NetCracker Technology announced that it has reached an agreement to acquire Subex’s activation and provisioning business in an asset sale.
 
NetCracker will acquire Subex’s NetProvision, NetOptimizer, and Vector products, and the associated business. NetProvision and NetOptimizer represent what was previously the Syndesis business covering the provisioning and activation domains.
 
These assets are complementary to NetCracker’s Telecom Operations and Management Solutions suite, and will further strengthen NetCracker's Order-to-Activate capabilities.
 
Subex’s activation and provisioning business has been one of the market leaders in its segment. The scalability and high availability of the platform, combined with the diversity of network elements supported, underscore Subex’s strong track record of innovation and successful delivery. This acquisition pairs NetCracker's breadth of offerings at the customer and service layer with strong network activation capabilities.
