OSS for Telecom Networks: An Introduction to Networks Management
Modern telecom networks are automated, and are run by OSS software or "operational support systems”. These manage modern telecom networks and provide the data that is needed in the day-to-day running of a telecom network. OSS software is also responsible for issuing commands to the network infrastructure to activate new service offerings, commence services for new customers, and detect and correct network faults.
The capabilities of OSS software are central to the service features that can be offered by telecom service providers. On the other hand, the limitations of OSS software translate into limitations on service offerings. It is important for telecom consultants, sales people and managers to understand OSS software. This book introduces those systems to non-technical readers, and will be essential reading for telecommunications professionals who need an easy-to-read overview of OSS systems, and also for those taking advanced undergraduate, postgraduate, and other courses in telecommunications.

Doesn't know even that whether i have a command on OSS to write a review for this book.But surely i understand with little experience of 6 years..That it was must have for clarifying your mis-conceptions like building things where they realy belong to. OSS required such literature of this short and this book has surely tried to fill that gap..For a new bee like me i am really surprised to understand the necessity of OSS.Really amazing Book..Thanks to the Author.
