Quantifying and collecting the benefits of IP network automation
Date / Time: Wednesday, October 20, 2021, 10:00 a.m New York / 3:00 p.m London
sponsored by

Network automation is a key driver for improved network services agility, greater operational efficiency and increased network availability. While pointing at those benefits is easy, quantifying them can be much more challenging.

Analysys Mason collected data points from several operators worldwide who have moved network automation from theory to practice, and created a model to quantify the benefits that can be expected from automating IP networks.

This webinar will provide a summary of those benefits. We will also explain how operators can accelerate the deployment of network automation projects to get the benefits at reduced risk.

Key topics include:

  • Quantified benefits of IP network automation: cost avoidance, reduction in labor time and error processing, improvement in time to revenue and mean time to repair.
  • IP network automation across categories of service fulfilment, network lifecycle management, and network and service assurance
  • Automation tools and services
  • Operator cases studies
