Optimizing management and monetization
Future network architecture will be built ready for business. It will bring an extraordinary number of new products and services to industries, transforming the ICT landscape – both technically and commercially. With this comes an expectation for service providers to introduce new products as soon as they become available, and in the most cost-efficient way; balancing the economies of scale and scope more than ever.
Open for business
In a highly-competitive telecoms industry where the bar will be raised again and again, it's vital that the network architecture can offer different industries standardized and specialized services. Naturally, this platform will grow and evolve as more customers are added.
Our OSS/BSS architecture, management and monetization model is designed for businesses, handling all network resources provided by Ericsson and other vendors. The architecture covers business processes, functional decomposition and information for optimum operator performance.
The management architecture supports automation, whereas the OSS/BSS functionality supports the required business agility and cost optimization
