Assurance and analytics prepare for fundamental role in enabling open RAN and 5G core
Virtualised, dynamic, open networks present a constantly moving surface upon which communications service providers (CSPs) will need to analyse data to assure service operations. However, those service operations are forever changed, and to achieve comprehensive results, assurance and analytics needs to happen continuously across the radio access networks (RAN) and in the virtualised 5G core.
Without this, CSPs will be flying blind, and the services and network slices of the future will be unable to meet the demands.
