The stars are aligning for the transformation of the communications network. The opportunities offered by the O-RAN RIC are combining with advances in AI to enhance the automation of network optimisation.
The upshot will be maximised service performance and heightened user experience for consumers and enterprise users which will allow immersive services and advanced industrial applications to flourish.
In this O-RAN white paper, we explore – and answer – today’s crucial question and highlight on of the most exciting AI use cases in telecoms. How can automation overcome the complexity of O-RAN networks to deliver this broad set of high-performance use cases?
The O-RAN white paper in summary
The paper focuses on three take aways:
- O-RAN RIC and AI are the keys to automating network optimisation that will maximise service performance and transform user experience
- The resulting improvements will drive network cost reduction, efficient energy consumption and generate new service revenues – without invading user privacy
- Distinctive offerings will be created from standard telecoms equipment by integrating wider data sources with low level network data – but will require vendors with deep experience in service design, data mining, AI and the RAN
