5G challenges addressed by the cognitive technology revolution
Accelerate 5G time to market & network performance leadership
Operators that launch new technology, investing first in providing the best user experience, get significant revenue upsides.
5G frontrunners achieved 15% revenue upsides (+9.9% in 4G) while the rest remained flat. The market leader on network quality enjoys about 30% higher ARPU & lower churn
Build with precision
As ARPU stagnates, the ability to make informed expansion decisions that maximize return on investment is key to survive.
RAN equipment accounts for approximately 20% of mobile operator’s capex. Planning & design need to leverage deeper analytics that consider end users and competitors, to predict needs and optimize TCO while providing the best return on network experience.
Transform to cope with complexity
5G use cases place heavy demands on the network. The wide variety of requirements, paired with a growing number of sites, layers of spectrum and control parameters, gives rise to an overly complex system and need to simplify the approach while delivering on SLA.
AI’s speed, scale and accuracy break the boundaries of what is possible with automation. The replacement of traditional tools with AI-powered software solutions is the catalyst to control operational expenses while delivering a next-generation network experience.
