Closed-Loop Automation for 5G Slice Assurance

View publication


The telecommunications industry is undergoing a fundamental transformation with the advent of 5G and edge computing. The stringent requirements on performance, agility, and scalability, together with technologies such as network slicing that permit deploying multiple virtual networks on the same physical network infrastructure, is fostering the adoption of cloud-native or containerized network functions on open platforms such as Kubernetes. Operators are seeking to improve operational efficiency and deliver innovative high quality services to their customers at low cost. This demonstration will showcase zero-touch provisioning and closed-loop orchestration of network slices with the aid of AI-based operational analytics for anomaly detection, root-cause analysis and automated remediation.
