Lightower Fiber Networks leverages Netcracker's Next-Gen OSS

Netcracker Technology has been used by Lightower Fiber Networks, the premier provider of all-fiber, high-performance networking solutions delivered over its own network, as the platform to consolidate its business processes and network infrastructure following its latest major merger, the company said.

Lightower provides all-fiber connectivity solutions to enterprises, educational institutions and governments via a network that is more than 30,000 miles wide, spanning 17 states across the Midwest, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.

The company´s network connects more than 22,000 service locations, including 275+ data centers, major cloud providers, 40+ financial exchanges and over 500 carrier hotels and central offices.

With Netcracker´s Infrastructure Optimization solution based on its resource inventory and associated services, Lightower can establish a common source for network inventory and consolidate a number of processes that would have become more overlapping and complicated following its merger with Fibertech.

Netcracker Technology, a wholly owned subsidiary of NEC Corporation, offers mission-critical solutions to service providers around the globe.
