NEC and NetCracker Technology announced yesterday that Swisscom has selected both companies for a major cloud-based transformation. Both companies will assist Swisscom to transform its business to a full cloud environment by jointly developing next-generation IT solutions, accelerating Swisscom's development of its virtualization capabilities and assisting it to showcase and operate a world-class hybrid network and access layer.
NetCracker and Swisscom will build a Center of Excellence for SDN/NFV and cloud transformation as part of the phase 1 of the transformation. This will enable Swisscom to optimize the use of SDN/NFV and support the testing and operationalizing of both physical and virtualized network components in real-world environments.
Both companies will also migrate Swisscom's NetCracker OSS (fulfillment and assurance) solution to the cloud by leveraging the capabilities from NetCracker's latest product suite NetCracker 10, which will result in greater flexibility and cost savings. Apart from this, NEC and NetCracker will deliver their end-to-end Service and Network Orchestration solution and Transport SDN Controller to virtualize, integrate and manage Swisscom's diverse underlying infrastructure and services and enable its seamless migration to a fully virtualized environment. 

Heinz Herren, Chief Technology Officer and Chief Information Officer at Swisscom
Our Cloud Strategy is foundational to delivering the quality and innovation that our customers have come to expect from Swisscom. We are partnering with NEC and NetCracker to put in place the key elements of our Cloud Strategy due to their track records of innovation and delivery.

Shunichiro Tejima, Executive Vice President at NEC Corporation
NEC and NetCracker have already delivered SDN/NFV solutions for commercial networks and we are confident that we can help Swisscom leverage the cloud and orchestration solutions needed to achieve its business transformation goals. By combining NEC's expertise in infrastructure technologies with NetCracker's end-to-end suite of award-winning OSS solutions and IT background, we are thrilled in supporting Swisscom's journey to the cloud and virtualization.
