CACHEBOX made for success in Miami

Appliansys today announced that Miami-Dade County Public Schools, the fourth largest school district in the United States, has bought 220 CACHEBOX050s to ease difficulties with limited bandwidth at elementary schools across the district. In addition, a CACHEBOXCMC will be installed to streamline the deployment and management of this large fleet of appliances.

Schools in Miami-Dade have 3-10Mbps connections, which in recent years have struggled to support increasing demand for bandwidth intensive resources such as YouTube, and interactive services from Pearson Education.

During extensive classroom trials, 97% of the educational content was delivered from the CACHEBOX – just 3% fetched from the internet – making browser performance highly responsive.

CACHEBOX Central Management Console (CACHEBOXCMC) radically simplifies the deployment and management of large, distributed caching solutions. “With the CACHEBOXCMC there is no need to send anyone on-site to deploy or support the solution, someone at each school just needs to plug CACHEBOX in to power and the internet,” commented Roger Clark, Head of CACHEBOX Sales at ApplianSys. “Tasks like initial configuration are performed once on the CMC and rolled-out to the connected CACHEBOXes in a single click. So Miami-Dade now has a caching solution that is economically viable and sustainable in the long-term.”

Located at the southern end of the Florida peninsula, Miami Dade school district (www.dadeschools.net) stretches over 2,000 square miles and comprises nearly 400 schools with 350,000 students and 40,000 employees.
