ApplianSys announced today that the American School of Lima, Peru, has bought a CACHEBOX solution to speed up internet access for students and teachers.

The school has a 40Mbps upstream internet connection serving around 600 users at any one time. With large video files frequently being used for teaching in the classrooms, bandwidth was heavily strained.

The school’s Technical Director John Lakatos comments: “YouTube videos are a powerful learning tool that our teachers want to use in the classroom, but they take up a lot of bandwidth. As a result we were getting endless complaints about slow internet speed. We simply had to reduce the impact on our network.”

Having done some research online, John found that CACHEBOX210 offered an affordable, easy-to-use solution with a software edition that is specifically tailored for Schools.

CACHEBOX handles YouTube caching particularly well.  We don’t have to worry about our connection being bogged down because of heavy video files anymore. Now we can continue to encourage internet-based learning in our classrooms,” explains John.

The American School of Lima (www.amersol.edu.pe) founded in 1946 and located in Peru’s capital, Lima, is a private coeducational day school. It offers an educational program from pre-kindergarten through grade 12 for students of all nationalities. It is governed by a 12-member Board of Directors representing the Instituto Educacional Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
