NetCracker Technology announced today that Videotron, a leading Canadian
telecommunications provider, has chosen to upgrade its current TOMS (Telecom
Operations and Management Solution) software to the latest NetCracker release.
NetCracker’s professional services team will deliver the upgrade and provide
Videotron with new and improved capabilities to more efficiently manage its
network infrastructure.

Upgrading to the latest NetCracker release will enable Videotron to improve
its network mapping and maximize its capacity utilization of network
resources, including both physical assets and logical connections. This
enhanced functionality will drive operational efficiency at the same time that
it reduces the overall cost of operating and maintaining Videotron’s network.

“This upgrade will enable us to further increase the return on our network
investment by ensuring the highest level of capacity and asset utilization,”
said Pierre Roy Porretta, Videotron’s Vice-President Engineering, Research &
Development. “Through projects like this, NetCracker has proven to be a
strategic business partner, providing us with solutions and technical
expertise that help optimize our networks and future proof our product lines.”

NetCracker and Videotron have a long and productive relationship delivering a
number of successful implementations and expansions. In previous projects,
NetCracker has helped Videotron consolidate its legacy systems and gain the
flexibility to roll out and support new services and offerings — including
quad-play bundles. Most recently, NetCracker completed a data migration of
Videotron’s circuit inventory.

“It is a testament to the partnership we have established with Videotron that
they have once again chosen to leverage NetCracker’s best-in-class products,
professional services, and solution delivery expertise to enhance their
infrastructure management capabilities,” said Sylvain Seignour, NetCracker’s
Vice President Americas and Europe. “I am confident that this upgrade will be
another successful step forward as our combined project teams position
Videotron for greater competitive differentiation, stronger customer
satisfaction, and enhanced profitability.”
