Netcracker Introduces Industry’s First Full-Stack Cloud-Based SDN/NFV Solution as a Service

Del

Netcracker Technology announced today the launch of a game-changing new solution: the Netcracker Business Cloud, which eliminates the time, cost and complexity barriers service providers typically face in deploying cloud-based applications and virtual connectivity services. By offering the industry’s first end-to-end, cloud-based SDN/NFV and IT solution—from VNFs to orchestration, OSS, BSS, portals and a digital marketplace—as a service, the solution enables dramatic reductions in time-to-market while opening disruptive business models for service providers. Netcracker Business Cloud, as part of its end-to-end offering, also includes comprehensive consulting and go-to-market services, making it a full turnkey solution.

Netcracker Business Cloud offers remarkable deployment flexibility using Netcracker’s cloud or a multi-cloud environment comprised of a service provider’s private cloud and public clouds, with Netcracker taking responsibility for the end-to-end service. For large service providers with OpCo and ServCo models, Netcracker Business Cloud offers the flexibility to host the solution in a single location and deliver it as a service to the affiliates, enabling them to offer next-gen B2B services quickly. While it is a full-stack solution, its flexible, microservices-based architecture allows operators to use only parts of the solution they need to further augment or replace their own cloud solutions.

Netcracker Business Cloud also has a broad range of service packages that are ready to go, leveraging an extensive set of pre-integrated VNF and cloud partners from its award-winning Ecosystem 2.0 program. By bundling cloud connectivity services, such as SD-WAN, with value-added network services, enterprise and IoT applications, service providers can create and launch highly differentiated enterprise and vertical-specific offerings in a matter of weeks.

“The time has come for service providers to adopt new approaches when offering virtual network services and cloud applications, as the traditional CSP approach of ‘do it and build it all yourself’ takes too long and is too expensive,” said Karl Whitelock, Vice President of Communications Service Provider Operations and Monetization at IDC. “When B2B customers are moving at the speed of the digital economy, time-to-market becomes a critical success factor. Solutions such as Netcracker’s Business Cloud, which can be deployed in a matter of weeks not years, address this challenge, enabling service providers to rapidly seize new business opportunities without significant disruption to the business.”

“The business, sales and marketing organizations within CSPs that are responsible for B2B revenue growth have often been frustrated by the slow pace of network and IT transformation that is holding them back from quickly offering a new and diverse set of connectivity and value-added services to the B2B market,” said Sanjay Mewada, Chief Strategy Officer at Netcracker. “CSPs now have a choice to start offering virtual services and cloud-based enterprise applications much more quickly, with flexible commercial and operational models.”

Netcracker Business Cloud provides an innovative engagement model that mitigates the business risks of migrating to virtualization and cloud and focuses on business growth. With revenue-share models, such as pay-as-you-grow, service providers can start small and scale as their business takes off. Netcracker also offers extensive go-to-market support, consulting on creating the right service mix, as well as sales and marketing support to ensure teams get up and running quickly.

Netcracker’s global reach enables the Netcracker Business Cloud to support localization and is based on an advanced security framework that protects the network and service layers from cyber threats, while keeping customer data secure. Based on a modular, cloud-native stack and leveraging Netcracker’s industry-leading portfolio and more than 25 years of industry experience, the solution can be easily expanded to add new capabilities and services at the pace of a service provider’s business.

New Survey Finds Fragmented Processes and System Silos Slowing Clinical Trials19.6.2019 11:19:00 CESTPressemelding

There is an industrywide drive to streamline trial processes and systems for better study visibility and collaboration, according to the Veeva 2019 Unified Clinical Operations Survey, one of the largest-ever surveys of clinical operations professionals. New research from Veeva Systems (NYSE:VEEV) finds that all (100%) respondents surveyed report the need to improve information exchange among study partners.
