ETISALAT TO DEPLOY K-ROOT NAME SERVER
Owner of Afrique Telecom and Sudatel, Abu Dhabi incumbent Etisalat has announced another initiative, which will significantly improve Internet stability and performance within UAE as well as across the whole region. The Corporation has tied up with Amsterdam-based Réseaux IP Européens Network Coordination Centre (RIPE NCC) to deploy one of the core root name servers that support the World Wide Web. This has been deployed in the main Etisalat Internet Hub in Abu Dhabi. The K-root name server is the second mirror root server in addition to the F-root name server installed in the Etisalat Internet Hub in Dubai last year.
