Automated Assurance Is Key to the Automation of 5G and SD-WAN Operations
CSPs must embrace extreme operations automation and look at every opportunity to reduce human intervention in order to deliver on the promise of digital transformation and 5G, and to support dynamic services such as SD-WAN. However, CSPs must not wait for the full implementation of cloud-native 5G networks to start their journeys towards extreme automation. Assurance processes such as active testing provide an early opportunity for automation in today’s operational scenarios for existing services on physical networks. These processes also set the stage for extreme automation in cloud-native 5G networks.
