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.
Light Reading founder Steve Saunders talks with VMware's Shekar Ayyar, who explains why cloud architectures are becoming more distributed, what that means for workloads, and why telcos can still be significant cloud services players.
A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
