For some years the telecommunication business has been facing a radical change. Internet introduction in conjunction with fixed and mobile broadband fuelled the entrance into the "Information age". New entrants into the telecommunication business are acting fast in the digital marketplace, set up new business models and services and hence reducing the operator income. By comparing successful new entrants like Google, Apple and Nokia it is striking that they all have things in common: Fast service introduction in conjunction with innovative technologies; Control point(s) (CPs) or service control point(s) (SCPs) as strategic core; A digital marketplace for their own and tested 3rd party products. From our perspective it is vital for an Operator to provide appropriate control points as well in order to be competitive and enable new business opportunities. Therefore we will concentrate on these topics in order to verify if Next Generation Operations Systems and Software (NGOSS) could support the operator in reducing costs, reacting faster in digital markets, fostering operator control - service control points and supporting new business models. In combination with a lean operator approach we will introduce the concept of an operator Ecozone.
