Telecom IT Spending To Exceed $30 Billion in 2005, Says Insight Research.BOONTON, N.J. -- The global market for operations support systems Operations Support Systems (also called Operational Support Systems or OSS) are computer systems used by telecommunications service providers. The term OSS most frequently describes "network systems" dealing with the telecom network itself, supporting processes such (OSS Oss (ôs), city (1994 pop. 62,141), North Brabant prov., S Netherlands; chartered 1399. It is a significant industrial center.

Operations Support Systems 2005-2010, telecommunications network A telecommunications network is a of telecommunications links and nodes arranged so that messages may be passed from one part of the network to another over multiple links and through various nodes. operators worldwide are expected to increase their investment in OSSes at a compounded rate of nearly four percent over the next five years, while North American investment in the computing and software systems used to acquire, serve, and bill customers will not top 2.7 percent over the same period. Telecommunications service providers will be investing selectively in areas showing the greatest potential for a fast rate of return, including wireless 3G data services and high-speed residential broadband access See broadband and wireless broadband. .
"For the first time since our coverage of OSS system sales System sales is a business term used in the franchising industry. Franchisors provide supplies, marketing and administration services to franchisees in return for a part of the franchisees' revenues. Some franchisors also operate some outlets directly. revenue began in 1990, we are seeing OSS systems and professional services sales revenue growing slower than overall telecommunications services revenue because of the continued industry restructuring," says INSIGHT president Robert Rosenberg. "Service providers continue to spend, but they will only put their money into systems that support future revenue growth such as RF planning and engineering tools for high-speed wireless data or network management tools for gigabit Ethernet, IP, and wavelength services," concluded Rosenberg.
Operations Support Systems 2005-2010 forecasts global IT infrastructure spending for billing, customer care, planning/engineering, provisioning/inventory, trouble repair, network management, business management, and workforce management systems. It also projects the professional services expenditures required to implement those systems by type of carrier in four regions: North America; Europe, the Middle East, and Africa; Asia/Pacific; and Latin America/Caribbean.
