CACHEBOX the 1 for 1:1

ApplianSys announced today that Consolidated Community School District (CCSD) 89 in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, has bought a CACHEBOX solution to maximise bandwidth and improve internet browsing speed for its students.

CCSD has a 100Mbps internet link handling around 800 devices. With plans to introduce a 1:1 student-device scheme, the network will need to handle an additional 800 personal devices over the coming year.

Network Manager Jeff Romani was keen to find a simple caching solution that would allow the school’s existing network infrastructure to accommodate more devices without putting additional strain on the available bandwidth. He sought the advice of the IT Director at Glenbard High School who recommended CACHEBOX.

Jeff explains: “With a four-man technical team administering 6 buildings, simplicity and easy management were critical in choosing the right solution.
“A lot of student network traffic comes from video sites like YouTube, Discovery Education and mathletics.com. For our 1:1 scheme to work, the ability to cache video is hugely important – and CACHEBOX does this well.

“An added bonus is the interface – it’s remarkably easy to use. The reporting feature gives us a clear and effective overview of the type of network traffic we get and who’s looking and what. With CACHEBOX we know what kind of pattern to expect in future, as more devices are added to the network.”

Community Consolidated School District 89 (www.ccsd89.org) is a comprehensive pre-K-8 public school district serving students and residents from the southern portions of Glen Ellyn, Wheaton and Lombard, Illinois. District 89 is primarily a residential community of single family homes.
