Automation Everywhere


The telecommunications industry has spent several decades on an epic trek – one which ends at a destination called “automation.” Now, finally, we are approaching journey’s end, as the various next-gen technologies that allow service providers to build Autonomous Networks – ones which operate without the need for human intervention – finally come to fruition.

AUTOMATION EVERYWHERE will bring together the foremost developers of the technologies that go to make up automation (including virtualization, AI, machine learning, telemetry, robotics, analytics, automation middleware and security) with the communications service providers, systems integrators and OTTs that are blazing the trail by deploying them as part of production networks.
