NetCracker Technology announced today that KDDI Corporation has selected
NEC–NetCracker to deploy its asset and resource optimization solution to
increase design/build operational efficiency and increase service quality to
maximize end-user customer satisfaction.

KDDI is a leading telecommunications operator providing converged broadband
services to residential and commercial customers in Japan.

Leveraging NetCracker’s TOMS (Telecom Operations and Management Solutions)
Suite, KDDI will automate business processes for design and build and will
consolidate its resource inventory data by:

  *Establishing an integrated database for physical layer resources for fixed
    line communications. This will enable KDDI to optimize workforce
    activities for design, build, and operation and improve the quality of
    resource data information.
  *Integrating with resource information in the logical layer. This will give
    KDDI greater insight into, and control over, network resource usage for
    the logical and physical layers.
  *Correlating resource inventory and information with data in KDDI’s asset
    accounting system. This will enable KDDI to improve its business for asset
    accounting information management.

KDDI will use a range of innovative NetCracker capabilities for resource
inventory, design & planning, and discovery & reconciliation. The solution
will ensure tight alignment between the physical and logical layers of the
network, while optimizing network deployment and operations.

“KDDI has an opportunity to leverage the combined strength of NEC–NetCracker
for this strategic transformational project,” said Mr. Satya Parakala,
NetCracker Vice President APAC. “We look forward to working closely with KDDI
to deploy this innovative solution that will enable KDDI to more efficiently
and cost effectively manage its infrastructure.”
