Netcracker Remains the Market's Sole Leader in NFV Management and Orchestration (MANO)
Netcracker Technology, an NEC company, announced today that industry
research firm Current Analysis (News - Alert) has once again named Netcracker as the
sole "leader" in its formal market assessment on network functions
virtualization (NFV) management and orchestration (MANO). NFV MANO is
considered a critical component for defining, instantiating and managing
network infrastructure and services in the cloud.
This report, "NFV MANO: Competitive Dynamics and Solution Assessments,"
focuses on NFV MANO, including NFV orchestrator (NFVO) and virtual
network function manager (VNFM) components. It is written by David Snow,
Principal Analyst of IP Services Infrastructure at Current Analysis.

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 omparison 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.
"Despite the NFV MANO competitive field widening, Netcracker's continued
leadership in our market assessment is based on its solution being among
the more comprehensive and functionally sophisticated in the market,"
said David Snow. "Netcracker has also operationally wrapped and
onboarded a very high number of third-party VNFs, delivering multiple
live MANO deployments at the NFVO level including integration with
carrier OSS and BSS. This demonstrates its ability to both address the
service provider's broad needs and to deliver and integrate its solution
into a live environment."
