Microsoft releases a set of cloud-based solutions for telecom companies.

26 February, Barcelona (Reuters) – Two AI-powered services for managing telecom networks have been previewed by Microsoft. These services employ the same management tools as the company’s Azure cloud platform.

The company stated in a blog post that operators may gain from cutting-edge artificial intelligence that helps to uncover new business prospects from data on and insights into their operations, including the development of high-speed 5G networks.

After the acquisition of cloud networking firms Affirmed Networks and Metaswitch in 2020, Microsoft became the first player in the 5G market.

The corporation has a strong focus on AI and has made significant investments in OpenAI’s ChatGPT bot, which has increased the attention that artificial intelligence has been receiving in Silicon Valley and elsewhere. While OpenAI continues its quest to develop artificial intelligence that is comparable to human intellect, Microsoft stated last month that it wants to include such AI into all of its products.

“We’re adapting our existing cloud work to be specifically relevant to the telecom operator network environment. The AI operations work we are integrating into the system is, in my opinion, a very wonderful illustration of it,” said Jason Zander, Microsoft’s senior vice president of strategic missions and technologies.

He said, “We are bringing that same technology into this space. “Every operator I’ve showed this to is overjoyed,” the operator said.

Telecom partners including AT&T Inc. (T.N), Ericsson (ERNT.ZA), and Nokia Oyj will be able to use Microsoft’s new Nexus service, an all-in-one platform that enables operators to run their networks from the cloud (NOKIA.HE).

Microsoft’s new Nexus service, an all-in-one platform enabling operators to operate their networks from the cloud, and two distinct “AIOps” services, will be available to telecom partners like AT&T Inc (T.N), Ericsson (ERNT.ZA), and Nokia Oyj (NOKIA.HE).

The new improvements, according to Monica Zethzon, vice president at Ericsson, would enable operators to “change their core networks while boosting consumer experiences.”
