Next Generation Network OSS/BSS Market and Forecast 2015 – 2020

Next Generation Network OSS/BSS Market and Forecast 2015 – 2020

Communication Service Providers (CSP) are adopting next generation OSS/BSS systems for many reasons including integration with new IP-based frameworks, emerging applications, and the need to continuously improve upon customer service and retention efforts. Other factors include the need for network operators to rationalize legacy systems into common support frameworks while simultaneously seeking differentiation relative to competition.

Adding to the complexity of implementing and operating NGN OSS/BSS are the many technical and business challenges associated with emerging technologies and solutions. CSPs must consider optimization of OSS/BSS with respect to these emerging areas, which include Software Defined Networks (SDN), Network Function Virtualization, Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0), Life Cycle Orchestration (LSO), and the emerging MEF defined “Third Network”. There are even new types of Wireless Wide Area Networks (WAN) such as Low-power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN). Each of these new areas cause compatibility challenges with legacy OSS/BSS systems.

With research beginning in 2007, the report Next Generation Network OSS/BSS Market and Forecast 2015 - 2020 provides comprehensive analysis of the drivers and issues related to the technical and business aspects of OSS/BSS, deployments and operations issues, and quantitative analysis with forecasts for anticipated growth through 2020. It also covers impact of third networks and emerging technology trends on operator’s OSS/BSS capabilities and industry perspective of TIA, EXFO, SPIRENT, and RAD. All purchases of Mind Commerce reports includes time with an expert analyst who will help you link key findings in the report to the business issues you're addressing.

General Methodology

Mind Commerce Publishing's research methodology encompasses input from a wide variety of sources.

We rely heavily upon our Subject Matter Experts (SME) in terms of their market knowledge, unique perspective, and vision. We utilize SME industry contacts as well as previous customers and participants in our market surveys and interactive interviews.

In addition, we rely upon our extensive internal database, which contains modeling, qualitative analysis, and quantitative data. We review secondary sources and compare to our primary sources to update previous findings (for prior version reports) and/or compile baseline information for technology and market modeling.

We share preliminary models with industry contacts (select previous clients, experts, and thought leaders) to verify the veracity of initial modeling. Prior to final report production (analysis, findings, and conclusions), we engage in an internal review with internal SMEs as well as cross-expertise, senior staff members to challenge results.

We believe that forecasts should be prepared as part of an integrated process which involves both quantitative as well as qualitative factors. We follow the following 3-step process for forecasting.

Forecasting Methodology

Step 1 - Forecasts Input: The inputs for the present and historical revenues are derived from industry players. Financial and other quantitative data for individual sub-market categories are derived from original research and tested with interviews with major industry constituents.

Step 2 - Forecasting of Future Years: Mind Commerce extends forecasts based on a variety of factors including demand drivers as well as supply side data. Key success factors and assumptions are considered.

Step 3 - Validation of Data: The final step is to validate projections, which is accomplished in consultation with both internal and external industry experts, including both topic and regional experts. Adjustments are made to the forecasts based on factors identified throughout this process.
