Deutsche Telekom Launches Advanced DNS Service
Bonn, Germany, March 19, 2015 – International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS), the international wholesale arm of Deutsche Telekom, today announced the launch of a new Domain Name System (DNS) service called ICSS Route. ICSS designed ICSS Route to safeguard the availability and performance of websites.
ICSS Route is based on a truly global DNS network and intelligent routing capabilities, which ensure fast response times, low latency and reliable access from anywhere in the world. Plus, it is completely resilient against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
ICSS Route also incorporates monitoring of server performance, availability and traffic management. As ICSS Route is authoritative-only, it does not operate in the recursive mode and is therefore immune to cache poisoning attacks and other risks. The fully RFC compliant solution can be run as either a managed or secondary DNS service and is available via a set of public APIs or over the ICSS CDN Web portal.
Stephan Schröder, Vice President Internet & Content at ICSS said, “ICSS Route was built to cope with all the problems other systems can’t handle. It is a dedicated, enterprise-grade platform with extremely high performance, availability and security. Because it’s scalable and requires no up-front investment, it is also very cost-effective.”
Good DNS management is an essential factor for every business with an online presence. Today, many companies still work with insecure infrastructures or older DNS technologies that did not foresee the requirements of modern business challenges. When DNS service fails, servers cannot be found, e-mails are not sent, site speed becomes dramatically slow or – in the worst case – the website is completely shut down. The result is a loss of revenue, irritated users and brand damage.
ICSS has simultaneously launched a new dedicated website for its content delivery services. Under http://www.cdn.telekom-icss.com, ICSS presents its extensive portfolio with accompanying information as downloads.
