CACHEBOX Turkish d-Elite
ApplianSys is pleased to announce that the Elite International Academy in Istanbul has upgraded its CACHEBOX deployment to support more classrooms and a growing online curriculum with cost-effective, congestion-free e-learning.
With ambitions to achieve the highest learning standards in Turkey, the new Academy opened its doors in 2018 having already implemented a fibre network and online learning repository. But just months after its inauguration, internet traffic was already outstripping capacity – leaving students frustrated by lengthy delays.
Information Technology Coordinator Ahmed Desouki chose the most cost-effective route to ensure congestion-free access. With a CACHEBOX050 serving in-demand content locally, the browsing experience was dramatically improved. By effectively tripling available capacity, CACHEBOX was able to meet peak demand throughout the school day, enabling teachers to maximise internet use in the classroom.
Fast forward a couple of years and the Academy’s success has led student enrolment to more than double in size. Traffic growth has been significant, but CACHEBOX has been on-hand to boost capacity when needed.
The Academy has also been delighted by CACHEBOX’s Proctor Caching functionality. CACHEBOX regularly meets 75% of classroom demand for online test content, guaranteeing every student the same, reliable experience – leaving no student disadvantaged.
Now, anticipating continued student growth, the academy has chosen to upgrade its existing cache deployment. Supporting many more user numbers and their devices, its new CACHEBOX210 will further help Elite avoid unnecessary leaps in expensive bandwidth capacity.
“With so much demand for online content met locally, Elite’s students can instantly access the material they need – ensuring they remain highly engaged and focused,” says CACHEBOX Consultant Ilaria Mancinelli. “Thanks to CACHEBOX, the Academy has secured the premium online user experience it needs.”
Accredited by Advanc-ED and the Turkish Ministry of Education, Elite International Academy was inaugurated in 2018 in at Esenyurt, Istanbul with the goal of cultivating the best of Western and Eastern values in its students. The academy aims to offer the best educational community where technology, unique teaching methodologies, and social research drive its approach to education.
