Join Mobile Europe, Oracle and Analysys Mason, for this webinar as we look at the critical role of OSS in enabling the smooth introduction of NFV & SDN.

What will this webinar cover?

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) are two key initiatives that will fundamentally re-shape how CSPs introduce, deliver and manage services in their networks in the future.

Nowhere will this effect be more profound than in their Operations Support Systems (OSS) environment which will have to support both these new technologies together with the current reality and also enable the gradual transition between the two.

Drawing from primary research conducted with leading operators by Analysys Mason, this webinar will articulate the developed point of view on the key OSS requirements that will drive and interactively outline how, regardless of how your network evolves, such OSS solutions will support you along any and all points on the journey. 

This webinar also featured an interactive audience Q&A session chaired by our Editor, Graeme Neill.
