CACHEBOX goodness for Mercy
ApplianSys announced today that Mercy High School in Burlingame, California has purchased CACHEBOX to improve internet browsing for its students.
The school’s existing 5Mbps connection made internet access problematic for its five hundred pupils, each using a wireless device such as an iPad. The school looked at caching to speed up internet access time efficiently and cost-effectively and found a CACHEBOX210 was the solution it was looking for.
IT Director Keneth Johnson says, “Initially I was thinking about building a cache box utilizing Squid, but I started weighing the time it would take to set up and configure. ApplianSys quickly understood our initial needs and CACHEBOX210 has offered great value for money with superb performance. The results have been astonishing and our students now have a much faster internet access, which makes my job so much easier!”
