Description

Managing network operations as it transitions to a cloud-like environment presents many challenges. Most major OSS suppliers have revealed or launched their cloud strategies; but these strategies have yet to be put to the test. The strategies vary from models in which suppliers host their traditional OSS solutions in the cloud as either fully licensed solutions that the customer manages, or partitioned applications that share components among customers.
Suppliers are also beginning to push their OSS solutions as on-demand applications (although the uptake on this model is still rare.) Sometimes, the cloud serves merely as a place to host a managed service. Nokia Networks, for instance, says its OSS is fully-virtualized, and operates purely from a cloud environment. Operating cloud OSS is also replete with challenges. This report will examine some of these challenges; and Nokia’s response to them.
