The planning and building of a network is an iterative process by which a new telecommunications network or service meets the operator's and subscriber's requirements. The end users expect faster activation times, constant service availability, and problem-solving speed today. The three big U.S. carriers have spent more than USD 100 bn on 5G airwaves and network upgrades, with more popular Telecom operators like AT&T, Vodafone, and Verizon frequently encountering outdated networks and procedures that prevent them from satisfying clients' needs.
In order to create a truly agile network today, it takes an expert Fiber To The Home (FTTH) designer 8-9 hours for creation of network blueprint for 500 houses. The Telecom industry wants to reduce this to a few hours. As a result, there is a growing need for the planning and design process to be automated.
As the demand for bandwidth nearly doubles annually, Telecom Service Providers (TSPs) are seeking to create network infrastructure that gives maximum coverage, minimal latency, and complies with legal and regulatory criteria. Globally, it is estimated that the Annual Revenue Per User (ARPU) will increase by 15 to 25% over the next 12 months as telecoms raise headline pricing and increase the cost of 5G services.
Hence, a unified view for all important stakeholders is required, allowing for seamless information flow between various platforms. Where, network roll-out services and automation are essential in the development of 5G, IoT, and Industrial Digitalization.
