What is OSP?

OSP stands for Other Service Providers. The OSP consists of services that have become quite widespread in the contemporary marketing world. A few of these “other services” include the following:

  • Tele-banking
  • E-commerce
  • Call centers/BPOs
  • Tele education
  • Network Operation Center
  • Other related IT-enabled services
  • Tele-trading

Obtaining a license has been made mandatory for the OSPs by the Department of Telecommunication as per the New Telecom Policy (NTP), 1999.

The Telecom Commission formulated the terms and conditions of OSPs in the year 2000. As per these terms and conditions, the OSPs are not allowed to provide switched telephony. The OSPs can utilize telecom resources from authorized telecom service providers.

Types of OSPs

  • International OSP

    These are the OSPs that provide application services beyond the national boundaries of India.

  • Domestic OSP

    These are the OSPs that provide application within the boundaries of India.

  • Point of Presence

    This is the location where an OSP places equipment to act as an extension of the OSP center for the collection of telecom traffic related to the application services.

  • Hot sites

    This is the standby OSP center of the company or the third party that has been registered with the Department of Telecommunications. This standby is regularly updated and is kept ready for taking over the operations of the OSP centers in case there is any disaster or failure.

Interconnectivity between an international OSP and domestic OSP is not allowed. However, interconnectivity between two international OSPs or two domestic OSPs is permitted, provided they belong to the same Group Companies.

OSP Registration

In order to start an OSP center, the license has to be obtained from the Department of Telecommunication. It is necessary that the entity should be an incorporated business entity for getting the OSP license. The entity has to be a registered company as per the provisions of the Companies Act, 2013.

The OSP registration shall be done as per their location by the Telecom Enforcement, Resource, and Monitoring (TERM) Cells.
