Cognitive Network Management represents one of the most important emerging network infrastructure opportunities. Network operators have made great strides with existing Self-organizing Network (SON) technologies. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI), in combination with Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and advanced analytics, is poised to take autonomous, intelligent network operation and control to an entirely new level. While AI has not yet made extensive inroads into the realm of Next Generation Networks, cellular systems in particular will soon achieve early and extensive success through the combination of Machine Learning, SDN, and advanced data analytics technologies.
The potential economic and social benefits cannot be overstated as networks will achieve and entirely new level of self-awareness, self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing, and self-protection. This will be a benefit for existing networks as well as evolved LTE, emerging Internet of Things (IoT) systems, and soon to be launched 5G networks. An interdisciplinary approach will be required for systems integration as many technologies are brought together including Machine Learning, SDN, Network Function Virtualization (NFV), Network Slicing, Quality of Service Management, and advanced security methodologies.
This Next Generation Networking research assesses the impact of AI in various networking products and solutions including embedded equipment, components, and software platforms (network automation, optimization, and transformation). The report also evaluates the role of SDN, Edge Computing, NFV, and Augmented Intelligence in the formation and support of AI driven networking ecosystems. In addition, the impact of 5G networks, IoT technology and systems, and network analytics functions is also evaluated. The report analyzes technologies, products, and solutions from key solution providers, identifying key companies in each segment of the competitive landscape. The report also provides a comprehensive quantitative assessment of the AI driven networking market based on major market segments and sub-segments, AI technology type, deployment type, network type, industry vertical and region.
