SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology solutions provider, and Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) today announced the signing of cross-license agreement for an Operations Support System Interoperability Initiative (OSSii). Operators stand to benefit from the OSSii integration model. Time to market will be shortened and costs will reduce and common problems associated with current integration solutions will be significantly alleviated.

The OSSii aims to simplify interoperability between OSS systems in a multi-vendor environment. OSSii will provide easy access to interfaces that were previously subject to restricted use, and will enable interoperability testing services across a wider industry community. The parties' general guiding principles for the OSSii are openness, fairness, reasonableness and non-discriminatory treatment.

In May 2013, Huawei and NSN signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for OSSii which set out the general guiding principles of the initiative ad have now reached an agreement on the technical details of configuration, performance, and fault northbound interfaces for Radio Access, Circuit Core and Packet Core systems.

In addition to the cross-license agreement, reciprocal testing service agreements were signed between both companies to offer interoperability testing opportunities for the licensed interfaces under OSSii. As part of the agreement, Huawei and NSN will provide testing environments and OSSii interface technical documents to each other for the purposes of OSSii pre-integration testing.

As a next step Huawei and NSN plan to extend the scope of the bi-lateral license agreement to include more network nodes and interfaces as well.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
