Global mobile telecommunications service providing company Vodafone announces the launch of its cloud-native Unified Performance Management (UPM) platform that uses Google Cloud’s analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning capabilities, reports sdxcentral.
According to the company, this new development will help it increase the reliability of its mobile experience to European customers.
The company will use Cardinality.io’s cloud-native DataOps and analytics platform, in addition to Google Cloud, to update Vodafone’s pan-European networks more efficiently via hybrid cloud architecture.
Vodafone wants to use its platform to process eight billion mobile network performance events per day. The gathered information will then be used to monitor, manage, and improve its mobile network by focusing on 5G investments.
CTO of Vodafone, Johan Wibergh, said, “It is a global data hub that gives us a real-time view of what is happening anywhere on our network, uses our global scale to manage traffic growth cheaper and more efficiently as customer data consumption grows by around 40% per year, and supports the full automation of our network by 2025.”
Vodafone says that its newly announced UPM platform will allow operating companies to collect network performance data points, effectively replacing over 100 other network performance apps. The operator’s UPM platform will be deployed in eleven European countries according to the current plan.
Moreover, Vodafone has assured its users that all the collected data will be stored in European servers, which will be protected using encryption and adhere to other security parameters, minimizing the chances of any data breach.
By simplifying data processes at scale and delivering real-time insights, the operator hopes to address 80 percent of all incidents end-to-end without any human intervention over the coming years.
