Award: TM Forum Digital World Awards 2016

Category: Outstanding Contribution to Enabling Improved Business Agility Award

TM Forum recognizes that Netcracker has made an outstanding and innovative contribution to significantly improving the business agility of one of its customers — a leading logistics company that is now managing one of the world’s largest supply chains.


Technology Demos

In Booth 316, we have a room designated for set demonstrations that run on the hour throughout TM Forum Live! 2016. These demos are open to all event attendees and highlight several paths to improve overall business plans, streamline operations, automate critical processes and provide better customer experiences at every network endpoint.

The descriptions of our planned demos are below.

NOTE: The demo showcase is for service providers ONLY.


The Best of BSS: Defining How You Sell and Enable Business Growth
This demonstration walks through the entire customer journey—for both residential and enterprise customers—from the onboarding process to maintaining personalized relationships with established customers. The journey will show how sales users convert leads to sales on a single, end to end platform. At the heart of the solution lies the product catalog which allows providers to define what and how they sell to their customers. Highlights of Netcracker’s latest and greatest capabilities regarding upcoming industry trends will be validated throughout the demonstration.


Next-Gen OSS: Orchestrating Your Digital Network Ecosystem
As service providers continue to expand their network and customer bases, they require a powerful, scalable and flexible OSS solution that can accommodate evolving technologies and increasingly complex networks. This demonstration showcases how various users can solve problems and perform tasks related to service design, network management and resource inventory all from a single, unified platform. Netcracker’s OSS provides an end-to-end view of resource allocation, enables the flexibility of a technology-agnostic framework and serves as a single point of truth for the entire network infrastructure.


Virtualization: Improved Agility and Revenue Opportunities
Service providers are recognizing the promises of using virtualized technologies to open new revenue streams and deliver services faster to customers. This demonstration will show that successfully deploying vCPE for enterprise customers or implementing transport SDN and ensuring that all components cooperate in hybrid environments can allow service providers to deliver a better customer experience, regardless of how customers access the network. Netcracker’s suite of SDN/NFV solutions enables businesses to create new service bundles and rapidly provision new services through self-service portals to maximize revenue.

As customers shop through more channels, having a single, unified store where end users can make purchases will be critical to ensure loyalty and an optimize experience. These environments will be critical for DSPs, especially as partner ecosystems expand. Be sure to stop by this catalyst to find out the plug-and-play power of a digital omnishop.
