REDWOOD CITY, CA – (Marketwired – May 16, 2016) – Nominum™, the DNS innovation leader and first company to leverage DNS to create an extensible platform and suite of integrated applications that accelerate digital transformation for communication service providers (CSPs), announced today that Kevin Lo, former General Manager of Google Fiber, has joined the company’s board of directors.
Bringing deep expertise in the telecom and broadband services industry, Lo joins Nominum at a time when global market adoption of the company’s N2™ platform and application suite is rapidly growing. N2 leverages Nominum’s innovative DNS software and unique data science assets to forge a clear path for CSPs to accelerate digital transformation with solutions that enhance their subscribers’ online experience.
“With respect to digital transformation, an interesting paradox has existed for CSPs,” said Gary Messiana, Nominum CEO. “Great demand was placed on their networks by over-the-top players, forcing them to focus their efforts on network infrastructure projects at the expense of their own digital offerings. Market demands forced them to enable this shift while they anxiously watched from the sidelines. Now, the tide has turned. The capacity and cost efficiencies that providers have built into their networks are allowing them to refocus and get in front of the digital transformation imperative. Kevin’s experience working at global scale as the co-founder of Google Fiber, and his deep understanding of the telecom industry, will be a tremendous asset to Nominum as we rapidly grow our N2 business to enable this shift and reverse the digital transformation paradox,” added Messiana.
“The next chapter of the Internet will be built on better services and experiences for subscribers. Nominum helps global telecoms to compete in this rapidly evolving world,” said Lo. “I’m excited to join Nominum’s board of directors and contribute to the success of a company that’s already a disruptive force in the telecom industry with deployments in over 40 countries.”
Lo is replacing Paul Mockapetris on the board. “We are extremely grateful to Paul for his contributions to Nominum over the years and wish him the best in his new pursuits. Looking forward, Kevin’s vast experience, including building out Google Fiber, is instrumental to our board as we fulfill worldwide demand for our N2 platform and application suite and add to our client list of more than 100 of the largest CSPs in over 40 countries,” said Messiana.
Lo co-founded Google Fiber, where he managed all day-to-day product and business operations, and executed a successful go-to-market strategy that contributed to the advancement of the U.S. telecom industry. Prior to that, he was COO and General Manager for M2Z Networks.
