Indian multinational telecommunications services company Bharti Airtel (Airtel) has announced the roll-out of Avanseus’ predictive maintenance (PdM) solution across its operations.
According to a press release from communications solutions provider, Avanseus PdM uses AI analytics to offer actionable operational insights based on the telco’s network data. It enables Airtel’s teams to proactively ‘Predict and Prevent’ incidents in the network. In addition, the solution is cloud-native, containerized, and ready for Airtel’s 5G roll-out.
The PdM solution forms part of Airtel’s advanced automation strategy in which machine learning (ML) algorithms and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are used to support the move toward zero-fault, zero-touch networks.
The expansion follows the successful trial and commercial deployment of the solution across Airtel’s transport, enterprise, and core networks.
Giuseppe Donagemma, Avanseus Chairman, said, “The adoption of the Avanseus solution positions Airtel as a global leader in the use of AI within the telecommunications sector. The company is now at the forefront among operators in deploying innovative and game-changing technologies."
Giuseppe added: "By using the Avanseus PdM solution to predict network faults before they occur, Airtel will be able to achieve greater network uptime, improve operational efficiency, increase revenues, and most importantly, improve the network experience for their customers. The solution is an important enabler of digital transformation in network operations.”
Airtel claims that it is India’s largest integrated telecom provider and the second-largest mobile operator in Africa.
