BSS in the Cloud

Industry Report | 1.6 MB

The BSS market has changed radically in recent years as the telecoms industry has adopted new technologies such as HSPA and, more recently, LTE. All-IP networks that have opened the way for more sophisticated services have resulted in a need for increasingly complex support systems. To a degree, these requirements have been fulfilled by the use of outsourcing and third-party service management; however, the appearance of a new business model—cloud-based BSS—is promising to offer communication service providers (CSPs) an alternative to existing solutions.
