By Divya Narain, TMCnet Contributor
NEC (News - Alert) Corp subsidiary NetCracker has announced that it has boosted its expanded offerings to non-telecom entities that are facing increasing demands for more automated and operationally efficient networks. These include utilities that are planning and deploying smart grid programs, high speed connectivity providers, storage and data center providers, and government organizations.
NetCracker (News - Alert) caters to these entities because of their specific requirements as enterprises that do not fall into the strict category of communications service providers. These specific requirements include the need to improve the integration and management of Network, IT, and Applications, provide high speed connectivity, provide increased amounts of storage as well as the ability to secure data remotely, increase the flexibility of smart networks and develop the ability to work in and manage mixed wireless and wireline environments
"NetCracker is uniquely positioned to address these concerns because of its vast experience helping global operators merge and maximize the power of their networks," said Andrew Feinberg, president and CEO of NetCracker. "NetCracker's newly expanded services and solutions are ideal for addressing the needs of these complex networks."
In February 2010, NetCracker had announced that it has expanded into all areas of Telecom Operations and Management Solutions and Services. This expansion received wide coverage from European Communications Spring 2010 issue, as per a recent TMCnet article.
At the Management World trade show in Nice, France this week, NetCracker is announcing the extension of these services and solutions to a new breed of industries and networks that are facing complex communications infrastructure challenges.
"NetCracker, with the support of its parent company, NEC Corporation, is poised to deliver innovation, solutions, and management to these communities, with the goal of sharing their experiences and enabling success," added Feinberg. "In some cases we are talking about new operators that have risen out of the evolving communications ecosystem, and in other cases, industries that have long served their customers and are now facing communications and IT challenges that are more complex than ever before."
