The transcendence of OSS/BSS has a lasting impact in both industry and among customer

FREMONT, CA: As the new telecom industry powers through, the requirements for the OSS and BSS system will vary in sync. A non-optional switch to automated systems and management-as-service logic is the result of the placement of new service layer architecture and customer experience management at the core. The key changes in the OSS and BSS system are the transformation from supply-based to demand-based vision, from operational resource support to automated support, and conversion from management-as-an overlay to management-as-service. In the future, customer experiences will decide the kind of services the network will provide; these options include transport/connection touchpoints, content and processing resources, subscriber know-how, customer behavior, and the customer location. The attention is shifted to the services supplied to the customer — a new service layer, through which the network transport and connection elements are arranged.
