New year, new concerns. Operations and business support systems (OSS/BSS) for service providers have always been important, but not front and center in terms of coffee-machine chat. Change all that as the telecom industry continues its march to complete IP network transformations.

In the coming months, TM Forum members will offer their opinions on how the industry can reduce the costs and risks associated with creating and delivering profitable services and increase revenue from delivering vast amounts of content.
