Netcracker Leads Orchestration and OSS Markets as CSPs Advance End-to-End Automation and Prepare for 5G
Netcracker Technology announced today that it has been named as the overall global market leader in service design and orchestration as well as in network orchestration by research and consultancy firm Analysys (News - Alert) Mason. In service design and orchestration, which encompasses order management, inventory management, activation and engineering design, Netcracker has been ranked the highest in global market share across both products and professional services. In network orchestration, Netcracker achieved category leader status for the second year in a row.
As CSPs move to 5G and multi-cloud to deliver new slice-based digital services, end-to-end automation becomes essential to meet agility and cost efficiency goals in a highly competitive market. Full automation can only be achieved by combining new network and service orchestration functions with modernized OSS, such as real-time inventory, configuration management and network planning and design, which operates autonomously within and across edge, core, network and public cloud domains.
Netcracker has modernized and enhanced its entire orchestration and OSS portfolio with Netcracker 2020 Digital OSS to help CSPs achieve the levels of automation they need acrss complex hybrid networks. With an open, cloud-native foundation and 5G enhancements, Netcracker has experienced strong customer growth in orchestration and OSS markets as CSPs prepare for 5G. The OSS and orchestration features and functionality work seamlessly with the updated Netcracker 2020 Digital BSS, giving operators an end-to-end solution for faster time to market with lower total cost of ownership.
