Huawei Announces Plan to Bring AI to Networks to Elevate Network Productivity

Published: ২৮/০৬/২৪

Speaking at a keynote of the MWC Shanghai 2024 for the 5G-A & AI Roundtable, the Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Huawei Wireless Solution Eric Zhao unveiled a plan to bring AI to networks. The plan focuses on building an ecosystem of RAN Intelligent Agent in collaboration with operators to increase network productivity. Its first phase looks to cover 1,000 site engineers and 10,000 sites across Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Bangkok, Jinan, and Shenzhen within a half year.

After three years of arduous efforts, the telecom sector has seen 5G-A progress from vision to reality, and 2024 has been hailed as the first year of commercial 5G-A. To date, 5G-A has displayed quite impressive performance in terms of network, business, and device developments. Now, mobile networks face growing challenges related to complicated O&M, differentiated network characteristics, and diverse experience-driven operations. In line with this trend, Huawei has proposed bringing AI to networks, that is to build RAN Intelligent Agent that can reshape network O&M, experience, and services.

Reshape O&M: RAN Intelligent Agent boosts efficiency by simplifying processes. An impressive example of this is the field maintenance engineer copilot that Huawei has launched. As the first of its kind, the copilot is an AI-based assistant that autonomously generates solution policies based on extensive expert knowledge to significantly increase efficiency. During a field case, it facilitated the handling of an optical path fault with tenfold efficiency.

Reshape experience: RAN Intelligent Agent enables networks to autonomously optimize experience and energy saving. The optimization is automated based on multi-dimensional high-precision real-time sensing and the generation and delivery of optimal experience and energy-saving policies. In an area covered by 223 cells, RAN Intelligent Agent has been operating stably for thousands of hours, automatically maximizing performance while keeping energy consumption the lowest possible. This is the first time Huawei has worked with operators to implement such automated network O&M.

Reshape services: RAN Intelligent Agent enables experience-driven service operations through the real-time evaluation of network resources. This allows operators to provision new services as soon as they are needed and ensure deterministic service experience. The 5G-A livestreaming assurance package is incredibly helpful in this regard. As the world’s first livestreaming package of its kind, it provides fruit farmers with the deterministic uplink speeds that they need to reach customers through livestreaming, offering a good example of how operators innovate business models to accelerate monetization.

“Our goal is to bring AI to networks. To achieve this, we will, for our part, shift from a solution provider to a co-builder of intelligent networks. We believe that the co-growth of RAN Intelligent Agent and networks will create more extensive business value, transform networks more rapidly, and lead our industry into a new era of intelligence,” Zhao concluded.

MWC Shanghai 2024 will be held from June 26 to June 28 in Shanghai, China. During the event, Huawei will showcase its latest products and solutions at stands E10 and E50 in Hall N1 of the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC).

2024 will mark the first year of commercial 5.5G, and F5.5G gigabit optical network deployment has already begun. Synergies across networks, cloud, and intelligence are set to give rise to pervasive intelligent applications and increasingly diverse user experiences. Together with global operators, industry professionals, and opinion leaders, Huawei will dive into exciting topics at this year’s MWC Shanghai, like how to amplify 5G’s success in the 5.5G era and how to tap into the potential of operator revenue growth to bring us even faster to the intelligent world.
