Service Provider IT Report (http://www.serviceprovideritreport.com), the online community for service provider IT and OSS professionals, has highlighted the five key telecom software and network management industry trends that visitors to this year's Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona are set to encounter.

While the show will be awash with the latest radio access network (RAN), smartphone and applications developments, the increasingly important topic of next-generation network management, the impact of software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV), and other key service provider IT trends will be just as prominent and important.

"Telecoms used to be all about the network, but that's no longer the case. The network infrastructure is still critically important, of course, but the software systems and IT platforms that help communications service providers run their networks, identify problems, develop new services and analyze terabytes of data are equally as important," said Ray Le Maistre, Editor-in-Chief of Service Provider IT Report and Light Reading (www.lightreading.com).
