What Defines Next-Gen OSS?
Netcracker's e-book takes a close look at the impact of digital transformation and network virtualization on service providers’ OSS.
OSS has changed massively in the past 20 years and stands to change even more in the immediate future. The impact of digital transformation and network virtualization on OSS cannot be discounted. From zero-touch, end-to-end service delivery to real-time response and authorization requirements and analytics-driven capacity planning, the ceiling has been raised on OSS due to evolving customer experience demands and the transition to software-centric business models.
In the e-book "Netcracker's Guide to Next-Gen OSS," Netcracker examines what defines next-generation OSS, how OSS has evolved and what's still changing. We also take a close look at provisioning in the digital world and how to automate end-to-end orchestration for virtualized services.
Some notable takeaways from the e-book include:
- Next-gen OSS differs from current and past generations because it comes largely as a response to digital services and virtualization.
- The industry has evolved to the digital services era, causing provisioning to evolve into an on-demand mode.
- BSS and OSS are converging to support digital services, making real-time functionality and big data integration common requirements for service providers.
- Hybrid orchestration is a necessary next-gen OSS component for virtual and hybrid network and service environments.
OSS is critical to what happens in the milliseconds after a customer taps a touchscreen. Service providers are working hard to make sure their next-gen OSS strategies help drive their success in virtual and digital services.
