Unique approach to self-learning networks combines multiple capabilities including transfer learning, smart telemetry and network function orchestration
Most networks today are still managed by static rules that cannot scale to all possible issues and can only detect faults that have known signatures. Instead, Machine Learning (ML) algorithms can surface unexpected patterns in traffic flows and make recommendations to avert problems. Allowing network engineers to express “what” needs to be done in a natural language then letting the infrastructure determine “how”, further simplifies and streamlines operations.
Walid Negm, Chief Technology Officer at Aricent said, “The story of an event or alarm that impacts a service is extremely hard to stitch together. A network engineer is swamped with trouble tickets that are irrelevant, not prioritized or lack context. If the “devil is in the details” then why not auto-enrich tickets? More importantly, why not predict the onset of a fault or delay — to keep customers happy.” Negm added, “We believe that companies must augment their problem solvers so that they can be freed to innovate. That means intelligent “augmentors” such as design simulation tools, test automation and auto-resolution to drive-up productivity gains”.
