ApplianSys today announced that GoranNet – the first ISP in Sulaymaniah, Kurdistan to offer ADSL – has purchased 4 additional CACHEBOX230 units to support its latest network upgrade. It is continuing to innovate in the local market to improve internet access and deliver customer satisfaction, at the same time reducing bandwidth usage.

According to ApplianSys Business Development Director Dave Gravell, “Gorannet was planning to upgrade connectivity to 1Gbps but were unhappy with the excessive ongoing support costs associated with the Bluecoat caches they were using. Newer Bluecoat boxes also proved very expensive to get the right level of performance so Gorannet searched out alternatives.¬† They identified the CACHEBOX230 as having the required performance but at a more sensible price.

Having purchased and deployed a single CACHEBOX230 web caching appliance in late 2010, traffic analysis confirmed good bandwidth saving.

“As WCCP was running on their Cisco equipment, it was easy to add further units for scalability and resilience and they subsequently purchased 4 more CACHEBOX230 units.”

After just a few weeks Goranet Network Manager Samir Alkadhumi was able to report “The units are performing very well, and we are very happy that the average daily gain is ranging from 25% to 30 %. Knock on wood!!”

GoranNet (www.gorannet.net) was established in 2004 and is a privately owned company, located in Sulaymaniah, Kurdistan, Iraq. It operates the largest wired broadband network in Kurdistan.
