Oracle makes another OSS move

Following its acquisition of MetaSolv and other efforts to expand into telecom operational support system activities (including what now appears to be the near-but-not-quite acquisition of BEA Systems), Oracle Corp has developed a new resource management system based on the TeleManagement Forum's Shared Information/Data model. The solution can help give carriers a unified view of network resources, thereby improving their ability to automate service provisioning.

Oracle isn't the only busy OSS vendor. Several OSS technology firms announced new products last week at the TM Forum's Management World Americas event in Dallas.
