By storing and serving web content locally from your LAN, you can:

  • Save bandwidth - typically 20-40%
  • Deliver faster web access to your users
  • Monitor web usage

From schools that need fast online learning content in the classroom, to ISPs that want to spend less money on bandwidth whilst improving user experience, many organisations benefit from deploying web caches in their network.


The CACHEBOX range combines sophisticated high performance caching of modern web traffic with the security, reliability and ease-of-use of the appliance format. A highly-tuned cache engine uses clever algorithm profiles to respond automatically to content delivery changes made by specific websites - maximising caching.
