In order to safeguard the future health of their businesses, operators need to be confident that the decisions they make today are the right ones. Networks have to run at optimal efficiency while still delivering a first-class customer experience. The only way to achieve this is by having access to timely, relevant data across your business and operations to support decision making, the operational intelligence that can only be achieved by using streaming big data analytics.
Big data analytics tools are particularly useful in capacity planning, as they enable analytics at the edge, meaning operational intelligence is applied much earlier in the process, providing insights in real time. Also, by having the ability to correlate multiple data sources, operators are given a more complete picture of current usage, helping to identify and correlate relationships among different pieces of information including devices, systems, applications and usage data. This provides the operational intelligence to support effective decision making in infrastructure planning, improved quality of service and cost optimization.
The network is the backbone to CSPs’ businesses and requires special attention, as mistakes made can be felt for decades to come. This means that operators have to make the right choices and base decisions on current and relevant information. The operational intelligence provided by big data analytics solutions such as those offered by Guavus is essential to helping CSPs to make these smarter decisions: Failure to plan effectively today will result in costly repercussions down the line.
