Under the terms of the current contract, NetCracker will provide comprehensive support for this system, which delivers next-generation, converged, IP-based services.
“Swisscom’s decision to continue its partnership with NetCracker is a true testament to the value they place on our knowledge, expertise, and technical ability”
Swisscom (Switzerland) Ltd is Switzerland’s largest telecom operator and service provider. Swisscom offers customers throughout the country a full range of products and services including Internet, TV, mobile, landline, and IP-based voice and data communication.
