Ericsson launched its Operations Engine in January to assist communications service providers with moving away from incident driven and reactive operations to predictive and preventative operations. The engine, which leverages machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI), is an end-to-end managed services operating model that reimagines network and IT operations, network design and optimization and applications development and maintenance.
