“Network automation is a critical component of 5G as it enables efficiency and cost savings for communications service providers (CSPs),” said Troy MorleyIndustry Principal, ICT at Frost & Sullivan. “While the entire 5G network will benefit from network automation, the most significant growth opportunity lies in the 5G RAN, where CSPs invest most of their capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operating expenses (OPEX).”

Morley added, “At nearly 70% of infrastructure spend, small improvements in RAN due to network automation result in significant ROI for CSPs, especially when it comes to OPEX. Additionally, the new 5G RAN architecture has opened the market to many new vendors bringing in machine learning and artificial intelligence specialists.”

The global 5G network automation market presents opportunities in the following areas:

  • The 5G RAN: RAN automation provides the opportunity for continuous RAN performance improvement and continuous OPEX reduction for each RAN, making it a win-win for the CSP.
  • 5G core/edge networks: The network functions that make up 5G core and edge networks are beginning to be deployed globally and will require automation for operational and financial success.
  • 5G transport networks: Transport networks often do not receive the same attention as RAN and core networks. However, they are essential for 5G to live up to expectations and require automation. This will become vital as network slicing expands.
