Automation has been a target for network operators for many years now, and the growing complexity and fluidity of networks – as the industry adopts ever-increasing levels of virtualization – only increases the urgency of this. From optimizing network RoI, to accelerating network and service roll-outs, and monetizing advanced new revenue streams, automation today is critical to business success.
Today, advancements in key technologies – such as ML/AI; open and cloud-native architectures; and a maturing landscape of orchestration frameworks and capabilities – has finally brought the potential for a step-change in automation for the full network lifecycle, from planning to monetization. But network operators around the world continue to face ever-increasing OPEX bills; bringing together a fragmented vendor landscape, disparate architectures and legacy technologies is proving costly and time-consuming.
A new approach is needed. And the industry is thirsty for it, as demonstrated in a Network lifecycle automation: analysis from the field, a blog from earlier this year. This followed the commissioning of Forrester Consulting to interview 104 senior wireless strategy decision-makers around the world to investigate their understanding of Network Lifecycle Automation – or NLA – and how they plan to adopt it.
But what is Network Lifecycle Automation?
Network Lifecycle Automation: an end-to-end approach, from investment to monetization
Infovista is the world’s first independent software vendor providing a carrier-grade, cloud-native Network Lifecycle Automation platform designed for the 5G era. Our end-to-end solutions enable not only different teams within operations, but all of your departments – across planning, deployment, operations and monetization – to work with a single, interoperable platform of applications that we call the Network Lifecycle Automation (NLA) portfolio.
NLA unlocks the full potential of 5G by dissolving traditional system silos, and augmenting processes across the lifecycle with insights, intelligence and automation so you can: accelerate network roll-outs while targeting investments for maximum returns; establish and protect new enterprise revenue streams; prioritize operations to optimize customer experience; and introduce automated decision-making to optimize costs without sacrificing performance.
