Communication Service Providers (CSP) are adopting next generation OSS/BSS systems for many reasons including integration with new IP-based frameworks, emerging applications, and the need to continuously improve upon customer service and retention efforts. Other factors include the need for network operators to rationalize legacy systems into common support frameworks while simultaneously seeking differentiation relative to competition.

Adding to the complexity of implementing and operating NGN OSS/BSS are the many technical and business challenges associated with emerging technologies and solutions. CSPs must consider optimization of OSS/BSS with respect to these emerging areas, which include Software Defined Networks (SDN), Network Function Virtualization, Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0), Life Cycle Orchestration (LSO), and the emerging MEF defined “Third Network”. There are even new types of Wireless Wide Area Networks (WAN) such as Low-power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN). Each of these new areas cause compatibility challenges with legacy OSS/BSS systems.

With research beginning in 2007, the report Next Generation Network OSS/BSS Market and Forecast 2015 - 2020 provides comprehensive analysis of the drivers and issues related to the technical and business aspects of OSS/BSS, deployments and operations issues, and quantitative analysis with forecasts for anticipated growth through 2020. It also covers impact of third networks and emerging technology trends on operator’s OSS/BSS capabilities and industry perspective of TIA, EXFO, SPIRENT, and RAD.
