NFV: A Catalyst for OSS Transformation


Legacy operations support systems (OSS) may not be in the spotlight for consumer and business customers, but they have the opportunity to be prime-time players as service providers virtualize their networks. While the early thinking was that network function virtualization (NFV) might eliminate the need for OSS, it still plays a key role by building a bridge between the legacy systems and virtualized elements in the evolution of hybrid networks.

In this Telco Transformation Radio show, James Crawshaw, Senior Analyst OSS/BSS Transformation, Heavy Reading, will discuss the challenges and opportunities around re-creating OSS in a virtualized world including: how next-gen OSS enables more agility and a better customer experience, the role it plays for creating new revenue generating services and cost-saving opportunities that are associated with NFV, and defining the interaction between existing OSS and NFV Management and Orchestration (MANO). He will also examine some of the key criteria for future-ready OSS such as:

  • Interoperability
  • Modularity
  • Automation
  • Analytics-led
  • Real-time
  • Catalog-driven
  • Intent-based
  • Iterative/collaborative development
