network automation

If CSPs want to unlock the potential of 5G networks, they need automation. Automation reduces error in network operations and service management and accelerates tasks. Automation benefits CSPs in three areas:Service Creation – The ability to design, build and test new revenue-generating services using automation reduces development costs and time-to-market.

Revenue Generation – The ability to rapidly deploy, provision and orchestrate network functionality and services across networks and rapidly deliver them to end-users increases revenue and improves time-to-cash.
Network Performance – The ability to monitor networks in real-time, to locate, identify and resolve network and security issues as they arise increases network availability and enhances customer satisfaction.
Design & Test: designing and testing new network components and services for deployment is time consuming, resource intensive and expensive. Automation of the new product development process has a huge operational impact and is often an automation starting point. More services can be rolled out faster, and at a lower cost.

Deployment & Orchestration: the deployment of network components on a virtualized infrastructure (NFVi) is a common automation start point. Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) and Cloud-Native Functions (CNFs) can be deployed automatically and scaled to meet changing demand using an orchestration system. These are the foundations that complex services are built upon.
Monitor & Assure: network optimization and fault management are obvious targets for automation. Self-optimizing networks (SON) improves network efficiency. The ability to analyse network performance and respond to issues or outages in real-time has a huge impact on customer satisfaction. Automated, or "closed loop" assurance provides immediate operational improvements and is also a popular automation starting point.More info: network automation
