Wichita Falls bandwidth rises

August 30, 2011

ApplianSys today announced that Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas has purchased CACHEBOX to allow a satisfactory user experience accessing today’s bandwidth-hungry web materials.

Due to bandwidth intensive content such as YouTube and Facebook, Midwestern faced the problem of ever increasing numbers of requests. Having studied possible solutions, the university  soon decided that web caching was going to be vital in resolving the issue. As a result, Midwestern has deployed two CACHEBOX230 units clustered in a failover pair for redundancy.

Network Manager Jim Hall comments: “We counted on achieving smooth video streaming and a fast, interactive Web 2.0 experience within the university budget and we got what we wanted.  I am delighted with the video cache functionality and will be recommending that we purchase a pair of the larger units in the near future.” “CACHEBOX230 successfully stores larger files, such as internet video from Google, YouTube and others, resulting in the university achieving its target hit ratio of above 20%”, notes Roger Clark, Product Manager at ApplianSys.

The Midwestern State University (www.mwsu.edu) is a public liberal arts college in Wichita Falls, Texas, and a member of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges. Founded in 1922 as Wichita Falls Junior College, Midwestern is now a campus of 255 acres and 70 buildings that offers a wide variety of academic programs to 6,500 students.
