Dima Alkin, VP, Service Assurance Solutions, North America, TEOCO

The range of 5G services now under development, from virtual reality, to production-critical automation, to massive-scale Internet of Things, has the potential to catalyze new value chains and operating models for every industry worldwide, and to underpin the long-term commercial future of network operators. To realize these benefits requires technology that will fundamentally change how networks are designed and operated, and how services are consumed.

To adapt to these changes, service assurance systems must evolve to meet the new demands introduced with 5G. This evolution will provide extended real-time analytic capabilities to allow the integration and processing of heterogeneous contextual information in order to trigger automated, closed-loop network healing and optimization processes. Operators implementing these capabilities will be able to meet demanding service level agreements across a range of dynamic and diverse service types in both consumer and enterprise markets.

Join Light Reading and TEOCO in this webinar to engage in a practical discussion about the service assurance evolution into a context-driven continued optimization process, and how machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) will help operators manage and operate the vast scale and diversity of services and network functions that characterizes 5G.
