The company Netcracker, acquired in 2008 by NEC, is currently involved in a SDN initiative with America Movil, along with two partners (one for IP -Juniper- and an optical one -which was not disclosed-). Among the three companies, they have the intelligence and the orchestration for dynamic systems that allow to meet greater demands at a time of the day, for example, and less in another, under a "scale in - scale out" scheme. Marcio Carlos Zara, Sales Director for Southern Latin America and of SDN and NFV of the company estimated that with these implementations, investment in transport can be reduced between 25% and 30%: "On the pathway to 5G, with speeds of more than 5 Gbps and operators that can not invest enough, it is vital to provide intelligence to manage the network".
In turn, the company has been working for three years in a virtualization pilot test with Vivo Brazil, intended for the residential broadband market: it consists of virtual CPEs for about 2,000 customers. In an interview with Convergencialatina, Fabio Gatto, Netcracker General Manager for Latin America, explained that "with this, a business case to be launched at commercial level is being made. In addition, we face a proof of concept for the Enterprise segment, also with virtual CPEs, which first aimed at reducing costs, but then began to add associated services for the customer, such as the Cloud".
