Hamilton Township cuts traffic

ApplianSys today announced Hamilton Township Public Schools has chosen CACHEBOX as its preferred solution for delivering content caching across the district.  The devices will help save money by reducing WAN traffic to its ISP.

As teachers incorporate more online content into lessons the demand for access to ‘rich media’ can overwhelm bandwidth available to schools.  Rather than resorting to purchasing more bandwidth CACHEBOX is helping authorities such as Hamilton make better use of existing connections.  With teacher-friendly features such as ‘pre-loading’ built in, content can be downloaded before lessons begin.  Teachers and pupils using this content access it from the LAN and so avoid generating new traffic to the internet.

“After many years addressing the caching needs of schools throughout the UK, we’re delighted that CACHEBOX is now proving equally relevant to education authorities in the United States,” comments Steven Tee – CACHEBOX Product Manager.

In addition to the CACHEBOXes, Hamilton also purchased DNSBOX to simplify its DNS management.

The Hamilton Township Public Schools (www.hamilton.k12.nj.us) are a comprehensive community public school district, serving students in kindergarten through twelfth grade from Hamilton Township, in Mercer County, New Jersey, United States.  The district consists of seventeen K-5 elementary schools, three middle schools serving grades 6-8, and three high schools serving grades 9-12 schools in the district.
