Smarty Ants smarter with CACHEBOX
ApplianSys announced today that Smarty Ants, one of USA’s most popular education content providers, has chosen CACHEBOX to help schools worldwide deliver a better digital learning experience to students.
Smarty Ants sells an award winning reading software program to schools in Asia, America and Europe. The company discovered that its customers were not able to get the most out of their software because of limitations with network infrastructure.
It has therefore bought multiple CACHEBOX units to provide caching solutions in combination with its product – starting with deployments in USA and Indonesia.
CACHEBOX Sales Director Roger Clark explains: “Schools all over the world are adding internet-based learning to their curriculum, as it is proving to be a very effective way of keeping young students engaged. A school can have limited available bandwidth whether it’s a remote school with narrow bandwidth full stop, or it’s in a metropolitan area with a much bigger internet pipe but it is a big content user and the pipe is full. In either case, caching can help.”
“Like many other education content providers we’ve worked with, Smarty Ants see real benefits of using caching in combination with its product: schools want to avoid delays in accessing content during class time and, particularly in schools with slow bandwidth links, CACHEBOX makes using Smarty Ants’ software more effective.”
Smarty Ants (www.smartyants.com) is a next-generation educational tool created through a close collaboration between Mike Wood, founder of the acclaimed LeapFrog educational games, and a world-renowned educational Advisory Board.

Smarty Ants Inc. has currently expanded its distributorship to Asia, America Latin countries, and Europe because of its fast moving growth.
