NEC Corporation and Netcracker Technology have announced today that Colt has selected them to enable and support its large-scale OSS transformation and optimise it for virtualisation.
The transformation will support Colt in the deployment of
the next generation of its infrastructure, including
virtualisation. Colt will leverage Netcracker's future-proof,
next-generation OSS and service orchestration solution, which
is a part of NEC/Netcracker's agile virtualisation platform and
"Our customers continue to expect new services to be
delivered to them faster, which requires us to optimise our
intelligent network and pave the way for fast-growing bandwidth
requirements," said Rajiv Datta, CTO at Colt. "We are giving

Colt is a global high bandwidth connectivity provider that
delivers services to metropolitan small, medium and large
enterprises as well as wholesale carriers in nearly 30
countries, through its intelligent, purpose-built,
cloud-integrated network, known as the Colt IQ Network.
Netcracker's OSS and Service Orchestration solution, a
component of NEC/Netcracker's AVP's hybrid operations
management solution, will enable Colt to optimise its physical
network and quickly monetise new investments. Netcracker's
solutions will also prepare Colt's infrastructure for the use
of both physical and virtualised environments.
NEC/Netcracker's Service Orchestration solution will give
Colt the ability to enable new levels of provisioning

services to customers, eliminate the risk of provisioning
errors brought about by manual processes and give Colt more
accurate views into the network in order to provide enhanced
support and deliver a superior customer experience.
Yaniv Zilberman, vice president of sales at Netcracker,

developed and launched virtualised technologies is becoming

as they transform in order to meet evolving customer needs.
Colt is a perfect example of a forward-looking company that
understands its need to challenge the status quo, and we look
forward to supporting its journey into a next-generation
