VIAVI partners with Google Cloud to provide cloud-based network intelligence and optimisation
Viavi Solutions Inc. has announced the availability of NITRO® AIOps on Google Cloud, creating an innovative solution that leverages VIAVI cutting-edge network analytics solutions and Google Cloud’s native service capabilities. The collaboration aims to address critical challenges faced by Communication Service Providers (CSPs) and unlock new opportunities for network intelligence and optimization. The solution will be demonstrated at TMForum’s DTW23 – Ignite in Copenhagen, September 19-21.
Digital transformation has set the industry on the journey to realise a new operational model that leverages artificial intelligence, machine learning, and network orchestration and automation. NITRO AIOps empowers CSPs to evolve their legacy NOC to Dark NOC and delivers end-to-end network visibility across a wide range of network platforms, including those for cloud and IoT.
The critical challenges addressed by NITRO AIOps include:
1. Network Performance Optimisation: NITRO AIOps enables CSPs to proactively monitor and optimize network performance. By identifying potential bottlenecks and anomalies, CSPs can take timely actions to ensure seamless network operations and consistent, high-quality service delivery.
2. Enhanced Customer Experience: With granular insights into customer behaviour and usage patterns, the solution allows CSPs to tailor services to individual preferences. This results in personalised offerings, improved customer satisfaction, and increased loyalty.
3. Capacity Planning and Resource Management: The solution’s AI-driven analytics aids CSPs in effective capacity planning and resource management. By optimising network resources, CSPs can achieve better resource utilisation and cost efficiency.
4. Real-Time Anomaly Detection: AIOps empowers CSPs with real-time issue detection, enabling swift response to network anomalies and potential service disruptions, minimising downtime and enhancing network reliability.
5. Predictive Maintenance and Quality Assurance: By predicting potential network issues and faults, the solution helps CSPs adopt a proactive approach to maintenance and quality assurance, ultimately leading to improved service quality and reduced operational costs.
