ApplianSys today announced that the Medical Research Council (MRC) is using both DNSBOX and CACHEBOX as part of a plan to upgrade its IT network in Uganda. The solution is supported by Computer Facilities, a local systems integrator.

MRC Uganda wanted to use its internet bandwidth more effectively because of the high cost of access in Uganda. Computer Facilities recommended moving to a new ISP and upgrading the network infrastructure. It incorporated DNSBOX, for faster local name resolution, and CACHEBOX, to optimize bandwidth use, as part of the proposal and predicts a reduction in load of up to 40%, with potential savings of $4-5000 per month on bandwidth charges.

“We chose ApplianSys because its products address the fundamental IT issues my customers face. They’ve made them user friendly, reliable, and backed them up with excellent support,” said Peter Atkin, ICT Consultant at Computer Facilities. “In my opinion, the support has been legendary. No problem was too small or too big. All got the same high level of professional service and attention.”

The MRC (www.mrc.ac.uk) is a publicly-funded organisation dedicated to improving human health. It supports research across the entire spectrum of medical sciences, in universities and hospitals. MRC’s Uganda office is part of its African division.

Computer Facilities (www.computer-facilities.com) is Uganda’s leading I.T. support company and has been providing IT services in East Africa since 1994.  It adopts a “Get IT Right” ethos and supports some of the most challenging network and power solutions in the country.
