OSS, BSS critical to commercial success

Operators that delay implementing new OSS/BSS risk being relegated to wholesale providers of minutes and megabytes, according to Mason Communications.


OSS and BSS are critical to the commercial success of service providers, but the risks involved in implementing systems often result in operators delaying the decision for as long as possible.


However, legacy systems that are designed for per-minute-based services and are simply not sufficient for the next generation will cost operators more in the long run should they continue to ignore them. There is a very real threat to established service providers from new entrants as these do not have to contend with legacy OSS/BSS.
