Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia recently agreed to initiate the discussion on OSSii (Operation Supporting System Interoperability Initiative) MoU extension to cover 5G network technology domain.
The objective of this activity is to enable and simplify interoperability between OSS systems, reducing overall OSS integration costs and enabling shorter time-to-market for 5G network.
The scope will also look at simplifying integration capabilities towards multi-vendor operator’s OSS systems, maximizing the use intelligent and autonomous technologies.
Ignacio Mas, Head of Technology Strategy, Solution Areas OSS, Ericsson said, “Extending the OSSii MoU scope with 5G demonstrates the strength of Ericsson’s support for multi-vendor interoperability. We fully support and are committed to, the initiative that has helped service providers globally to leverage advancements in telco networks and meet the demands for optimization across their networks.”
Huawei will investigate the approach to simply the integration with Multi-Vendor operator’s OSS system utilizing intelligent and autonomous technologies as much as possible. With the scope extension, OSSii is expected to provide necessary support to 5G network automation.
Lin Guixiao, President of Huawei mobile network automation solution said, “The extension of OSSii that covers 5G network will help to accelerate 5G network deployment and commercialization. Huawei is deeply committed to the initiative. We believe the initiative could provide support to enable scenario based automation, simplify the integration between intelligent 5G network and multi-vendor operator’s OSS system. Huawei is always ready to help telecom operator to improve operational efficiency to build simpler, faster and efficient network.”
