SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Infoblox Inc., a developer of essential infrastructure for identity-driven networks (IDNs), today announced that San Francisco-based commercial architecture firm Gensler has selected and deployed Infoblox appliances for their voice over IP (VoIP) network. As a result of improved reliability and security, significant cost savings, a decrease in administrative overhead and streamlined operations, Infoblox appliances now supply nonstop IP address assignment via the DCHP protocol. The Infoblox solution also delivers centralized management and distribution of IP phone software and configuration files via the TFTP protocol for Gensler's VoIP network with more than 4,000 phone sets.

To date, seven Infoblox appliances have been deployed in Gensler's San Francisco headquarters as well as in Virginia, North Carolina, Southern California and Arizona offices. Infoblox-1200 appliances also are being deployed at the Company's disaster recovery site in Northern California. More than 25 Infoblox appliances are expected to be added to Gensler's expanding VoIP network by the end of 2006.

"The Infoblox solution provides a single unified infrastructure for keeping the system up to date and running nonstop," said Bruce Bartolf, principal and Chief Technical Officer at Gensler. "Once in place, we estimate that the Infoblox solutions will save up to 10 hours per week in operational resources. The Infoblox solutions are integrated and secure and the grid technology ensures that IP address changes are propagated in real time. The ability of the system to simplify the process of synchronizing firmware updates for our VoIP handsets is also a great feature and a major time saver."
