Cable Center Names NetCracker Co-Presenting Sponsor of Customer Experience Committee

DENVER, CO — November 11, 2014 — The Cable Center announced today that NetCracker Technology has been named a co-presenting sponsor of its Customer Experience Committee ("C5"). This is the second consecutive year that NetCracker has sponsored C5.

As a part of The Cable Center's Customer Experience Central initiatives, C5 is comprised of 25 invited members who represent leading cable operators in North America and Europe.

C5 member companies are then able to share these insights and new approaches to customer care with others in their field and their corporate colleagues. The Cable Center and C5 also present panels at industry conferences.

NetCracker Technology provides communications service providers and cable operators comprehensive end-to-end BSS/OSS solutions, as well as enterprise applications and next-generation SDN/NFV offerings supported by in-depth delivery expertise.
