Legacy Inventory Management Systems Could Cause a Bottleneck in OSS for Automated Process Flow and Orchestration

Most vendors’ legacy inventory management systems are not currently set up to realise the benefits of network function virtualisation (NFV). However, the next generation of real-time dynamic inventory management systems will support automation and orchestration over hybrid physical–virtual networks. 

This report:

  •     evaluates the need for vendors to evolve their inventory management systems to effectively support these hybrid networks
  •     discusses the timeframe in which these new solutions will be required by communications service providers (CSPs)
  •     provides an analysis of the implications of real-time dynamic inventory on fulfilment processes.
