What is digital business support system (digital BSS)?

A digital business support system (digital BSS) provides an elastic, modern, and convergent system in a virtualized network environment, enabling CSPs to automate business processes and introduce differentiated services. The digital business support system also enables telecom operators to leverage 5G opportunities through modern and advanced 5G use cases. A BSS transformation helps modernize fixed and wireless networks. And since a digital BSS is modular, it can be rolled out in phases, mitigating migration risks.

What are the uses of telecom BSS?

A telecom BSS enables communications service providers to create, launch, deliver and manage their services. A digital BSS provides a single convergent platform for efficient revenue management through process automation and digitization. The telecom BSS lets telecom operators offer innovative personalized offerings and boost CX with streamlined sales, customer life cycle management, omnichannel customer support, advanced partnerships, inventory management, enterprise services, and more.
