5G Service Assurance: The Case for AIOps
As CSPs move to 5G, infrastructure, operations, and services are undergoing a massive paradigm shift. Legacy networks consist of multiple silos, for example, the RAN is typically a closed system supported by a single vendor. The same is true for the packet core. However, 5G networks are moving to a cloud-native architecture that is heterogeneous, highly distributed and has fuzzier boundaries. Many vendors provide software and hardware in shared environments, resulting in horizontal architectures and virtual network functions running across hybrid clouds. At the same time the new 5G enabled services raise the bar on quick delivery, rapid iteration, and a high level of service assurance. This transition creates new challenges for CSPs.
