Ericsson signs OSS license agreements with Cisco and Tektronix


Telecom network provider Ericsson has signed license agreements with Cisco Systems and Tektronix Communications-subsidiary NETSCOUT SYSTEMS.

As part of the agreement, Ericsson will license its OSS interfaces for integration with Cisco self-optimizing network (SON) products and Tektronix Communications TrueCall geoanalytics platform.

Initiated by Ericsson, Nokia and Huawei in May 2013, this OSS Interoperability Initiative (OSSii)  promotes OSS interoperability between different vendor equipment through the exposure of OSS interfaces and network data.

OSSii enables pre-verification of products for new network releases, and provides lifecycle management for interfaces. In addition, it allows both OSSii partners and third parties to support network releases without lengthy and complex integration projects.
