If AI and Automation is the answer, what was the question?
5G presents an inflection point where the network will set the stage for data-rich services and sophisticated cloud applications, delivered faster and with lower latency, and where the wireless communication technology is driven by a multitude of applications and expected use cases. 5G brings greater opportunities, expectations and complexities. With the rising network complexity, we believe that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will also play an increasingly important role in network design, development, management and operations. Our artificial intelligence is applied to solving the right challenges for telecom service providers, by creating value where it matters the most. Working closely with our customers’ challenges, data and products, we are providing them with a different approach to getting value from their networks. So, again, if AI is the answer, what was the question?
