NEC and Netcracker Technology have announced, in partnership with Infinera and Juniper Networks, that they released a new Transport SDN solution. This solution, designed to transform how networks are managed and control, benefits service providers by enabling network transformations in order to deliver an improved customer experience and produce significant cost savings.
Combining Infinera’s strength in building its Intelligent Transport Networks, Juniper’s industry-leading capabilities in IP/MPLS, physical/virtual network functionality and domain orchestration, and NEC/Netcracker’s multilayer control and service orchestration expertise, including NEC’s advanced network transport products, the partnership enables a compelling new Transport SDN solution. This new solution provides full visibility across all IP, optical and microwave domains, including SDN and traditional network environments, optimizes network utilization and automates service provisioning and path restoration.
This solution benefits service providers by enabling network transformations that intelligently adapt to the dynamic requirements of end users with the ability to carve out network slices for specific services end-to-end. This makes it possible to accommodate changing traffic patterns and on-demand customer requests, deliver an improved customer experience and produce significant cost savings by optimizing capacity usage. Additionally, the solution empowers service providers to automate their network service infrastructure, enabling them to focus their resources on expanding revenue opportunities while optimizing their service costs at any given time.
