NEC and its BSS/OSS subsidiary, NetCracker, announced in February 2015 a network virtualization go-to-market initiative, NEC/NetCracker SDN/NFV Solutions. NEC provides a well-established portfolio of SDN controllers, VNFs and NFVI, and NetCracker brings a full range of commercially available LSO solutions, including service and network (NFV) orchestration and modernized, cloud-enabled BSS functions such as customer self service, partner management, and real-time rating and charging. As an acknowledged leader in the BSS/OSS market, NetCracker brings IT expertise and turnkey software delivery services to help operators integrate and deploy network virtualization solutions from NFVI to LSO and BSS/OSS layers.
The NEC/NetCracker Orchestrator allows customers to use any combination of service and network orchestration from a common platform. Service orchestration integrates with the existing BSS/OSS environment, automates service chaining across physical and virtual network boundaries, and unifies policy-based service instantiation and assurance management for physical and virtual networks. Network orchestration is also provided, enabling operations of multiple VNF Managers and Virtual Infrastructure Managers (VIMs). The NEC/NetCracker orchestration solution works with OpenStack-based solutions and third-party VIMs such as VMWare and Microsoft Hyper-V.
