Nokia Siemens’ knock-out DNSBOX
ApplianSys announced today that Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN), one of the world’s largest network technology suppliers, has purchased a DNSBOX solution after a division of Motorola Network labs was sold to its Illinois branch.
Having acquired the division, NSN teams were working on its integration into the NSN environment. Under Motorola’s network, DNS and IPAM were done by the IT group. However, in the greenfield NSN environment, labs were required to be separate from office IT. NSN teams were therefore looking for an integrated environment for DNS and IPAM fit to these standards. To acquire a turnkey system for this core network service, the company decided to deploy a DNSBOX400 master and two DNSBOX200 slaves in its Illinois lab.
Systems Architect at NSN, Michael Moats, says, “Our teams researched various products. We found that either one of the two key ingredients – DNS and IPAM – were missing on other appliances, or those offering both were not affordable. Several of us concluded that DNSBOX was the best fit for our purposes for both criteria.”
DNSBOX Product Manager Magdalena Jovanovic says, “The DNSBOX master-slave setup is ideal for this greenfield project because it provides a single integrated shared system with visibility and control of DNS data. For NSN this means timesaving, the ability to delegate DNS administration and reduce dependency on skilled employees.”
