Enterprises see the potential for AI to benefit network management, but progress so far is limited by AI’s ability to work with company-specific network data and the range of devices that AI can see.
The network is the preferred vector of attack. Make it your prime defense.
Look for genuine value when under pressure to implement hyped technologies such as AI-driven network automation, private 5G, open networking and zero trust.
Network outages can often be traced to four error-prone activities: fault analysis and response, configuration changes, scaling and failover, and security policies.
Using generative AI technology for network operations issues can yield results that sound credible but are actually completely wrong.
Enterprises hope to invest in security, operational stability, and better application-delivery performance using technologies that include SD-WAN and AI.
Enterprises hate it when the companies they buy gear from pass the buck when issues arise, over-hype their sales pitches, and don’t give a heads-up about new products.
Wider acceptance of private 5G will require expanding its uses among early adopters and finding suitable applications for it in other industries.
