As this is the most accepted entry point for doing master’s study in IITs and IISc most students looking for
quality higher education in India apply for this. So IISc Bangalore JAM administration committee wanted a
failsafe portal which can handle nearly 1 Lac unique visits per day during the closure of admission. Moreover,
they wanted a dynamic framework so any information can be updated in the site almost instantly. Huge number of
concurrent visitors was the biggest challenge for this project. The development time given was pretty less as
due to the Covid-19 hurdle the job came to us quite late.
Cygnus Advertising with its over two decades of experience in 360 communication solution services, undertook
the challenge. Our dedicated Web Solution Team handled the project successfully, in time and keeping all
technical parameters intact
Strong Framework To ensure quick development, fail safe concurrent visitors handling,
quick update of content, full responsiveness of the portal we have adapted the development platform as
under HTML5, CSS3 and Bootstrap Responsive framework for frontend
PHP, My-SQL, CodeIgniter MVC Framework for backend WCMS using custom developed WYSIWYG Editor for quick
DB-Connection pooling to handle huge concurrent visitors
Concurrent Development To fight the stiff delivery deadline the Graphics Design, HTML
Development, Responsiveness implementation, Database design and Backend coding all ran simultaneously.
Deployment We delivered the final Database and Code backup as ready to deploy package
and was seamlessly deployed in the Azure Cloud of IISc as per planned delivery schedule.
Maintenance Later whenever any change request came from IISc JAM Authority, that was
implemented in mostly < 30>
The Portal is running till today with 0 Downtime
Unique Visit till date 42,78,935 + (visit from same IP, same day is ignored)
Successfully handled heavy duty concurrent traffic load
We are glad to receive a letter of appreciation from the esteemed authority
