DUBLIN, IRELAND — May 24, 2011 — NetCracker Technology announced today that Swisscom has deepened its relationship with NetCracker in support of their strategic All-IP program. Currently NetCracker has deployed to production a comprehensive Fiber and IP Service Fulfillment solution from its Telecom Operations and Management portfolio.
The intensified relationship will continue to augment the solution and grow NetCracker’s footprint at Swisscom by delivering next-generation, converged, IP-based services. The All-IP program enhancement continues to execute on Swisscom’s strategy of decoupling and abstracting services from network connectivity and accelerating service creation and delivery with guaranteed levels of quality.
"Swisscom’s All-IP initiative is focused on launching convergent and innovative IP services on top of new fiber infrastructure," said Frederic Ranger, Head of IT Development. "NetCracker has become a partner to us due to their industry expertise, professional services capabilities, and market-leading software solutions. We require software and automation that enable us to reduce time to market for new products while ensuring that we deliver the highest service quality to our customers. NetCracker’s solutions and experience are helping Swisscom achieve these results."
"Swisscom’s All-IP program has built a foundation for market leadership," said Andrew Feinberg, President and CEO of NetCracker Technology. "We look forward to continuing our successful partnership in delivering Swisscom’s All-IP vision."
