How NTC reduce its cost with the installation of google cache server?
Recently Google installed it’s cache server in Nepal at Internet Exchange Point of Nepal telecom (NTC).
NTC is the only and biggest internet service provider in Nepal. It has certain bandwidth limit which NTC have to pay. Let say for example NTC bought 500MBPS internet bandwidth, that means NTC has maximum capacity of 500MBPS to transfer data at a time. It gives services to its customers by dividing the internet bandwidth of 500MBps , let say for 1000 customers if it divide equally, it would be (5000/1000)=500Kbps for each customer.
If all the 1000 customers excess the internet at a time using its full capacity of 500kbps, then the maximum (1000*500kbps=500MBps) capacity of the NTC will be used up. If there are more customer added let say 100 more customer, total will be 1100, if they excess the the internet same time they can’t get full bandwidth what they have of (500kbps) so its divided as (500MBps/1100) = 363.64kbps per customer.
Google Inc installed the Google cache server in Nepal at NTC office Jawalakhel Internet Exchange Point, operated by Nepal Telecom(NTC).
A Google cache server is a dedicated network server that saves Web pages or other Internet content locally. By placing previously requested information in temporary storage, or cache, a cache server both speeds up access to data and reduces demand on an enterprise’s bandwidth.
With the installation of google cache server the services provided by Google will be faster than before. Google services such as Gmail, Youtube etc will now be accessed faster from Nepal. This will also help NTC by reducing its bandwidth access and reduce its cost.
“After the installation of Google server, Internet bandwidth uses of NTC has been decreased” Said NTC representatives.
