OSS Technologies was founded in 2002 with the aim of developing Telecommunications Management Solutions for Original Equipment Manufacturers in South Africa. The OSS Element Management System was combined with electronics in the form of serial to ethernet convertors to address the issue of connectivity and manageability of legacy equipment.

The original OSS EMS was implemented in Powerline Communications projects. The solution evolved into an embedded local configuration management solution, with the same solution being used in a goldmine for fragmentation analysis comunications.

OSS Technologies was revamped in 2012 to deliver telecommunications projects in Southern Africa. The telecommunications management skillsets are expanded to optical fibre implementations, building management through control and building management systems. Our electronics development still focusses on connectivity solutions, with the internet of things fitting into the origial mould of our intelligent network element agent devlopments.

It remains the goal of OSS Technologies to remain vendor independent.
