Ericsson Down 10% – OSS BSS Gets the Blame

OSS and BSS sales take a dive while ‘following the transition from legacy to new products’.

Telecomlead has reported on Ericsson’s January business report, announcing a 10% drop in revenues year-on-year. The mega telco supplier is still managing to do $25 billion in business though.

Of that 10%-or-so drop in revenue, OSS/BSS gets a special shout-out in Ericsson’s own press release:

  • Support Solutions, the division that includes OSS/BSS was down 39% in the 4th quarter
  • And in ‘targeted markets’ the quarter saw a 7% drop in revenue, “mainly impacted by lower sales in OSS and BSS following the transition from legacy to new products.”

All the speeds and feeds, here.
