Huawei has launched AUTIN, an Operations Consulting and Software as a Service (SaaS) solution for Digitised Operations Services to help operators manage complex hybrid ICT environments.
AUTIN delivers AUTomation and INtelligence to modernise and reshape operations for the digital era.
Building on its Operation Web Services (OWS), Huawei new AUTIN brand is introducing new functionality and machine learning for intelligent operations. AUTIN leverages big data and AI to help operators move from a reactive to more proactive and predictive operations. The solution is vendor and technology agnostic and can manage multiple technologies and services in a constantly changing environment.
According to Huawei, one prime differentiator of AUTIN is that it enables operational staff to build APPs to automate daily tasks. AUTIN provides access to over 900 APPs which deliver Huawei’s best practices in various areas of operations.
“AUTIN’s launch marks a new chapter for Huawei,” said David Shen, VP of Global Technical Services, President of Assurance and Managed Services (AMS) at Huawei. “Operators can now quickly gain access to our industry leading digital platform and new capabilities such as automation and AI.
“AUTIN reduces manual work by automating simple and recurring tasks, which increases consistency and allows staff to focus on more important work. It provides actionable insights through real-time analytics and faster fault resolutions through root-cause analysis. AUTIN gives full operational visibility to enable optimisation of work order distribution, reduces site visits and improves staff utilisation.”
According to Analysys Mason, the telecommunications industry is at a major tipping point; as operators embark on important digital transformation initiatives, with NFV/SDN, IoT and 5G still to come, current operational models and economics do not help achieve the benefits of these strategic transformation initiatives. Operators need a future-proof software driven operations model that can not only support today’s physical networks, but also adapt as the infrastructure transitions to hybrid and virtual networks.
