EnterpriseWeb announced that it will premiere the first telco-grade demonstration of generative AI for network service orchestration today at Informa’s Big 5G event in Austin, Texas. The company, which ran the telecom industry’s first Network Function Virtualization proof-of-concept in 2013 and is known for its advanced automation capabilities, partnered with KX to enable next generation AI-powered Telecom operations.
A drone flying cell tower is a small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) equipped with a 5G base station, which can be deployed to provide coverage in remote or hard-to-reach areas. These flying cell towers can be rapidly deployed and offer several advantages over traditional stationary cell towers, including increased flexibility, faster deployment, and the ability to cover larger areas with fewer towers.
In order to maximize revenue and add more value, operators must expand their connectivity offerings beyond speed and customer experience; they need to expand their footprint into edge cloud platforms and AI-based solution stacks. Doing this will help them secure a larger share of the potential profits.
System integrators have a strong role in helping operators and enterprises in planning, building, and managing complex network environments while maximizing performance and minimizing costs by effectively deploying solutions and technologies from diverse ecosystem players. With their deep technical knowledge, competence, and wider industry experience, they can offer tailored solutions that enable the successful deployment of public and private networks and ensure long-term success for those organizations that partner with them.
All MANOs will include network service orchestration in their ambit. VM-based VNFs will continue to find acceptability on account of strong legacy among telcos and enterprises alike. And K8s is here to stay.
What is a telco cloud? How is the difference between telco and IT cloud? What are the industry solutions to migrate to telco cloud? Who are the leading telco and IT cloud vendors? What are their solution offerings and strategies? How can telcos successfully migrate to telco cloud?
With 5G and Edge computing, there is an explosion of management complexity because there are hundreds of software instances (that include edge applications and private 5G applications), tens of thousands of edge locations, and tens of infrastructure providers. Existing approaches and solutions are not able to adequately scale to address this complexity.
Telco 5G network & IT teams are under pressure to deliver applications and services faster, out-maneuver competitors, and provide exceptional user experiences while facing tighter budgets and a severe lack of cloud specialist skills. While the move to cloud-native network operations is relatively new for operators, it’s old hat for enterprises and web/hyper-scalers.
Nephio is Kubernetes-based intent-driven automation of network functions and the underlying infrastructure that supports those functions.
The Dickensian duality succinctly characterizes where we are with 5G — pushing towards monetization is challenging, commercially-available network slicing is fledgling at best, but 5G promises rewards for those enterprising and persistent.
