In order to understand where vendors are gaining traction with products which included Advanced analytics, AI and Automation (A3), it is useful to look beyond the vendor powerpoint – at published case studies and press releases. These give a picture of the depth and breadth of actual live implementations.
We visited 250 websites of vendors known to sell to telcos – and analysed 130 suitable press releases and case studies.
The diagram below shows the distribution of case studies found – against the broad view of possible uses of A3 in a telco. Pink shows 10 or more case studies with network management having a count of 30 and assurance with 16. Blue shows more nascent areas. For more information on the potential uses of A3, see Uses for A3 Across a Telco
