MTOSI and OASIS are standards that enable integration of
distributed applications using SOA, discuss both of these standards.
Multi-Technology Operations System Interface (MTOSI) is a standard for
implementing interfaces between OSSs. Service providers (carriers) use
multiple Operational Support Systems (OSS) to manage complex networks.
Since the various parts of the network must interact, so must the OSSs. It is
standardized by the Telemanagement Forum (TM Forum). The TMF
Frameworx provides a set of reference models that aid in analyzing and
designing next generation BSS and OSS solutions that may utilize the MTOSI
The main use for Multi-Technology Operations Systems Interface (MTOSI) is
as an interface between Operations Systems. A given product will typically
support either the client or server side of an MTOSI interface.
MTOSI is an interesting concept for organisations that have multi-layered
network (ie SONET/SDH/DWDM through to higher order layers such as IP
and above with various different EMS) and/or multi-vendor networks as well
as a variety of OSS/BSS tools. The theory is that commonality / consistency
between interfaces should allow the various management applications (eg
EMS, OSS, BSS, etc) to be integrated more quickly and easily.
