Agile OSS/BSS Toolkit


Building the future of OSS/BSS with TM Forum

The Agile OSS toolkit provides a range of assets to support architects and other members of the IT community in realizing OSS/BSS solutions based on the latest IT practices which support current and anticipated future requirements of Digital Service Providers.

The TM Forum has released a complete blueprint for a platform for managing a multi-vendor Hybrid / NFV infrastructure as part of its Agile OSS toolkit. The blueprint brings together multiple elements into one set of tools in the TMF070 suite of documents. The suite includes key practical assets such as Open APIs, information models, best practices and deployment guides. Together these provide the standard interface required for multi vendor hybrid deployments. It should be noted that even at the first release this blueprint goes beyond the very basic management capabilities typically deployed with NFV today, and includes items such as:

Together these key capabilities begin to unlock the latent potential of the new technology in a standardised interoperable way, and allows realisation of the long-awaited business benefits.

Much of the work on Agile Operations was originally carried out in what is now called the ODA Project the key documents from this work are listed in the following table.
