In 2008, after 15 years of independent growth, Netcracker was successfully acquired and became a wholly owned subsidiary of NEC Corporation. The combination brought together NEC’s 100+ years of network expertise and innovation with Netcracker’s deep understanding of IT and aggressive go-to-market strategy.
Since then, NEC has consolidated all of its telecom software and services assets under Netcracker. These assets range from innovative applications and service platforms—including customer, service and network management—to NEC’s comprehensive suite of professional services.
In February 2015, NetCracker and NEC launched a new initiative to address the opportunities associated with SDN and NFV for service providers. This joint initiative brings together the best of NEC’s network innovation and NetCracker’s IT leadership and telecom expertise to deliver comprehensive end-to-end SDN/NFV solutions.
