NGOSS Vs OSS/J

NGOSS (New Generation Operations Systems and Software):

1) The NGOSS program has focused on the business and systems aspects of OSS-solution delivery (essentially the problem and solution statement)

2) The NGOSS initiative has delivered business-process and system frameworks, methodologies, UML information models, and resources to help members in the development of NGOSS-compliant components

3) NGOSS concentrating on the technology-neutral aspects

OSS/J (OSS through Java):

1) OSS/J program has focused on the implementation and
deployment aspects (essentially the solution realization and deployment using Java technology).

2) The OSS/J initiative has delivered freely-available, testable API specifications, reference implementations, and test kits

3) OSS/J concentrating on the technology-specific aspects of network management.

4) The OSS/J initiative has delivered freely-available, testable API specifications, reference implementations, and test kits

Both programs have the ultimate goal of promoting the delivery of reusable OSS solutions to service providers. As the two programs evolved, it became clear, at a high level, that the programs were complementary: NGOSS concentrating on the technology-neutral aspects and OSS/J concentrating on the technology-specific aspects of network management. Collaboration has been demonstrated with the development of OSS/J Core Business Entities that are based on TM Forum Shared Information and Data Model entities.
