Netcracker Technology announced today that NEC/Netcracker has won a 2018 Network Transformation Award from Layer123 for Best Network/IT Transformation Project. The award was presented at its associated gala dinner as part of Layer123’s SDN NFV World Congress in The Hague, Netherlands.
The award is based on NEC/Netcracker’s partnership with service providers to successfully complete their massive, end-to-end network and IT transformations using the full stack from Netcracker, which incorporates virtualization, network and service orchestration, revenue management, partner and customer management, and portals. The transformations have resulted in significant benefits related to automation, efficiency, agility and cost reductions, enabling service providers to meet core business and operational KPIs.
This award follows the recent announcement of the Netcracker Business Cloud: the industry’s first full-stack SDN/NFV solution as a service. Netcracker Business Cloud enables service providers to accelerate their IT and network transformations by moving to the cloud faster with minimal risk through a managed service model.
“Our Network Transformation Awards focus on recognizing groundbreaking leadership and achievements, driving the market forward through innovation,” said Petra Callaly, General Manager at Layer123. “During the judging process, our panel of expert judges felt that NEC/Netcracker proved that their collaboration with third parties, the open source community and its leadership has been a significant contribution for the industry.”
“As the industry shifts to the adoption of cloud and other next-gen technology, it’s important that they work with a strategic partner that can help them develop and carry through those important initiatives,” said Ari Banerjee, Vice President of Strategy at Netcracker. “We are honored to be recognized by our achievements with this award and we look forward to working with service providers that want to disrupt the status quo and evolve.”
