NetCracker Technology announced that Sprint has agreed to a multi-year agreement that will expand its use of NetCracker’s OSS solutions to support its Sprint Spark™ enhanced LTE rollout. Sprint Spark uses next-gen wireless technology to deliver a whole new level of mobile Internet experience. Sprint is among the largest telecommunications providers in the United States, providing wireless, messaging and broadband services to nearly 55 million customers.
Sprint Spark is breaking new ground by enabling peak wireless speeds of 50 to 60 megabits per second. It will support a new generation of advanced mobile services and applications, including high-bandwidth cloud services, virtual reality environments and far more advanced mobile applications.
Sprint has been utilizing NetCracker’s Resource Inventory, Order Management and Discovery & Reconciliation solutions to support its deployment of America’s newest network. Building off of that success, Sprint now expects to use these integrated solutions to achieve greater operational efficiencies, reduce time to market for new services and accelerate its Sprint Spark network rollout. Sprint expects to cover 100 million people with Sprint Spark by the end of the year.
