Company Wins Prestigious SDN Excellence and NFV Pioneer Awards.

NEC Corporation and Netcracker Technology announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has awarded their joint brand NEC/Netcracker SDN/NFV Solutions its 2016 SDN Excellence Award for its Transport-SDN solution and 2016 NFV Pioneer Award for its End-to-End Orchestration solution.

“We are excited to be recognized by TMC for these awards which underscore our ability to provide our customers with the best possible solutions for driving change,” said Joanna Larivee, Senior Director of Marketing at Netcracker. “Virtualization is a key focus for our customers and the validation of our solutions’ excellence highlights our commitment to those customers and their needs.”

NEC/Netcracker SDN/NFV Solutions offers a wide variety of virtualized solutions, with its Service Orchestration capabilities playing a critical role. Successfully deploying VNFs today requires new management and orchestration functionality and NEC/Netcracker’s End-to-End Orchestration solution enables the smooth integration of virtual environments with existing infrastructure and allows all network components to be tied together cohesively.

“Congratulations to NEC/Netcracker SDN/NFV Solutions for receiving INTERNET TELEPHONY’s 2016 SDN Excellence and 2016 NFV Pioneer Awards,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO at TMC. “The company’s virtualization solutions have been singled-out for their innovative and proven approach to next-gen networks.”

The INTERNET TELEPHONY SDN Excellence Awards have been bestowed upon companies that demonstrate the innovation, vision, and execution to deliver software-based networking tools to support different and unique communities of interest.
