The aim is to operate the telecom cloud environment intelligently and efficiently to enable cloud automation and orchestration, according to Ericsson.

The telecommunications industry is moving into cloud automation, especially with the introduction of the 5G cloud-native. Artificial intelligence assets provide an efficient cloud visualisation method with the ability to monitor internal traffic between NFVI layers, in addition to providing a fast way to identify faults and generate resolution suggestions.

Adel Hamed, CEO at Telecom Egypt, said, “We are keen to lead the way in the region when it comes to artificial intelligence, as it paves the road for implementation of new technologies across all our markets. Partnering with Ericsson enables us to achieve our strategic goals when it comes to enhanced operational effectiveness and customer experience.”

A major advantage in the case of the cloud is that the software is divided into smaller components. This means that Telecom Egypt can selectively upgrade software and manage these upgrades more easily on a live network with minimal disruption.

Rafiah Ibrahim, head of Ericsson Middle East and Africa, added, “This successful pilot showcases the possibility for operators to deploy Artificial Intelligence on a broader scale. By using Ericsson’s technology, operators such as Telecom Egypt are able to build global standard agile networks and speed up the introduction of new services.”

Both companies will now begin to integrate other services to address further market segments and opportunities while ensuring the continuity management and automation process evolution of live solutions.
