Globe Telecom in the Philippines has selected NEC and Netcracker Technology to support its digital transformation initiative and lay the foundation for next-generation infrastructure, including virtualization.

Globe will use Netcracker's OSS suite and Service Orchestration solution, a component of NEC/Netcracker's Hybrid Operations Management solution and Agile Virtualization Platform and Practice.

Globe is upgrading and optimizing its infrastructure for new digital services. Netcracker's OSS suite, comprised of Service Activation, Resource Inventory, and Discovery & Reconciliation, and NEC/Netcracker's Service Orchestration solution are expected to enable Globe to lay the foundation for hybrid operations between physical and virtual infrastructure.

The solutions will also optimize current service deployment processes and increase the level of automation.

"Our customers expect us to offer the most innovative digital services in the market and deliver those services reliably and consistently," said Pebbles Sy-Manalang, CIO at Globe. “As such, we continue to invest in cutting-edge technology that will allow seamless customer experience.”

Elizabeth Pangan, president of NEC Philippines, said that Globe is using NEC solutions to give it the agility and flexibility needed to keep pace with such a fast-moving market.

“We are confident that these capabilities will result in better operations for Globe, introducing even more possibilities for growth in the future,” said Pangan.

Loh John Wu, general manager of Asia Pacific at Netcracker, sai the transition into a next-generation service provider requires the deployment of new technologies and processes, both of which are important aspects of transformation.
