Session Outline

Today telcos are spending innumerable man hours and money to deal with issues related to customer experience and service quality. And, they are likely to grow worse when the telcos roll out 5G network services, which have 10x more control variables that can affect quality than LTE, along with many more distinct vertical use cases and customers competing for connectivity. With declining revenue and limited capex, Telco’s need to be innovative in terms of how they are going to retain the existing customer base and at the same time acquire more customers. Hyper automation in all line of businesses is going to be another focus area. In this session, Shashank will talk about leveraging Artificial Intelligence for variety of use cases in telecom industry for enhanced customer experience, revenue maximization, OPEX reduction, CAPEX prioritization etc.
