UFB BSS/OSS Business Interaction Framework Documents

Introduction

The TCF UFB BSS/OSS Business Interaction Framework Iteration 3 and its supporting artefacts published 14 August 2014. This version supersedes previously published iteration 1 and 2.

The processes in the BIF are defined to meet industry agreed Business Requirements which are articulated in a separate supporting document.

The business transactions are described in a series of business scenarios and interaction components, and include the definition of the touch points for the exchange of information between RSPs and the LFCs.

BIF Data Model Realisation and Design Guidance provides design guidance for interpreting the BIF Data Model during implementation of SSP and B2B applications.

This is a living document and will be updated accordingly to support future iterations of the UFB BSS OSS BIF.
