ApplianSys DNSBOX systems are now used by many customers globally; by ISPs and registries such as Nominet in the UK, IT Service organisations such as IBM and Unisys, major government organisations such as NASA, and large corporations such as the Westpac bank. The DNSBOX Master and Slave appliances provide very robust, secure, reliable, and economic solutions for DNS, DHCP, and IP Address Management to any sites from the smallest to the largest with wide geographically dispersed requirements.

With the current move from IPv4 to IPv6 the UK Registry Nominet's engineers, after extensive selection tests, chose the DNSBOX for making IPv6 deployments easy, offering full support for DNSSEC and simplifying IP address management. The DNSBOX slaves include the most advanced secure technology for authoritative and recursive DNS responses most suitable for sites with the highest security requirements.

The ApplianSys CACHEBOX range provide performance caching/acceleration at outstanding value for money, with solutions for a wide range of web caching requirements such as:
  • Reducing bandwidth costs from fixed line or satellite connections
  • Accelerating web access in your school
  • Monitoring what employees are browsing online
  • Lightening the load on web servers with reverse caching

The ApplianSys VOIPBOX is a telecoms-grade VoIP optimisation solution which optimises the way data are transmitted over the network guaranteeing that VoIP data are transmitted without interruptions so reducing jitter. Larger data packets are broken into smaller pieces allowing VoIP traffic to be more efficiently slotted into the gaps. This results in more calls over current links as well as allowing bandwidth usage to increase up to 100% without the worry of VoIP jitter.
