Tech Mahindra Ltd., a provider of digital transformation, consulting and business reengineering services and solutions, has announced netOps.ai, Tech Mahindra’s Network Automation and Managed Services Framework. The company has conducted a live demonstration of its netOps.ai framework at Mobile World Congress 2019.
Around the world, Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are preparing for the 5G revolution. In hopes of accelerating 5G network adoption, Tech Mahindra has automated all key network life cycle stages of netOps.ai.
“Tech Mahindra’s netOps.ai Framework will significantly boost the speed of 5G network rollouts. Communication service providers across the globe will be able to accelerate their 5G Time-to-Market and simultaneously reduce their cost of ownership by automating every aspect of their network lifecycle,” says Manish Vyas, President CME and CEO of Network Services, Tech Mahindra. “We are preparing to witness the real-world impact of 5G and are collaborating with multiple partners from different industry verticals to develop compelling, practical use cases.”
Some features of netOps.ai include the automation of the Telco Cloud Deployment of different personas and one-click deployment. Additionally, the company has automated VNF onboarding and end-to-end network integration with integration accelerators in its VNF-Xchange. They have also implemented DevOps Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipeline for 5G networks in a multi-vendor environment. Lastly, the automation of network services with orchestration include closed-loop-control implementation for self-healing and auto-scaling.
With 5G, CSPs will be able to differentially price their network and dynamically slice. netOps.ai has been designed to deliver service agility at scale, by automating all lifecycle stages, and also by keeping the networks continuously updated. This will also demonstrate service automation for Private 5G Networks-as-a-Service by automating Network Slicing.
“If operators can deliver at scale, at pace, and at low unit cost, 5G has great potential to contribute to business transformation across diverse industries. We believe the economic and technical case for advanced services, delivered over complex infrastructure, is underpinned by operators’ ability to automate operating processes, with CI/CD models that support multi-vendor environments critical to this,” says Gabriel Brown, Principal Analyst, Mobile Networks & 5G, Heavy Reading.
