Automation of complex or repetitive tasks

Enabling highly scalable, consistent, policy-driven and error-free operations

One of the key benefits of the transformation to virtualized networks is the increased reliance on automation to support just about every aspect of operations. The use of automation to manage complex tasks is particularly interesting given that service providers are being challenged to reduce OPEX. By automating service provisioning, network optimization, troubleshooting, root cause analysis and more, providers faced with a shrinking workforce and shortfall of skilled technical resources can continue to deliver high-quality services at a lower cost.

Additionally, since automated operations rely heavily on high-quality data to drive better decisions, being able to automate data measurement, correlation and storage means this highly repetitive function is done with greater consistency and quality, avoiding human error often associated with these functions.
