Unify Resource Management Across Physical and Virtual Networks
Netcracker Hybrid Resource Management provides a unified, cross-domain approach for managing physical and virtual resources, a critical requirement for service providers wishing to deliver more dynamic services. Netcracker’s product suite automates inventory, discovery, network planning and design, capacity management, configuration and monitoring processes across hybrid network and IT resources to optimize network performance, reduce costs and enable on-demand services.
Based on a cloud-native architecture, Netcracker Hybrid Resource Management components are deployed as a set of reusable microservices with open APIs, enabling faster implementation of new services and in-service upgrades with zero downtime. The product suite delivers a centralized, real-time view of networks and devices, providing zero-touch provisioning of network elements and the evolution towards new network technologies such as 5G and Open vRAN.
