5G is here, and it brings additional complexity of Multiple RATs (Radio Access Technologies), multiple RAN vendors, multiple spectrum bands, Heterogeneous Networks (a.k.a HetNet) support, as well as Macro, Pico, and small cells in the communication network ecosystem. Service providers must therefore adopt an intelligent automation & optimization platform. The leading telecommunication service providers are looking for a flexible, scalable, open API-based cloud platform to address generic RAN vendor swap & modernization projects, customer-specific use cases and a platform with AI and ML analytics capability that goes beyond the RAN domain

In this webinar you will learn:

  • GSMA view of how new-age technologies and 5G brings new challenges and opportunities for a services provider
  • How Vodafone is leveraging HCL SON across multi-domain and create new applications much faster
  • The critical aspects to consider during the network vendors' SWAP projects
  • The benefits of HCL SON automation platform and upcoming features to make your network more intelligent and reliable
