CACHEBOX for Webb-based lessons

August 12, 2013

ApplianSys is pleased to announce that Webb City R7 School District in Missouri has purchased a CACHEBOX310 to improve internet browsing speeds following the launch of a 1:1 student-to-device scheme.

Even before the launch of its 1:1 scheme, bandwidth at Webb City was frequently saturated, making internet access sluggish. With 1:1 set to double the number of devices on the network, the District decided to upgrade its connection from 100Mbps to 250Mbps.

Upgrading bandwidth helped Webb City keep pace with the addition of devices, but still left the problem of slow access at peak times such as the start of lessons or during Operating System updates. The school turned to CACHEBOX to help deal with these issues.

Having deployed CACHEBOX310, Tim White, Technology Director at Webb City now lists it as one of the key tools that he wouldn’t launch a 1:1 scheme without: “CACHEBOX makes our 250MB connection feel like 750MB+” he says. “It saves us 100-600GB per day. Without it YouTube brings our network to a crawl or gets traffic shaped to oblivion.”

“Technology has an ever-growing role in the classroom,” comments Roger Clark, ApplianSys Head of CACHEBOX Sales. “When lessons are planned around online content, being unable to access it is hugely disruptive for teachers and students. CACHEBOX helps schools protect their investment in student devices by ensuring a reliable connection to the internet.”

Webb City R7 School District (http://www.wcr7.org/), Missouri provides education for over 4,300 students at 11 schools from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.
