The telecommunications industry has been undergoing a  significant transformation driven by increasing complexity, scale, and the need  to provide seamless, high-quality services to a growing number of users.  Automation is a way to address challenges posed by modern telecom networks.

When people typically think of automation, it is often  seen as a collection of scripts or tools coded in a programming language to  streamline manual tasks. Nevertheless, in recent years, there have been  remarkable advancements in what can be achieved through automation. Automation has  broadened its reach from simple Command Line Interface (CLI) commands to  automating processes, workflows, operations, ordering, auditing,  troubleshooting, ticketing and so on.

Telecom  Service Providers can gain an edge over their competitors with enhanced  capabilities by deploying automation in various functions. Let’s talk about  some of the use cases:

  • Efficient network planning  and deployment
    • Leverage network analytics and  artificial intelligence to gain insights into network performance and patterns.  This information can help optimize network design and capacity planning,  ultimately leading to faster and more efficient deployments.
  • Intent-based networking
    • Which means  they can automatically translate high-level business requirements into network  configurations. Complementing this approach with tools like “Zero Touch  Provisioning” (ZTP) eliminates manual configurations and  aligns the network with business objectives, accelerating service deployment. In  recent network deployments, ZTP has enabled network rollout at double the speed,  providing 40% savings in productivity/man hours.
  • Automated fault detection  and self-healing:
    • Automation can also be used to detect  network faults and potential issues proactively. Automated self-healing  mechanisms can then be triggered to resolve problems quickly, minimizing  downtime and service disruptions.
  • Network Optimization:
    • Optimization  of networks is required throughout the life cycle to maximize performance. Many  areas like predictive maintenance, performance-based optimization, proactive  capacity augmentation, load balancing etc. can give service providers an edge  in operations. By automating the complete process, we experienced 60% in time  savings when optimizing a recent customer’s network.

Our leadership in technology and deep understanding of  network characteristics, especially in the local context, enables us to provide  the most optimum solutions as per customer needs and achieve efficient  outcomes.

We adopt an end-to-end approach, working in tandem  with service providers to achieve efficient outcomes. With our professional services  automation offerings, our customers across the globe have saved up to 90% of their  time, which used to be spent in key activities like planning, preparation, and  execution of network transformation or other operational initiatives.
