Nokia adds AVA QoE at the Edge for SPs to enhance customer experience

Nokia announced the AVA QoE at the Edge service to enable Communications Service Providers (CSP) to enhance customer experience.

This new service deploys Nokia AVA AI at the edge, close to the customer, allowing automated actions to fix customerissues instantly.

35 percent of telecom operators say that the top objective of their 5G strategy is to improve customer experience.

Deployment of Nokia AVA algorithms on traditional network architectures has achieved a 59 percent reduction in Netflix buffering and 15 percent fewer YouTube sessions that suffer from long playback.

Telecom operators can delpoy Nokia’s AVA QoE at the Edge in order to achieve faster upload and download speeds for enhanced video streaming and cloud gaming quality.

Nokia AVA QoE at the Edge will be deploying Machine Learning (ML) algorithms at the network edge to enable real-time automated actions.The solution also eases the data burden on CSPs, with a reduction in the volume of user plane data required to feed ML models.

The complexity with the various 5G technologies in combination with the shift towards Open RAN will potentially introduce new challenges to CSP operational teams tasked with managing end-to-end performance.

“Artificial Intelligence will play an increasingly important role managing the complexity and deliver the Quality of Experience. Nokia’s approach combines centralized AI to generate network-wide insights and pre-trained models with distributed AI for real-time optimization of the RAN,” Stefan Pongratz, vice president of Dell’Oro Group, said.

Dennis Lorenzin, head of Network Cognitive Services, Global Services, Nokia, said: “Today, many CSPs are keen to launch new low latency services to their customers. With Nokia’s AVA QoEat the Edge, we bring AI to the edge, so CSPs can deliver personalized 5G experiences and guaranteed performance.”
