Nominum Launches Applications to Power In-browser Marketing and Communication Channel for CSPs
Feb 24 14
Nominum announced the launch of its N2 Applications for marketing and customer care. The suite comprises: N2 Care, for engaging with and retaining subscribers, N2 Engage, aimed at delivering safe and Internet experiences, and N2 Promote, for developing upsell and cross-sell opportunities. Marketing teams can deliver highly effective and measurable campaigns, while customer care teams can interact with customers via in-browser messaging. This innovation, an extension of Nominum's core N2 platform, leverages Internet Activity sourced from the DNS (Domain Name System), an underutilized resource that already exists at all CSPs. CSPs, including fixed, mobile and converged telecommunications operators, spend more than $150 billion annually in marketing and customer care. Traditional marketing channels - direct marketing, telemarketing, email, SMS, advertising - are expensive, with limited interactivity and measurability. In contrast, the in-browser messaging capabilities of Nominum's N2 applications enable CSPs to reach customers, at minimal cost, in real-time. Customers can interact with CSPs by responding to opt in in-browser notifications or offers. CSP marketing teams in turn receive comprehensive real-time metrics to enhance campaigns and deliver a more efficient marketing and communications channel. Mobile operators that deploy free public Wi-Fi to offload traffic from their networks can use N2 applications to increase ARPU through targeted offers and advertising via in-browser messages and videos to Wi-Fi customers.
Nominum, Inc. Launches Vantio CacheServe 5.4 Software
Jan 8 14
Nominum, Inc. has launched its Vantio CacheServe 5.4 software, which introduces rate limiting technology to allow communication service providers, or CSPs, to minimize the effect of DNS amplification attacks on network performance. Nominum's Vantio CacheServe 5.4 introduces precision policies which can be used to rate limit DNS traffic based on specific criteria, including by type of query, by client IP or response size. The release of the latest version of Vantio CacheServe follows the worldwide launch of Nominum's network security solution Vantio ThreatAvert last month. ThreatAvert combines the power of the Vantio CacheServe and its precision policies with the Global Intelligence Xchange (GIX) platform, a real-time database of malware threats, to provide a foundational security layer to protect CSPs from threats emanating from within networks. Vantio CacheServe DNS software has a proven track record of defending against multiple attacks including botnet related activities, malware exploits, DNS amplification, DoS /DDoS, and outbound spam. The latest version of the software includes upgrades allowing improved broadband subscriber experience during an attack by increasing bandwidth availability and decreasing the response time of DNS infrastructure; increased protection of server and bandwidth resources; and a reduction in the number of customers impacted by attacks, resulting in fewer complaints.
