When Oracle Communications was named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Operations Support Systems for the seventh consecutive time, it was recognized in particular for its modern OSS, which provides open, multi-domain, service fulfillment, and cross-layer orchestration to enhance business and operational agility across traditional and virtualized networks. When going digital, CSPs will need modern OSS, with OSS data becoming more important to lines of business, as well as to marketing and strategic planning departments — all of which strive to better understand how the creation, fulfillment, provisioning and assurance of products and solutions will affect customer experience.
More strategic OSS will necessitate a convergence of network/service assurance (which has a direct impact on end users' perceived QoE) and service fulfillment (all actions and processes involved in implementing a service order and provisioning the service to the customer). It will also require embedded analytics, automated business processes, and workflows that make OSS more automated and configurable—the ultimate being a self-orchestrating, horizontal software layer that supports hybrid physical and virtual resources—ostensibly, an SDN- and NFV-driven OSS execution layer (OSS orchestration).
In that vein, Oracle Communications provides both traditional OSS and strategic OSS. To learn more, read about our Oracle Communications Service and Network Orchestration, an open, agile, model-driven approach designed to accelerate CSPs' digital transformation efforts by supporting both physical and virtual environments.
