NetCracker Announces Agreement to Acquire Subex’s Activation Business
Acquisition Further Strengthens NetCracker’ss End-to-End Telecom Operations and Management Solution Footprint

WALTHAM, MA — September 19, 2011 — NetCracker Technology announced today that it has reached an agreement with Subex Ltd., to acquire its 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’ss 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. As Tier 1 converged service providers deploy next-generation networks and services, the ability to rapidly activate and provision services becomes a critical success factor.

“Service providers are looking for strategic partners who can deliver the complete, end-to-end fulfillment stack,” said Andrew Feinberg, President and CEO of NetCracker Technology. “With a number of shared customers, proven technology, a near perfect product fit, and a talented team of industry experts, we expect this acquisition to fit seamlessly within our offerings and expand our ability to meet customer requirements.”

“The Industry has been moving towards a single, converged platform in the fulfillment and provisioning domain as opposed to standalone capabilities in Order Management, Activation, and Inventory Management,” said Ari Banerjee, Senior Analyst, Heavy Reading. “When combined with NetCracker’s focus at the service layer, these activation and provisioning assets will enable NetCracker to significantly accelerate the order-to-activate cycle for converged service providers.”
