WALTHAM, MA — December 13, 2023 — Netcracker Technology announced today that it is one of the first vendors to be certified as Ready for ODA by TM Forum. Open Digital Architecture (ODA) provides the framework and interoperable software building blocks to help operators accelerate business growth and maximize efficiency.

With ODA, Open APIs and AI, Netcracker Digital Platform helps communications service providers (CSPs) quickly bring new services to market, simplify global ecosystems with zero-touch partnerships and optimize costs with intent-based automation.

Netcracker achieved the Ready for ODA distinction by participating in a rigorous evaluation process focused on key principles for its products and solutions, including contributions to ODA and real-world implementations.
