Through that search for a global load balancing solution, we found Dyn," Telenor System Manager Hakon Smeplass said, adding that the ability to take data centers in and out of service without losing uptime was important. How Did Dyn Make A Difference? Telenor came on board in the summer of 2013, using both Dyn Managed DNS and Traffic Director, Dyn's advanced traffic management solution. They instantly began using the Geolocation Load Balancing feature within Traffic Director, giving them more granularity with directing CDN traffic. "We really like the granularity, and being able to differentiate between different countries and regions of the world. Dyn's competitors just offer eastern or western Europe or just America," he said. The Telenor CDN team did consider taking everything in-house, but as many companies are finding out, it made more sense to go with an outsourced DNS provider. "Sure, we have our own DNS services that we also continue to use in some ways, but as a CDN, we needed a more specialized service," Telenor Service Owner and Technical Manager for content delivery Kjartan Berge explained. "We could have done it ourselves, but we were looking for a partner that provided a global Anycast DNS network". Berge added that the three most important characteristics of moving to a managed DNS provider were usability, scalability, and manageability. "We quickly learned how to use the Dyn product, which was really important. We got it up and working quite easily, had a great experience with our trial account, and got a great feel early on for the product instead of just reading product documentation," he said. "Being able to do everything in the same system versus several subsystems is ideal," Smeplass added. With mobile subscriptions and revenues continuing to rise, Telenor Group's technology staff can be confident that their uptime and CDN traffic management needs are in good hands with Dyn.
