NEC/Netcracker's Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) Platform Recognized for Helping Operators Monetize Value-Added Services

The Hague, Netherlands — October 12, 2017 — 

NEC Corporation and Netcracker Technology announced today that they have received the 2017 Network Transformation Award for "Best NaaS Platform" at this year's SDN NFV World Congress event. NEC/Netcracker's NaaS solution was selected for its outstanding ability to support service providers on the path toward virtualization—enabling them to increase revenue and improve time-to-market for new services.

NEC/Netcracker NaaS provides three important market differentiators, including:

  • Delivering a broad scope of services consisting of on-demand network and value-added services bundles with IT apps.
  • Providing everything from VNF onboarding to orchestration to SDN/NFV-ready BSS applications.
  • Leveraging Agile and DevOps methodologies during service design while utilizing NEC/Netcracker's Ecosystem 2.0 program, which has already onboarded more than 200 VNFs/IT apps.

"We are honored to be recognized for our continued commitment and outstanding product achievement in Network-as-a-Service solutions," said Sanjay Mewada, Chief Strategy Officer at Netcracker. "We believe that NaaS is vital to service providers looking to complete digital and business transformation and meet the requirements of both today's and tomorrow's virtual networks."

NEC/Netcracker's NaaS solution is the first of its kind in the market focused on helping service providers generate new revenue in both B2B and residential markets. The solution provides an end-to-end environment to rapidly create, deploy and monetize value-added services by bringing together virtualized network infrastructure and services, cloud applications, orchestration and commercialization tools through an open ecosystem of pre-integrated partners.
