Netcracker's Cloud-Based OCS: The Industry's First Always-Active Platform
As the industry's first always-active online charging system, Netcracker's Cloud-Based OCS is designed to help service providers rapidly monetize new digital services by addressing all of the key pain points associated with legacy, hardware-based charging systems. Netcracker's Cloud-Based OCS enables:

  • Always-on availability and deployment flexibility across physical and virtual environments.
  • Unparalleled cloud elasticity and scalability to keep up with the demands of VoLTE, virtualized, 5G and IoT services.
  • Converged revenue management scenarios with embedded analytics.

Netcracker recently announced that it has expanded its existing BSS partnership with Videotron, a Canada-based cable, internet, telephone and wireless service provider, by delivering its modernized OCS.

Ecosystem 2.0: Going Beyond VNF Onboarding to Commercialize Virtual Services Faster
NEC Corporation and Netcracker will also showcase Ecosystem 2.0, the next evolution in partner collaboration, at Mobile World Congress. Ecosystem 2.0 goes beyond VNF onboarding to solve operational and monetization issues associated with bringing new services to market. It enables service providers to:

  • Accelerate time-to-market with access to commercially ready services.
  • Enable continuous service innovation.
  • Leverage pre-integrated, best-of-breed VNFs with minimal risk.

Ecosystem 2.0 allows partners to:

  • Become part of NEC/Netcracker's business-driven solutions.
  • Enable seamless onboarding with access to an advanced partner portal with a dashboard that shows VNF statistics and feedback from service providers. 
  • Certify their VNFs as commercially ready, working with market-leading service orchestration, service design and business management applications.

Netcracker Demonstrates Continued Market Leadership
Netcracker continues to stand out in the market, recently being named a “Leader” in Gartner’s 2016 IRCM and OSS Magic Quadrants. Netcracker was also recognized as the industry’s sole “Leader” in NFV Management and Orchestration by Current Analysis.

Netcracker’s innovative solutions and services earned many other accolades in 2016, including two Product of the Year Awards from TMC, Fierce Markets’ Customer Engagement Innovation Award as well as TM Forum’s Digital World Award for its Outstanding Contribution to Enabling Improved Business Agility.
