Cambridgeshire load reduced

July 15, 2008

ApplianSys today announced Cambridgeshire County Council is rolling out CACHEBOX appliances to schools throughout the county. The ICT team will manage its fleet of appliances using a CACHEBOX Central Management Console (CMC).

After a three college pilot programme, Cambridgeshire’s internal measurements showed CACHEBOX was reducing its bandwidth usage by a third. The pilot was extended to 24 more colleges in 2007, and today a further 236 units have been purchased for primary and secondary schools in the county.

“With a large number of rural schools and colleges spread across the county, it was essential that the ICT team would be able to manage the appliances remotely,” explains Mike Clark – CEO of ApplianSys. “The CMC lets them monitor and configure multiple units simultaneously, drastically reducing the time it takes to roll out changes and alleviating the burden on an already stretched team.”

Cambridgeshire Local Authority (www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk) provides education and skills training within the county of Cambridgeshire, supporting 2,400 teachers teaching over 77,000 children in 250 schools.
