A guide to mastering one of the most strategically critical aspects of any telecommunications, ISP, or ASP business
Operational Support Systems (OSS) refers to the technical infrastructure that enables telecommunications companies, ISPs, ASPs, and CLECs to provide services directly to customers. In this important book, author Kornel Terplan draws upon his 25 years of experience as a top global telecommunications consultant to provide telecom operations managers and developers with the expert information and guidance they need to make strategic decisions about OSS in their companies. He reviews protocols and technology for service support, explores best practices for service development and provisioning, and provides expert guidance on tools and human resources for the technical service provider. Throughout, Terplan's approach to teaching OSS principles and practices is to present a real business problem and then walk you through the best solution.

The ultimate business survival guide for telecommunications service providers

If you're involved in the telecommunications industry, then you know how hard it can be to develop effective support and billing systems amid the dizzying rate of change and rapidly evolving Internet technologies. In this book, Kornel Terplan teaches you how. He cuts through the deluge of protocols, business processes, and tools, and guides you through best practices and real-world solutions you'll need to succeed in the digital marketplace.

Using ample practical examples and flowcharts, Terplan shows you not only how to meet the technical and administrative challenges facing today's service providers, but also how to take advantage of emerging opportunities in voice, data, and wireless services. Whether you work with telcos, ISPs, ASPs, CLECs, or another type of service provider, you'll want to know what Terplan has to say about:
* The impact of different services and products on your company's infrastructure
* Traditional, enterprise, and Web-based protocols-from Telecommunication Management Network (TMN) to XML
* A wide range of customer issues, including QoS, customer relationship management, and the billing process
* Order processing and provisioning, from inventory and service development to security management
* Network operational processes, from performance monitoring to data collection and management
* How to integrate support, documentation, and management systems and choose from existing products
* Human resources as a critical success factor, whether in stream-lining job profiles or the art of team building
