NICE, France -- NetCracker Technology introduced today its new Service and Network Orchestrator solution for SDN/NFV, an integrated part of its market-leading NetCracker 9 suite. This new solution enables communications service providers (CSPs) to address the complexities associated with managing and monetizing multi-vendor virtualized as well as hybrid networks and services.
NetCracker’s Service and Network Orchestrator for SDN/NFV is designed to overcome these and other related challenges and embrace monetization opportunities. It enables CSPs to realize virtualization’s key benefits such as service agility, new revenue opportunities and cost savings. Going far beyond the network-specific aspects, NetCracker’s new Service and Network Orchestrator for SDN/NFV provides:
A centralized orchestration catalog that provides complete lifecycle management and rapid onboarding of virtual network functions while enabling emerging and legacy services to coexist seamlessly.
Real-time configuration management, dynamic service chaining, dynamic capacity management and real-time service provisioning to optimize capacity and service resources across virtualized and hybrid network domains.
Service lifecycle management to maintain service quality, integrity, flexibility and service fulfillment automation as technologies evolve amidst the transition toward virtualized network states.
Providing real-time policy and analytics capabilities that orchestrate and execute complex network and service policies in response to strategic decisions based on live analyses of network and service conditions and events.
The 'gleaming city on a hill,' Steve Saunders calls it. But who is going to take us from today's NFV componentry to the grand future of a self-driving network? Here's a look at the vendors hoping to make it happen.
Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.
During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.
She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
