Network automation can improve the agility of network services, improve operational efficiency, and increase network availability.
The study focused on the network automation implemented for the above categories of operations with the Nokia NSP.
NSP is the domain controller for multi-vendor IP, optical and microwave networks, which enables operators to automate a number of network management processes.
The results showed that cost avoidance at the domain controller level is the result of factors such as process automation which reduces the manpower required for manual workloads by up to 68% and hence , the time needed to deploy new services is reduced by 88%.
The study found that fewer manual interventions resulted in up to 85% reduction in the time spent processing errors and that automating alarm correlation and root cause analysis provided improvement. significant time to repair (MTTR) – up to 71%.
“Network automation will be essential to enable future business models based on network slicing. Operators should also seek out a network automation platform such as Nokia NSP to reap the benefits of automation and ensure the efficient and automated management and control of slice-based services, ”said Larry Goldman , Chief Analyst and Project Director, Analysys Mason.
The research company interviewed a group of global operators about their network automation strategies and results, collecting more than 60 data points to quantify the benefits of network automation at the domain controller level.
“While we’ve seen significant gains in automating the network for service delivery, the biggest savings are being made by automating network lifecycle management. automation, ”said Mike Thompson, manager of IP network automation at Nokia.
