MEF 2019: 5G Operational Readiness — What New OSS/BSS Requirements?
This IDC Market Presentation discusses about 5G operational readiness. Portions of this presentation served as a backdrop for an industry-level panel session at the 2019 Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) conference held in Los Angeles, California, November 18-21, 2019.
5G is quickly evolving from technology creation to commercial realization, but will new technology deployments meet the business case promises? Doing so means that the operations (OSS) and monetization (BSS) functions must be enhanced within each of the fulfillment, assurance, and billing domains. What kind of enhancements are needed? Think real-time, partner ecosystems, software usage rights, edge-core, platforms, and operations/monetization orchestration. Can existing OSS BSS address these new needs? That depends on a lot of factors.
