CACHEBOX a royal treat for Aga Khan

October 26, 2017

ApplianSys is pleased to announce that the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) has chosen a CACHEBOX solution to eliminate bandwidth issues and improve eLearning outcomes for its schools globally.

AKDN operates dozens of academies across the world, each at various stages of development. At each of these, eLearning content – like online videos and interactive media – is used to enhance student engagement.

However, for eLearning to be successful, content must be accessed quickly. But many academies don’t have the bandwidth capacity to support an increasing number of internet-enabled devices, such as iPads or Chromebooks.

  • Some of AKDN’s schools in Kyrgyzstan, Mozambique and Kenya, are at a disadvantage because of expensive internet connections – they can’t afford to upgrade
  • Others in India benefit from low cost bandwidth, but find that – even with higher capacity links – content is still too slow

Sanjeeb Mohanty, AKDN’s Global Head of IT, turned to caching to help resolve these bandwidth issues. He was delighted to discover a schools-focused caching solution that specifically handles eLearning content – CACHEBOX.

CACHEBOX solutions were purchased for academies in Kyrgyzstan, Mozambique, Kenya, and India – to deal with bandwidth issues and ensure students get fast and reliable access to eLearning content.

With CACHEBOX deployed, these schools will:

Eliminate bandwidth hogs such as large Apple and Microsoft software updates by storing them in the cache and served locally, freeing up available bandwidth

Give students fast access to content by delivering eLearning content locally at LAN speeds

“Wherever a school is located, or however cheap bandwidth is, CACHEBOX gives students fast access to content that the links alone never could,” explains ApplianSys Sales Executive Harminder Heer.
