EXFO announced it is joining forces with NEC/Netcracker SDN/NFV Solutions to incorporate pre-integrated solutions into its NFV ecosystem that it says will help communications service providers (CSPs) access the full benefits of NFV and SDN.
With the communications industry undergoing a massive transformation to enable virtualization, EXFO says that CSPs rely on automated and integrated end-to-end solutions to make sure the migration to NFV/SDN improves their operational efficiency and delivers best-in-class quality of experience (QoE).
EXFO says it has partnered with NEC/Netcracker meet this need, enabling both companies to showcase joint use cases to customers and enable CSPs to reduce the time it takes to bring innovative services to market.
“We are committed to giving our customers complete confidence that the promises of NFV will be delivered,” said Claudio Mazzuca, EXFO’s Vice-President of Systems and Services. “By innovating our virtualized service assurance solution to fully integrate with the NFV solutions from industry-leading SDN/NFV players like NEC/Netcracker, EXFO makes it possible for service providers to build and operate smarter networks, today and tomorrow.”
“Service providers need to know that NFV and SDN will enable them to deliver new innovative services quickly and efficiently,” said Rahul Chandra, Vice President of NFV/Netcracker’s Worldwide SDN/NFV Business Development. “We continuously strive to minimize risk when service providers are undergoing virtualization initiatives.”
The EXFO Ecosystems Integration Initiative is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to support CSPs during each phase of their successful transition to NFV/SDN deployment and operationalization.
