WALTHAM, MA — June 19, 2018 — NEC Corporation and Netcracker Technology announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has awarded NEC/Netcracker’s Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution with a 2018 Internet Telephony NFV Innovation Award.

NEC/Netcracker’s NaaS provides an innovative approach for creating, deploying and monetizing digital services in B2B and consumer markets.

The widely deployed solution helps service providers reduce time-to-market by as much as 70 percent, increase ARPU growth up to 25 percent and reduce churn up to 30 percent.

“Congratulations to NEC/Netcracker for receiving a 2018 Internet Telephony NFV Innovation Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO at TMC. “NEC/Netcracker’s NaaS solution has demonstrated true innovation and is leading the way in monetizing network functions virtualization. I look forward to continued excellence from NEC/Netcracker in 2018 and beyond.”

“We are excited to be recognized once again by TMC for our innovative, market-leading SDN/NFV solutions, including NaaS, which many of our customers are using today in order to deploy and monetize digital services,” said Ari Banerjee, Vice President of Strategy at Netcracker. “As enterprises and consumers come to expect access to new services on demand, it’s important for operators to work with a trusted partner like NEC/Netcracker that can meet these expectations quickly by enabling the most engaging digital experience.”
