Migration from Microsoft DNS & DHCP to Centralized Services

Elevating network performance and security, one migration at a time


Empowering enterprises: smarter networking for the future.

In a transformative journey, a large technology enterprise migrated from fragmented Microsoft DNS and DHCP servers to TCPWave's centralized services, tackling challenges of scalability, security, and management efficiency. This migration involved transitioning over 220 DNS zones and 300k users across various locations to TCPWave, streamlining administration and bolstering network performance. The shift not only enhanced security and scalability but also dramatically reduced management costs and improved compliance processes. This success story underscores the strategic advantage of TCPWave's centralized DNS and DHCP solutions for modern IT infrastructures.

Our client, a large Technology enterprise with a complex IT infrastructure, relied on disparate Microsoft DNS and DHCP servers for name resolution and IP address assignment. This siloed approach led to management challenges, limited scalability, and increased security risks. They sought a centralized solution for improved efficiency, scalability, and enhanced security.


A total of 220+ DNS Zones have been migrated to TCPWave with 300k users also getting migrated from Microsoft DHCP to TCPWave DHCP Services across all locations/office branches. TCPWave successfully migrated the client from Microsoft DNS and DHCP to our centralized DNS and DHCP services.
