CACHEBOX a Kentucky winner

February 25, 2012

ApplianSys announced today that Hancock County Schools in Lewisport, Kentucky, bought a CACHEBOX solution in order to provide faster internet to its students and cater for growing internet traffic.

The school has about 2000 users on five sites. These are connected on a 100MB fibre link, coming to a district hub at its high school and then going through an ISA server. It wanted to replace this with an affordable appliance acting as proxy server to get more out of its existing bandwidth. Further, it introduced a 1:1 iPad program due to which traffic has tripled. Hancock decided CACHEBOX230 was the answer.

CACHEBOX Head of Sales Roger Clark comments, “Like many schools in USA, Hancock County has a growing demand for bandwidth intensive content, such as YouTube. This goes hand in hand with the increasing trend of 1:1 computer-pupil programs which encourage students to develop their own independent learning techniques.

CACHEBOX230 is ideal because it can provide the school with room to grow and easily handle the extra load of new devices joining the network. It can even add further resilience to its existing network by adding another unit.”

Hancock County High School (www.hancock.k12.ky.us) is located in Lewisport, Kentucky, and caters for pupils in 9th grade and higher. It is one of the five schools in the Hancock County Schools District in Georgia, USA. The district also has two elementary schools, a pre-school and one middle school.
