Nominum Chairman and Chief Scientist to Speak at TMC INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO Fall 2005

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Nominum Inc., today announced that Paul Mockapetris, chairman and chief scientist, will present a session at this year's INTERNET TELEPHONY(R) Conference & EXPO FALL 2005 on October 24, 2005. Mockapetris' presentation will provide insight into the existing problems of DNS architecture and how this impacts VoIP deployment. The conference and EXPO runs from October 24-27, 2005, and is being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

ENUM weds traditional phone numbers and the Internet for VoIP, under the ENUM standard, which allows VoIP to use the DNS for signaling. However, today's DNS technology suffers from scalability and privacy issues, and raises questions about the lengthy DNS names of ENUM that work poorly when run on DNS servers tuned for short names. Mockapetris will provide insight on how to overcome these issues, so carriers are best prepared for current and future implementations.
"DNS is clearly instrumental in moving internet telephony forward, but carriers need to be aware of the significant adjustments that need to be made in order to ensure safe, scalable deployment," said Paul Mockapetris, chairman and chief scientist. "I look forward to sharing Nominum's perspective on solutions to aid the aging DNS architecture at the INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & Expo later this month."
"We are very pleased that Paul Mockapetris will be participating in this year's show. Paul's work is widely recognized and Nominum is highly respected as a leader in IP address management. I am confident that our attendees will appreciate and value the opportunity to hear his perspective on the topic," said TMC president and conference co-chair, Rich Tehrani. "Over the past twelve months, widespread adoption of VoIP by global service providers, businesses and governments has reinforced that this exciting technology is a viable, cost-effective communications solution. As a result, we are seeing a significant increase in the number of senior-level executives attending INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO as a means of learning about the technology so they too can take advantage of its benefits."
The INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO is the world's largest and most widely-attended VoIP tradeshow. Last February, the show drew over 6,200 buyers and sellers of VoIP products and services to Miami. For the upcoming October 2005 show, TMC projects total attendance to exceed 7,500.
Paul Mockapetris' session takes place on October 24, 3:00-3:45 p.m. at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Registration for the show is now open. Anyone interested may register by visiting Nominum will be exhibiting in booth #440.

Featured Whitepapers

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
