NetCracker Technology has announced that the company has been selected by Golden Telecom, Inc. (NASDAQ: GLDN) to help streamline the operator’s back office operations and service provisioning processes. The agreement makes NetCracker a part of Golden Telecom’s project aimed at building a single homogeneous network information system. Golden Telecom is a leading facilities-based provider of integrated telecommunications and Internet services in major population centers throughout Russia and other countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS.)
By deploying NetCracker’s OSS solution, Golden Telecom will gain up-to-date knowledge and access to its network infrastructure. NetCracker’s Network Inventory System will help Golden Telecom consolidate its data related to network resources and services and support the planning and analysis of physical and logical resources. Additionally, this OSS solution will allow improving the efficiency of network troubleshooting and capacity management.
NetCracker was chosen after an extensive due diligence process, which focused on software architecture, product functionality, and performance metrics, as well as the ability of Golden Telecom’s potential partner to support the operator’s unique requirements. At the end of the evaluation process, NetCracker was chosen due to its clear understanding of Golden Telecom’s needs and the strength of the proposed solution, which includes both NetCracker’s products and services.
“NetCracker is honored to be a key part of Golden Telecom’s OSS transformation activities,” said Andrew Feinberg, President and CEO of NetCracker Technology. “We are looking forward to developing a mutually beneficial, long-term partnership with Golden Telecom.”
