Cloud-ready 5G Architectures Demand Automation in Operations and Optimization

5G success relies heavily on the performance and interoperability of the radio access network (RAN) and technology-enabled subscriber handsets. As RAN architecture evolves to support 5G capacity and latency requirements, new and higher bandwidth frequencies require the deployment of more and more small cells–exceeding traditional LTE cells fivefold.

Address Traditional and New Challenges with Specialized and Problem-specific Artificial Intelligence RAN Datasets

Traditional RAN Problems Intensify with 5G:
  • Coverage
  • RF Overshooting
  • UE Capability
  • Neighbor Cell Relations,
  • Antenna Cabling Errors
New Problems Surface with New Standards:
  • Carrier Aggregation
  • Ultra Low Latency
  • Distributed RAN Components.
