Taking into account the vast expanse of OSS/BSS market, most of the software companies have been acquiring firms involved in the development of the operational support systems environments. For instance, recently, the U.S. based leading supplier of telecommunication equipment, software, and services, Ciena acquired DonRiver which provides service inventory management software for OSS environments. This acquisition has helped Ciena improve its business process through network resource planning and utilization of closed-loop automation. The software control and programmable infrastructure of DonRiver will further optimize the Ciena’s inventory control solutions.

The shifting focus of end-use sectors toward the adoption of Software as a service (SaaS) and Cloud-based digitized deployment platform for fueling the use of automation and the effective network management has been augmenting the OSS/BSS industry outlook remarkably. The integration of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence technologies in the network services will transform the future of OSS/BSS market with its capability to manage complex network issues and improve the customers’ experience.

The transition of companies towards automated operations from traditional manual processes to improve the working efficiency and accuracy is likely to stimulate the product demand over the years ahead. Indeed, the rising concerns among financial institutions, IT and telecom companies about data security and operational breaches are poised to increase the valuation of OSS/BSS market, slated to accumulate more than USD 50 billion by the end of 2024.
