The evidence is in:
Districts that cache get far better outcomes - and value - from bandwidth spend
To get better value from bandwidth provision, and to improve internet performance in the classroom, the FCC funds caching technologies under E-Rate Category 2.
ApplianSys has the only fit-for-purpose solution dedicated to schools web caching. It has been overwhelmingly the most selected option in E-rate's 'caching' category since this was added to the program.
School district technology leaders often question the benefit of caching. With hundreds of our devices now installed across 40 states, we are uniquely positioned to report on the actual outcomes where caching has been deployed.
The evidence is indisputable: bandwidth hogs are eliminated, congestion peaks are flattened and education content is much, much faster. By augmenting bandwidth investments with caching, districts can implement internet-enabled learning schemes cost-effectively, with confidence that their connection will cope with an ever-increasing demand for online content in the classroom.
