REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Nominum, the leading provider of IP address infrastructure solutions, today announced that THUS has selected Nominum's carrier grade DNS software to increase the robustness and responsiveness of its network.

THUS is one of the UK's leading network operators, providing voice, data and internet services to corporate and SME markets through its THUS and Demon brands. THUS selected Nominum's Foundation Caching Name Server (CNS) to handle its growing DNS traffic, driven by subscriber growth and the delivery of new services such as telephony over the Internet.

"As subscribers migrate to converged services we recognise that there will be growing pressure on our network to cope with increasing amounts of DNS traffic. We selected Nominum's Foundation Caching Name Server because of its ability to rapidly handle DNS requests," said Alex Kiernan, Principal Engineer, THUS plc, "Nominum's superior performance capabilities, allow us to significantly reduce our CPU utilisation, providing us with valuable overhead capacity."

"The speed with which the software was deployed, coupled with the immediate business impact, has validated our decision to replace open source with a commercial DNS solution. Further to this, as we continue to grow our subscriber base, Nominum will continue to play an important role in allowing us to scale our network without impacting service quality and reliability while keeping complexity under control," Alex continued.

"As forward thinking network operators such as THUS continue to take high quality converged services to market, there is a growing recognition of the critical role DNS plays in the delivery of all internet-based services," said Abe Ayat, VP worldwide sales & channels, Nominum. "We look forward to continuing our relationship with THUS, as we work together to meet their network naming and addressing infrastructure needs."
