New OSS/BSS Models for Next Generation Communications Business and User Experience
Most communication service providers (CSPs) have already identified cloud services as a key strategic driver for a new revenue stream that enhances their existing managed network solutions.
There are numerous initiatives to develop offerings in cloud services such as Infrastructure, Platform, and Software as a Service (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS). Already, there are offerings by many major CSPs in the computing and storage areas (IaaS).

Ericsson estimates that by 2020, 50 billion devices will benefit from a network connection. These will range from today’s handheld devices to energy meters, vending machines, household appliances and transportation.
Recent studies show that very soon 80% of all people accessing the internet will be using a mobile device.
Today, mobile networks already carry more data traffic, than voice, but this trend towards ubiquitous connectivity means that CSPs will face unprecedented business change that they must adapt to in order to thrive.
Communications will change from person to person (P2P) towards machine to machine (M2M). Growth drivers for mobile connections in the next decade will thus be applications to enable all kinds of machines to communicate in an intelligent way and by this, creating value to consumers and verticals. This will require a streamlined and holistic approach to designing OSS/ BSS architectures that, for a great number of CSPs will involve a transformation of their current environments.
