Platform-As-A-Service (PaaS) systems offer customers a rich environment in which to build, deploy, and run applications. Today’s PaaS offerings are tailored mainly to the needs of web and mobile applications developers, and involve a fairly rigid stack of components and features. The vision of the H2020 5GPPP Phase 2 Next Generation Platform-as-a-Service (NGPaaS) project is to enable “build-to-order” customized PaaSes, tailored to the needs of a wide range of use cases with telcograde
5G characteristics. This paper sets out the salient and innovative features of NGPaaS and explores the impacts on Operational Support Systems and Business Support Systems (OSS/BSS), moving from fixed centralized stacks to a much more flexible and modular distributed architecture.
