Ericsson, Huawei and Nokia have agreed to initiate discussions to extend an OSSii (Operation Support System Interoperability Initiative) Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cover 5G network technology. The aim is to enable and simplify interoperability between OSS systems, reducing overall OSS integration costs and enabling shorter time-to-market for 5G.

The scope will also look at simplifying integration capabilities towards multi-vendor operator’s OSS systems, maximizing the use intelligent and autonomous technologies. OSSii was initiated in May 2013 to promote OSS interoperability between different OSS vendor’s equipment. Since its inception, it has been a successful platform for network-wide innovation and integration.

"Extending the OSSii MoU scope with 5G demonstrates the strength of Ericsson's support for multi-vendor interoperability. We fully support and are committed to, the initiative that has helped service providers globally to leverage advancements in telco networks and meet the demands for optimization across their networks,” said Ignacio Más, Head of Technology Strategy, Solution Areas OSS, Ericsson.
