Wallis and Futuna pacified

ApplianSys announced today that Broadband Pacifique, a small ISP based in the French-owned Wallis and Futuna Islands in the South Pacific- has bought CACHEBOX to improve internet performance for its customers.

Broadband Pacifique provides internet services to around 100 customers over a 1.5Mbps connection. It has been using an open-source caching server, but its customers experience slow speeds. To fix this, the company has selected CACHEBOX100 to replace the existing server.

Head of CACHEBOX Sales Roger Clark comments “There are many ISPs like Broadband Pacifique, that struggle to provide good services to customers because they are located on remote islands where bandwidth is limited and expensive. They rely on caching solutions to save bandwidth.

“Using an open source caching solution is difficult and time consuming. With CACHEBOX, Broadband Pacifique will benefit from optimised caching, faster performance and simple management. This will result in enhanced user experience.”

Broadband Pacifique is a small ISP based in Wallis and Futuna, an overseas territory of France consisting of two small island groupings in Polynesia, near Fiji and Samoa in the South Pacific. The community is spread across 264 square kilometres with a population of about 15,000. It is made up of three main volcanic tropical islands with a number of tiny islets, and is split into two island groups: Wallis Islands in the northeast and the Futuna Islands in the southwest.
