Next Generation Network (NGN) Operational Support Systems (OSS) and Billing Support Systems (BSS) are required for a myriad of different reasons including OSS/BSS rationalization, next generation IP communications, and entirely new business models for Communication Services Providers (CSP) such as CSP support of various third parties including Over-the-Top (OTT) service providers.

CSPs have been upgrading their legacy OSS/BSS capabilities for many years. However, continuous enhancements are required as new networks, applications, services, and entirely new business models are emerging. For example, IoT Billing and Settlement represents a significant near-term growth area for Next Generation OSS/BSS. Longer-term, IoT Authentication and Authorization and the use of Blockchain will also emerge as a key area reliant upon NGN OSS.
