Taking the OSS to the cloud – are CSPs there yet and how does it help their digital and network transformation?6/14/2021
Traditionally, public cloud was regarded as unable to meet the performance, security and data governance requirements of the mission-critical business and operation support systems used by the communications and media industry. However, faced with the need to increase their agility and operational efficiencies, a growing number of CSPs are now looking at migrating their operations support systems (OSS) to public clouds in order to achieve these objectives.
Furthermore, as more CSPs around the world partner with the hyperscalers for 5G and edge services, their OSS will need to expand to manage and orchestrate these services.
Amdocs and Heavy Reading discuss the state of OSS deployments on the cloud. Were the perceived disadvantages of running OSS applications on public cloud addressed? What main challenges are CSPs facing and what benefits do they expect to achieve?
