Among the 13 vendors evaluated, Netcracker emerged as the only “leader” due to its comprehensive Agile Virtualization Platform and Practice (AVP) and sophisticated Hybrid Operations Management (HOM) suite which comprises NFVO and VNFM.

Current Analysis evaluated 13 vendors in five categories: overall solution portfolio, functional support, integration & interworking, VNF & network service support and deployability. Each vendor was ranked as either “vulnerable,” “competitive,” “strong,” “very strong” or “leader.”
For the second time in the past year, Netcracker emerged as the sole leader in the formal vendor comparison due to its comprehensive Agile Virtualization Platform and Practice (AVP), which was unveiled in 2016. Current Analysis noted that Netcracker’s Hybrid Operations Management (HOM) suite, which comprises NFVO and VNFM, was one of the most functionally sophisticated offerings analyzed in the report. The report also cited the value of Netcracker’s commercialized partner ecosystem and orchestration capabilities at the VNFM level.
