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.
Building upon our coverage beginning in 2007, the report Next Generation Network (NGN) Operations and Billing Support: NGN OSS/BSS Market Outlook and Forecasts 2017 - 2022 provides the most comprehensive coverage of NGN OSS/BSS including opportunities within Big Data and IoT. The report 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 2021 including the following emerging areas:
- IoT Platforms - IoT OSS and Billing - IoT Data Management
The report includes specific recommendations for OSS/BSS vendors, CSPs, Enterprise, and IoT companies.
