NEC/Netcracker and Netrounds have announced their partnership to accelerate automated service assurance and full service lifecycle testing for CSPs. This collaboration will allow CSPs to not only pursue new revenue opportunities and experience increased efficiency but also reduce operational expenditures while advancing virtualization initiatives.
Netrounds, a leading provider of active network analytics and software-based test and service assurance solutions for communications service providers (CSPs), announced today that it has joined the NEC/Netcracker SDN Partner Space ecosystem and is collaborating with NEC and Netcracker, providers of software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) solutions as well as business and operations support systems (BSS/OSS). The collaboration will enable CSPs to capture new revenue opportunities by accelerating agile deployments of assured network services and incorporating active test and assurance solutions via open APIs into OSS workflows for increased efficiency and decreased operational expenditures.
Netrounds’ software-based active test and assurance platform will be integrated with NEC and Netcracker’s orchestration and network monitoring solutions to allow CSPs to deploy an active solution that covers the entire service lifecycle in an automated, DevOps-based and operationally efficient way. This will accelerate the delivery of dynamic network services by eliminating manual efforts that prevent full automation of fulfillment and assurance workflows.
