NEC and Netcracker Launch New Agile Virtualization Platform and Practice

Richard Harris Richard Harris in Agile Monday, May 9, 2016

NEC Corporation and Netcracker Technology have teamed to launch a new Agile Virtualization Platform and Practice (AVP), which offers a set of tools, platforms and services for Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).

With the new AVP solution, NEC and Netcracker will help service providers move their operations, business processes and overall organizations along the path to becoming digital service providers (DSPs) that can take advantage of new revenue opportunities through improved agility and streamlined cost structures.

AVP will accomplish this by giving service providers the technology, training and support to:

-  Identify, build and launch new revenue-generating services more quickly.

-  Manage and integrate existing and virtualized network operations and create agile development environments to support both IT and network requirements.

-  Better align corporate stakeholders by implementing new processes and training talent in emerging software and Agile methodologies.

The components of NEC and Netcracker’s Agile Virtualization Platform and Practice include:

Virtualization Development and Operations Center

The Virtualization Development and Operations Center (VDOC) is an agile collaboration environment designed for systems architecture, network planning as well as service design and deployment teams to automate end-to-end service lifecycle management. It enables collaboration across departments and with third-party partners, including solution vendors and systems integrators. VDOC simplifies and accelerates service integration, testing and deployment by using Agile methodologies and leveraging an always expanding library of reusable service components.

Business Enablement Applications

Business Enablement Applications (BEA) are independent, microservices-based application components which can be deployed in public, private or hybrid cloud environments. BEA are designed for executives in charge of customer-facing business units to reduce the time it takes to monetize virtualization offerings for both B2B and mass markets. BEA enables this by optimizing existing IT capabilities and filling the gaps with existing Business Support Systems (BSS) in a cost-effective manner.

Hybrid Operations Management

Hybrid Operations Management (HOM) is built for the operations executive in charge of running service provider networks and is focused on making virtual and traditional networks operate simultaneously at scale. HOM leverages expertise in end-to-end service management and Management and Network Orchestration (MANO) and fills the gaps missing in today’s solutions for automating hybrid network management, including assurance, continuous optimization, security and stability. HOM integrates with VDOC to create a dynamic and continuous feedback loop between product and development environments.

Primary Systems Integration Practice

The Primary Systems Integration Practice (PSIP) helps executives tasked with moving their business forward to overcome the business, operations and technology challenges associated with leveraging virtualization technologies in multivendor, best-of-breed ecosystems. PSIP covers all stages of virtualization initiatives - from the initial definition of the program and its business case to the full transfer of operations. PSIP can help service providers improve cooperation across multiple organizational stakeholders so they can drive change while reducing the risk inherent in embracing more dynamic, software-driven ecosystems.
