Preemptive Network Maintenance

Prevent network outages

Avoid costly service disruptions

Existing solutions for troubleshooting and resolving problems in the network were developed to support static networks and services—not today’s network, which is increasingly dynamic and complex. Reactive processes based on scrutinizing events and alarms aren't enough. You need to predict potential service issues—before they happen—and preemptively resolve them before they impact your customers.

Blue Planet® Preemptive Network Maintenance (PMN), a Proactive Network Operations (PNO) solution, uses advanced Machine Learning (ML) algorithms, combined with policy and orchestration, to do just that. And the best part? Your customers will never know there was a potential network problem.

The solution is ideal for service providers who have (or are thinking about building) their own data lakes and want to experience the powerful benefit of AI-driven closed-loop automation to ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction—while increasing staff productivity and reducing network troubleshooting costs.

Combined with specialized professional services that provide AI expertise and support key system integration points, PMN  is designed for easy evaluation and rapid deployment, helping providers realize key business outcomes quickly—without the inherent risk, delay, and costs associated with testing, qualifying, and implementing alternative solutions.
