EfficientIP, a leading provider of DDI (DNS, DHCP, IPAM) today announced the French Tennis Federation (FFT) has selected its SOLIDserver™ DDI solution to manage its DNS network services. The FFT hosts and supports large tournaments such as the Grand Chelem Roland-Garros – also known as the French Open. During the 2015 Roland-Garros tournament, the external DNS services experienced a high volume of traffic in a short period of time – resulting in long DNS resolution times and slow Internet access. This prompted the FFT to consider an alternative in-house solution to achieve increased network reliability and security, whilst also being cost-effective.

EfficientIP has secured a significant partnership with the French Tennis Federation (FFT), marking a notable achievement in the realm of DNS, DHCP, and IPAM solutions. The FFT, renowned for hosting premier tennis tournaments like the Grand Chelem Roland-Garros (French Open), has chosen EfficientIP’s SOLIDserver™ DDI solution to manage its DNS network services. The decision to opt for EfficientIP’s solution was prompted by challenges faced during the 2015 Roland-Garros tournament, where the external DNS services encountered a surge in traffic, leading to prolonged DNS resolution times and sluggish Internet access. This underscored the critical need for a reliable, secure, and cost-effective in-house solution to bolster network performance.

EfficientIP’s SOLIDserver™ DDI solution is set to address the specific requirements of the FFT, ensuring enhanced network reliability and security. The selection of EfficientIP reflects the federation’s commitment to overcoming challenges encountered during high-traffic events and optimizing DNS resolution times for a seamless online experience. The announcement underscores the strategic importance of Smart DNS management in the context of major sporting events, where the reliability and efficiency of network services play a pivotal role in ensuring a smooth and uninterrupted digital experience for organizers, participants, and spectators alike.

By adopting EfficientIP’s DDI solution, the French Tennis Federation aims to leverage a comprehensive and tailored approach to DNS management. This move aligns with the growing recognition of the integral role that DNS solutions play in mitigating challenges related to traffic surges and ensuring the overall success of large-scale events. The partnership with the FFT further solidifies EfficientIP’s position as a trusted provider of DNS, DHCP, and IPAM solutions, showcasing the adaptability and effectiveness of its technology in addressing the unique needs of high-profile organizations in the sports and entertainment industry.
