Telebras Selects Nominum's Vantio Intelligent DNS System

Nominum to Supply Caching and Authoritative DNS System for Brazil's National Broadband Plan

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 23, 2011) - Telebrás, the federal coordinator for Brazil's national broadband plan (PNBL), has awarded a contract to PromonLogicalis to supply Nominum's Vantio™ Intelligent DNS System to provide caching DNS services and ANS Premier™ authoritative DNS servers for the PNBL.

This system is being deployed by network operators worldwide and especially throughout Latin America where broadband Internet penetration is growing rapidly. More than simply an industry-proven scalable and reliable DNS system, Vantio allows operators to leverage their investment in DNS to improve the satisfaction, quality, and safety of their network for all users. Vantio's policy software modules MDR, NXR, and UAR and hosted network services SKYE™ Network Protection Service and NavAssist™ are providing network-wide benefits including protecting users from becoming infected with malware and the propagation of botnets, helping them reach their intended destinations more quickly and better informed, and isolating PCs infected with viruses from draining network resources. The activity from each of these systems is processed and presented in an actionable manner through iView™, Nominum's network intelligence service.

"As we experience the explosive growth of Internet traffic in Latin America, network operators have realized the value of the DNS infrastructure for much more than simple query handling. They are proactively specifying systems that provide far more flexibility, insight, and end-user benefits. The PNBL is an ambitious undertaking, and Nominum is proud to have been selected as the supplier for this critical component ensuring a safer more enjoyable Internet experience for the people of Brazil," said Pete Wisowaty, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Sales at Nominum.

Under the PNBL Telebrás plans to connect 1,163 previously unserved municipalities with broadband services in 2011 and 4,283 municipalities by 2014.
