NEC and Netcracker Unveil Full-Service NaaS Solution

NEC and Netcracker unveiled their full-service Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution -- an an end-to-end environment to rapidly create, deploy and monetize value-added services by bringing together virtualized network infrastructure and services, cloud applications, orchestration and commercialization tools through an open ecosystem of pre-integrated partners.

NEC/Netcracker NaaS is powered by an Agile Virtualization Platform and Practice (AVP) based on SDN and NFV. The solution features a cloud marketplace spanning basic network services (such as enterprise vCPE, residential CPE and SD-WAN), value-added network services (such as firewalls, bandwidth-on-demand, web filtering and WAN optimization) and cloud-based business productivity applications.

"The NEC/Netcracker NaaS solution takes full advantage of the network and enables the provisioning of new services, such as security and enterprise applications," said Shigeru Okuya, General Manager of the SDN/NFV Division at NEC Corporation. "Moreover, the NaaS solution contributes to fast and flexible service engagement for B2B services in which service providers face increasing competition in the market."

"Service providers are increasingly looking beyond their traditional core offerings as they face continued competition and price erosion. The need to rapidly onboard and launch new services, including enhanced network facilities as well as third-party offerings, is critical as they broaden their revenue mix," said Fran Heeran, Vice President and General Manager of SDN/NFV at Netcracker. "The NEC/Netcracker NaaS solution provides a complete, end-to-end environment that supports the definition, provisioning, orchestration and lifecycle management of complex services. It leverages the advances in both network and function virtualization to allow a new level of flexibility and automation, lowering costs and reducing time-to-market."
