Vast Broadband Completes Phase 1 of Multi-Year BSS Managed Services Deal

NetCracker Platform and Hosted Managed Services Will Help U.S. Cable Operator Automate Order-to-Cash as Part of its Business Transformation

WALTHAM, MA — JUNE 9, 2015 — NetCracker Technology announced today that Vast Broadband, formerly known as Clarity Telecom, has gone live with the NetCracker Revenue Management solution, which it will use through a multi-year hosted managed services arrangement.

Vast Broadband, which was recently rebranded from Clarity Telecom, is a cable operator providing high-speed Internet, television and digital voice services to residential and business customers across multiple Midwestern states.

Shortly following its rebranding strategy, Vast Broadband has gone live with the comprehensive NetCracker Revenue Management solution, which will provide the operator with a more reliable billing platform and strong order-to-cash solution that will scale alongside the company.

“NetCracker’s successful delivery of its cutting-edge Revenue Management solution has validated our decision to continue our relationship,” said Larry Eby, Chief Operating Officer at Vast Broadband. “NetCracker’s comprehensive managed services capabilities have reaffirmed our confidence in them to host, manage and run its platform, allowing us to streamline our order-to-cash process and strengthen our customer and billing management operations.”

By leveraging the NetCracker Revenue Management solution, Vast Broadband will be able to consolidate and optimize billing, rating and charging operations while utilizing the substantial economies of scale provided through NetCracker’s Managed Services, decreasing expenses and mitigating management challenges. As part of this program, NetCracker also migrated customers from a legacy billing platform onto the NetCracker solution.

“We are excited to complete the implementation of our Revenue Management solution and look forward to helping Vast Broadband in the future through our hosted managed services agreement,” said Sylvain Seignour, Vice President of Global Sales at NetCracker. “Our hosted managed services model will enable Vast Broadband to scale and adapt to market changes more quickly, all while optimizing billing operations through a sophisticated platform.” For more information on NetCracker’s Managed Services or billing solutions, please contact Juliet Shavit of SmartMark Communications at
