Enabling AIOps for network and service assurance
Managing a fast-evolving network with hundreds of customers and thousands of services can be demanding. Yet it also can provide you with a wealth of information when harnessed with the right product. It can assure your services and help grow your business.
Imagine having easy access to all the information you need to anticipate—and even act upon—potential issues before services are disrupted or a service-level agreement is breached. Or consider the advantages of being able to dynamically reconfigure and optimize your network so the quality of your video content never falters—no matter how many users are on the network.
Blue Planet® Unified Assurance and Analytics (UAA) can help you focus on these initiatives—and much more.
“Deploying UAA for fault management enables us to leverage automation and AI to rapidly analyse and resolve network issues, as well as to proactively identify opportunities to enhance the reliability of our network. This is a key enabler in providing the fastest detection and resolution of network issues for exceptional customer service.”
Shane Sura, Vice President of Network Operations at Colt Technology Services
