Telco Automation Everywhere
Building the autonomous network
At long last the telecommunications industry is approaching the end goal of delivering Autonomous Networks. Built on the foundation of next-gen technologies, autonomous networks diminish the need for human intervention and reduce the collateral damage of human error.
Now entering its second year, Light Reading’s Telco Automation Everywhere brings together all the key players in the automation revolution -- communications service providers, systems integrators and OTTs. This forum provides attendees with the roadmap to deploy next-gen technologies (including virtualization, AI, machine learning, telemetry, RPA, analytics, automation middleware and security) as part of their automation strategy for production networks.
Key questions we will help you answer:
How can we...
make SD-WAN services more autonomous (e.g. using AI/ML to handle anomalies and unexpected events) to meet enterprise customers’ evolving needs?
network service lifecycle management automation (configuration, healing, onboarding, scaling, testing and verification, upgrading) adapt to enable the transition to 5G?
service providers reduce complexity and streamline their security processes (updating policies, running reports, analyzing results, finding hidden threats) while remaining in control?
the challenges that operators face in their telco cloud deployments (e.g. badly designed VNFs, incomplete DevOps tooling) and what is being done to address them?
CSPs exploit AI to reveal new insights enabling operators to run their networks more efficiently and reliably (e.g. route optimization, capacity planning, traffic prediction and dynamic optimization)?
