  3. > The Changing Landscape of Operational Support Systems (OSS): Technologies, Solutions, and Organizational Impacts

Overview:

Operational Support Systems (OSS) are the essential set of tools required for a Communications Service Provider (CSP) to design, deploy, monitor and maintain the content, networks and services that their customers pay to use. There are significant changes underway in the CSP industry that are causing fundamental re-evaluations of business models, technology stacks and service offerings. These disruptions to the status quo are similarly influencing, and being influenced by, OSS.

This research assesses a range of relatively nascent technologies that have the potential to change the dynamic of OSS, whether via the networks they manage, or as building blocks on which to build better OSS tools. The report evaluates various technologies including cloud delivery, network virtualization, network security, Big Data, Machine Learning and Predictive Analytics, resource models, orchestration and automation, wireless sensor networks, IoT/ M2M, Self-organizing Networks (SON), software development models, and standards such as ITSM / ITIL.

This report is must-reading for anyone involved in planning or optimizing OSS as well as anyone with a vested interest in realizing positive financial returns from OSS investment. All purchasers of this report will be entitled to Self-Organizing Networks (SON) Challenges and Market Opportunities for 3G, LTE, and Beyond, Fourth Edition at no additional cost.
