US : NetCracker Technology announced that WIND Hellas Telecommunications S.A. has selected the company’s OSS suite as a key element in its transformation initiative to achieve network operational excellence. NetCracker’s suite of pre-integrated software modules, automated workflows, and solution delivery expertise will enable WIND Hellas to consolidate its network operations and accelerate its wireless infrastructure evolution.
WIND Hellas will implement NetCracker’s Service Inventory, Resource Inventory, Discovery & Reconciliation, Design & Planning, and Outside Plant modules, all integrated into the NetCracker Framework. This solution provides the ability to manage converged services and offers a comprehensive set of device and service models to create a future-proof mobile carrier environment.
NetCracker’s solution will manage the core network (including 3G and IP switches), the transport network (including fiber, microwave, and UMTS networks), and the radio access network (including GSM/GPRS and UMTS).
