Operations Support System (OSS)
Operations Support System (OSS)
A comprehensive and modern Operations Support System (OSS) for seamless end-to-end management of network operations. As one of the industry’s leading OSS solutions, Alepo’s OSS Solution includes a gamut of network services and provides a holistic view of each of these services, including inventory, configurations, fault management, service provisioning, service assurance, and more. The solution is a result of Alepo’s 15+ years of expertise in the OSS BSS (business support system) domain and having helped several leading global service providers maximize their ROI.
What is an operations support system (OSS)?
The Operations Support System (OSS) helps telecom operators control end-to-end network operations, easily managing network complexities to achieve operational excellence. It helps manage hybrid networks and technologies, enables automation of services, and supports complete fiber network management. It works with the business support system (BSS) to ensure business success, helping enhance capabilities and enabling a customer-first digital experience that is essential for operator success.
What is OSS transformation?
As next-generation technologies permeate, telecom operators need to overhaul or replace their operations support system to help support modern and advanced use cases – what is called OSS transformation. A digital transformation to a modern, comprehensive, and NFV-compliant OSS facilitates support for the management of next-gen network complexities, improves and automates processes, enhances customer experience, lowers OPEX, and maximizes ROI. It is especially important for operators looking to implement 5G or introduce 5G services on legacy networks.
An End-To-End OSS Solution
Manage Network Complexities
- A centralized dashboard of reports and analytics

Support A Hybrid Network
A unified platform for hybrid networks, Alepo’s OSS solution provides end-to-end visibility of access and transport networks. The dashboard gives a single-pane view of the entire network.
The OSS architecture is compliant with network functions virtualization (NFV), enabling service innovation and operational automation. It helps telecom operators manage key aspects of the network, including wider network infrastructure comprising physical equipment and virtualized network functions, as well as enabling a smooth interface between front-end customer portals and the underlying orchestration layer.
