AI intent-based operations: The key to building autonomous networks – Ericsson

Bringing autonomy to your network through intent-based operations

Implementing a service intent manager for AI intent-based operations is an important foundational step in the journey toward autonomous network operations.

As the telecommunications industry become ever more complex, service providers need to be able to manage the challenges involved in delivering tailored 5G differentiated connectivity, while continuing to meet the strict service level agreements (SLAs) they already have in place.

With the advent of new technologies such as 5G network slicing, there is a need for service providers to deploy adaptive automation. One solution is AI intent-based operations, which enables machines to manage conflict within multi-layer 5G technology, dynamically handling slices and partitioning traffic to meet business requirements. This improves agility and enhances efficiency by managing customers and enterprises’ intents efficiently – as well as by reducing the maintenance period for upgrades.

Implementing AI intent-based operations enhances the overall level of autonomy and drives the evolution from traditional data-driven operations toward more autonomous and intent-driven operations.

Unleashing the power of AI – e& UAE

This whitepaper delves into the AI journey of e& UAE

In an era defined by rapid technological evolution, e& UAE emerges as a pioneering force, strategically navigating the dynamic landscape of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Generative AI (GenAI) within the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This whitepaper delves into e& UAE’s comprehensive journey, unveiling its pivotal role in shaping the trajectory of AI adoption in the country.

From deploying advanced analytics and machine learning to fostering partnerships that enhance cloud and AI capabilities, the organisation is committed to continuous innovation. The document delves into the strategic advantage gained by e& UAE through the adoption of GenAI. It demonstrates the organisation’s holistic approach beyond mere upgrades to position it as a strategic enabler, ensuring future readiness and sustainability. By weaving AI seamlessly into various operational domains, from sales and customer experience to telco networks and corporate functions, e& UAE exemplifies a forward-thinking stance in embracing transformative technologies and shaping the digital future of the UAE.

This whitepaper specifically focuses on e& UAE, the group’s telecommunications arm in the country. It does not cover the AI initiatives, use cases, and innovations across other e& companies such as e& life and e& enterprise or other geographies outside the UAE.

Telco to Techco

Report Snapshot

Communication service providers (CSPs) have been trying to reinvent themselves for many years. First, they tried to become media companies as video delivery switched from satellite and terrestrial to broadband. Then they tried to become digital service providers (DSPs), expanding beyond the confines of connectivity into adjacent domains such as cloud, finance, and security. Lately, the talk has been of converting from telcos to techcos, with one eye on the heady valuations given to companies that purport to provide technology, even though this may be as simple as a food delivery app.

The telecommunications industry has undergone major transformations over the years. As many Communications Service Providers (CSPs) continue to evolve and virtualize their networks, the introduction of 5G brings in another set of complexities and concepts. With enhanced connectivity and new services, such as network slicing coming to the fore, CSPs face challenges and bottlenecks that stifle innovation and hinder the delivery of End-to-End (E2E) services to customers…

Unleash Experience-First Networking with Juniper Paragon Automation

Free Download. Unleash Experience-First Networking with Juniper Paragon Automation by Brendan Gibbs, Vice President, Automated WAN Solutions, Juniper Networks.

For service providers to survive and thrive in tomorrow’s 5G/multi-cloud services landscape, they need a twofold strategy: focus on providing a differentiable customer experience and optimize the network and its operation for greater efficiency. At Juniper, we refer to this as experience-first networking, and in many ways, it has become more than just a strategy for us, it has become our true north as a company. This resource describes Juniper’s approach to delivering Experience-First Networking using our Paragon Automation.

Raise your hand if you’ve heard of or even been part of a program that was to leverage AI for amazing returns and yet failed after exceeding budget and under delivering on promised outcomes. A large percentage of AI programs and efforts either die on the vine, or flop halfway through the delivery cycle. Even for those that are implemented, the cost, and time, to develop the use case often seems to dwarf the return…
