NEC/Netcracker SDN/NFV Solutions Receives 2015 SDN Excellence Award

TMC Honors NEC/Netcracker’s Service Orchestrator for Reducing Configuration and Provisioning Costs

NEC/Netcracker SDN/NFV Solutions announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named its Service Orchestrator as a 2015 SDN Excellence Award winner presented by TMC’s INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine and SDN Zone.

NEC and Netcracker have joined forces to deliver leading innovation in networking, IT and turnkey delivery services to help service providers operationalize SDN and NFV in an open environment. With a broad and proven portfolio of orchestration, virtual network functions, SDN controllers and professional services, NEC/Netcracker SDN/NFV Solutions provides the technologies and services that operators require to create new, on-demand services with greater operational agility, less business risk and lower cost of ownership.

“As the prospective benefits of leveraging virtualized technologies become increasingly clear, the need for a highly comprehensive and integrated orchestration solution will grow,” said Mark Bieberich, Senior Director, SDN/NFV Strategy, NEC/ Netcracker SDN/NFV Solutions. “Our Service Orchestrator enables operators of all sizes to optimize service management in order to monetize next-generation virtual resources and support new business models.”

The end-to-end Service Orchestrator solution from NEC/Netcracker SDN/NFV Solutions ensures that all resource domains in the service creation process are properly orchestrated and aligned, which makes configuring and provisioning those resources less costly and complex. The Netcracker offering also helps operators improve customer experience by delivering converged and personalized services, while reducing expenses by supporting hybrid physical and virtual environments.

SDN architecture has already had a profound impact on the IT and Telecom industries and, as this technology continues to grow in popularity, the SDN Excellence Award recognizes the companies that are leading the way in SDN architecture and applications.

“Recognizing leaders advancing SDN technologies, TMC is proud to announce NEC/Netcracker SDN/NFV Solutions as a recipient of the 2015 SDN Excellence Award," said Rich Tehrani, CEO at TMC. "The Service Orchestrator has demonstrated innovation and will help shape the face of the quickly evolving industry. It is our pleasure to honor NEC/Netcracker SDN/NFV Solutions for their inspiring work.”

Winners of the SDN Excellence Award will be published in the April 2015 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.
