Huawei has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Netscout, allowing the latter’s TrueCall geoanalytics platform to access Huawei OSS interfaces under OSS interoperability initiative (OSSii).

Huawei has previously signed MOUs with several independent service vendors within OSS field.

OSSii was established by Huawei, Ericsson and Nokia in May 2013, and aims for eliminating the OSS interoperation obstacles with multiple vendors, and simplifying the interoperation between different systems. New network versions will be available for OSSii members to avoid long-haul and complex integration.

“Along with rapid development of telecommunications network, interoperability is costing more,” said Jiang Wangcheng, president of Huawei Wireless Network SingleOSS Product Line. “The cooperation with more and more independent vendor for test and measurement equipment will help us to achieve more innovation and cooperation in OSSii, which creates greater value for our customers.”

Also, Huawei has contributed to setting BSS Metrics definitions for TM Forum Metrics Definitions by collaborating with TM Forum members in the latter’s metrics development project.

These metrics fall into the following five key areas of digital service experience, which was initialized by Huawei’s ROADS (Real-time; On-Demand; All-online; Do It Yourself; Social) concept — mobile, social, personalization, smooth surfing, and fast response.

The team has defined 16 suitable and effective KPI metrics for the above five key areas of digital services experience, which will be incorporated into the Metrics Definitions of the TM Forum’s Frameworx 16 Guidelines.
