Huawei and Nokia Solutions and Networks Sign Bi-lateral Agreement for Operations Support System Interoperability Initiative
Huawei announced the signing of cross-license agreement for an Operations Support System Interoperability Initiative (OSSii) along with Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN).
The OSSii aims to simplify interoperability between OSS systems in a multi-vendor environment. OSSii will provide easy access to interfaces that earlier were subject to restricted use, and will enable interoperability testing services to a wider industry community. The parties’ general guiding principles for the OSSii are openness, fairness, reasonableness and non-discriminatory treatment.
In May 2013, Huawei and NSN took part in the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for OSSii. While the MoU set the general guiding principles of the initiative in the meantime Huawei and NSN reached an agreement on the technical details of configuration, performance, and fault northbound interfaces for Radio Access, Circuit Core and Packet Core.
