Cognitive Networking with Analytics ML/AI

Solving Real-world Problems with Solutions Powered by Advanced Analytics and Machine Learning/AI

Network automation continues to be a priority for most optical transport network operators. Whether the goal is to reduce operational costs, increase network efficiency, manage disaggregated networks, or accelerate service activation, automation is becoming increasingly critical.

The first step to efficient network operation is learning from network data. Advanced analytics and machine learning/AI techniques complement Infinera’s application-based approach to automation. Offering flexible and intuitive ways of visualizing multiple key network metrics and identifying patterns, trends, and correlations, Infinera’s network analytics solution helps operators improve network performance and reliability and respond proactively to avoid service degradation. The combined use of different Transcend applications, enabling closed-loop automation, opens the path to intent-based, self-healing networks.
