CACHEBOX for NZ microwave

ApplianSys announced today that Taylor Communications, a New Zealand ISP using microwave, has purchased CACHEBOX to overcome a problem with big bandwidth consumers such as YouTube.

Taylor operates a high speed rural broadband network in the Hawke’s Bay area. With New Zealand being at the expensive end of the Southern Cross cable system, it faced high costs for upstream bandwidth. To ease the strain on upstream connections, the company has deployed CACHEBOX050, which serves cached content at high speed into their microwave network.

“It has made a huge improvement to the speed and responsiveness of websites such as Trade Me, Facebook and YouTube. This is especially noticeable now in the evenings during peak hours where customers don’t generally notice a drop in their surfing speed,” says Ray Taylor, Director of Taylor Communications. With CACHEBOX050 in place, he can offer his subscribers lower prices. “Taylor Communications feel that we have made the right choice in purchasing a CACHEBOX for our network, and will be adding more units to work in a cluster as our network grows,” summarises Ray.

Taylor Communications (www.taylorcommunications.co.nz) provides a range of broadband and telephone services using a rural microwave network offering faster and more cost effective service with better support compared to satellite or cellular solutions. The network covers over 150 square kilometres in various communities around Hawkes Bay. It also offers voice lines with voice over IP technology in urban areas.
