Airtel deploys Avanseus’ AI-based predictive maintenance solution

New Delhi/Singapore, 10 December, 2021: Bharti Airtel (“Airtel”), India’s premier communications solutions provider, and Avanseus, today announced the roll-out of Avanseus’ predictive maintenance (“PdM”) solution across its operations. The expansion follows the successful trial and commercial deployment of the solution across Airtel’s transport, enterprise, and core networks.

Avanseus PdM applies the principles of AI analytics to Airtel’s rich network data and uncovers actionable operational insights. It enables Airtel’s teams to proactively ‘Predict and Prevent’ incidents in the network. In addition, the solution is cloud native, containerized and ready for Airtel’s 5G roll-out.

The PdM solution forms part of Airtel’s advanced automation strategy in which machine learning algorithms and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are used to support the move toward zero-fault, zero-touch networks.

Giuseppe Donagemma, Avanseus Chairman, said, “The adoption of the Avanseus solution positions Airtel as a global leader in the use of AI within the telecommunications sector. The company is now at the forefront among operators in deploying innovative and game-changing technologies. By using the Avanseus PdM solution to predict network faults before they occur, Airtel will be able to achieve greater network uptime, improve operational efficiency, increase revenues, and most importantly, improve the network experience for their customers. The solution is an important enabler of digital transformation in network operations.”
