In February 2015, NetCracker and NEC launched a new initiative to address the opportunities associated with SDN and NFV for service providers. This joint initiative creates a new global business brand and structure, bringing together the best of NEC’s network innovation and NetCracker’s IT leadership and telecom expertise to deliver comprehensive end-to-end SDN/NFV solutions in a multi-domain environment.
The network remains one of the most valuable and expensive assets for any service provider. In a converged world, with multiple networks the complexity of Network Management can create significant cost and efficiency challenges. Adding home network, complex end-user devices, and IT platforms to the mix only compounds the problem. Customer expectations are also changing, and as customers become more sophisticated, they are demanding a much higher service experience, expecting no downtime and instant response for all their interactions. This requires much more sophisticated and integrated management systems than before, systems that are capable of understanding complex networks and services, and monitoring and managing them in real time. Network and element management systems that work directly with the network need to provide much more data and functionality as well as modern integration interfaces. All of this requires a new generation of network management and network assurance systems.
