Ericsson this week unveiled Intelligent Automation Platform, a network automation and optimization system that works with 4G and 5G networks, built with Open RAN principles in mind. The company says the new software platform helps any Communication Service Provider (CSP) with network automation and optimization, whether those network functions are operating on 4G or 5G Core networks.
Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), the software constantly monitors an operator’s Radio Access Network (RAN) to manage and optimize network conditions. It provides key automation tools operators need to effectively scale digitized RAN operations in a cloud-native environment. Intelligent Automation Platform is a Service Management and Orchestration system, a layer within the Open RAN architecture.
