Is AI the Antidote to Network Complexity?

December 23, 2019 / Tobias Mann

Dreams of a future built on 5G networks and powered by IoT dominated the conversation at conferences in 2019. But for all these grand visions there’s a problem: How do you manage networks with millions of cell sites connecting billions of IoT devices? According to some the answer is better visibility enabled by artificial intelligence (AI). While most of these technologies are still years from reaching maturity, that’s not stopping companies in the performance analytics space like EXFO and Vitria from investing big in machine learning (ML) and AI. According to Ken Gold, director of test, monitoring, and analytics solutions at EXFO, the implicit complexity associated with massive 5G IoT deployments is only going to make identifying and resolving network anomalies all the more challenging.
