network (WAN) links and overburdened web servers, it provides significant benefits to Internet Service Providers (ISPs), enterprise networks, and end-users. This enables network service providers to deliver videos, music, games, and other Over-the-Top (OTT) contents quickly to the local subscriber rather than fetching contents across long distances and network borders. It is embedded in the network and controlled by the network operator. Most of the transparent caching solutions have characteristics, such as they automatically cache the frequently requested content, transparent to the subscriber and content owner, and they do not impact any network application or service logic after deployment. _______________ 1.
