Nominum to Support Network Operators in Advance of World IPv6 Day on June 8, 2011

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - Nominum, the worldwide leader in Intelligent DNS systems for network operators, today announced its IPv6 Readiness Program whereby new and existing service provider, government, and enterprise customers gain access to Nominum software, services, and expertise to test IPv6 support in their networks surrounding World IPv6 Day on June 8, 2011.

World IPv6 Day, being led by the Internet Society (ISOC), is the day when major Internet content publishers will offer their web content via IPv6 addresses with the intention of highlighting IPv6 readiness throughout the Internet from content providers, to networks, to clients. Highlighting the rapid growth in Internet services and access devices, especially in the mobile space, the addition of new IP addresses also indicates the significant influence the Internet will have on the world for years to come.

In support of World IPv6 Day, Nominum's corporate website www.nominum.com is now available to IPv6 enabled clients.

For testing purposes the IPv6 Readiness Program provides network operators worldwide with access to the suite of Nominum's fully IPv6 compliant Vantio™ Intelligent DNS System and ANS Premier™ for caching and authoritative DNS software as well as the Dynamic Configuration Server for DHCP software. Implementation of the software system will be supported by access to Nominum's technical support team. Testing of the operator's implementation will be assisted by access to Nominum's IPv6 test protocols. All of these software and support services are provided free of charge under the terms of the IPv6 Readiness Program.

"As a company we are dedicated to advancing the state of the Internet both for consumers and our customers, and IPv6 is a major step in that direction. By giving network owners of all types access to our software and expertise we hope to improve understanding of the steps remaining to complete IPv6 support across the Internet," said Gopala Tumuluri, Nominum's Chief Technology Officer.
