Videotron has upgraded its telecom operations and management solutions software (TOMS) with the latest NetCracker Technology release in order to more efficiently manage its network infrastructure.

Videotron, which has a longstanding partnership with OSS/BSS vendor NetCracker, will improve its network mapping and maximize its capacity utilization of network resources, including both physical assets and logical connections, with the upgrade. NetCracker’s professional services team will install the upgrade.

"This upgrade will enable us to further increase the return on our network investment by ensuring the highest level of capacity and asset utilization," said Pierre Roy Porretta, Videotron's vice president of engineering, research and development. "Through projects like this, NetCracker has proven to be a strategic business partner, providing us with solutions and technical expertise that help optimize our networks and future-proof our product lines."

In the past, NetCracker has helped Videotron consolidate its legacy systems and gain the flexibility to roll out and support new services and offerings, including quad-play bundles. Most recently, NetCracker completed a data migration of Videotron's circuit inventory.

Last month, Midcontinent Communications signed a long-term contract extension for NetCracker’s BSS product portfolio.
