Welcome to
OSS Transformation

OSS Transformation is an extensive knowledgebase about Operational Support Systems for telecom networks and how they are evolving to meet today’s challenges.

Navigate through and learn what OSS means, how the underlying telecom industry is changing and how OSS must adapt.

The Basics

Operational Support Systems are the back office computer systems which plan, configure and manage telecom networks.

For those new or revisiting the topic, we’ve summarised what OSS is all about and how the different aspects work together.

Telecom Technologies

High speed broadband data has displaced circuit switch voice as the primary telecommunication service. Ethernet, IP and mobile broadband dominate today’s investment programs.

With new technologies being widely deployed, this will impact the way that networks are built and services are provided.

The changing shape of mobile networks

With data traffic on mobile networks forecast to grow substantially over the next five years, independent research revealed how network planners are turning to a different network topology to provide the capacity.

Telecom technologies LTE

LTE will inevitably become the primary 4G wireless technology worldwide. It delivers fast data rates, increased spectrum utilisation and improved performance over 3G. A further set of optional standardised capabilities, under the general title of LTE-Advanced, continues to extend and enhance performance. What are the implications for network planning and management?

Whitepapers and Articles Datasheet: From OSS transformation to business transformation

OSS transformation has been a much talked about phenomenon in telecoms for the last five years. In this research programme Telesperience sought to gain an accurate understanding of what OSS transformation means in practice to communications service providers (CSPs) worldwide, what their primary goals are, how they’re going about transforming their OSS and the progress they’ve made.

The Basics Our Active Inventory Vision

Our vision is that the technical inventory becomes the heart of the network operation. Complete, accurate and up-to-date technical information about every equipment, circuit and logical assignment can be used by many parts of the organization, whether installing equipment onsite or dealing with customer enquiries.

OSS Domains Network Planning and Design

You can’t afford to waste any of the substantial investments made in new network equipment. Whether you’re launching new technologies, upgrading capacity or changing equipment suppliers, accurate and detailed network design is essential. Neither can you delay expansion – bottlenecks result in poor service to customers and wastage of other network assets. A fine balance is called for in order to meet rapidly growing and changing traffic demands.
