CACHEBOX cracks Caracas bandwidth

June 09, 2012

ApplianSys announced today that Satelca, one of the leading telecommunication service providers in Venezuela, has purchased CACHEBOX in order to save bandwidth and improve internet speed for its customers.

Satelca’s ISP operation caters to approximately 1,000 corporate users. It has 45Mbps of bandwidth, with peak traffic running at 40Mbps. So it looked for a caching appliance to lower this peak and achieve at least 30% savings. And it wanted transparent deployment to avoid any need for configuration by its customers. It decided a CACHEBOX210 would meet these objectives.

CACHEBOX Head of Sales Roger Clark says, “We’ve seen that in countries like Venezuela, there is a growing demand for caching appliances because the cost of international bandwidth is very expensive. CACHEBOX is especially beneficial to companies like Satelca because it optimises bandwidth consumption by effectively lowering peaks and increasing savings. It’s also flexible in supporting different types of deployment and is easy to configure.”

Satelca is a broad network and telecoms service provider based in Caracas, Venezuela. It also has an office in Barcelona. The company provides enterprise telecommunication services, integrated security, private networks and IT, with technology partners including Motorola, Cisco and Digitel, among others.
