SK Telecom is expanding the use of its AI-assisted network operation system TANGO to all its telecommunications networks.
The operator has already been using TANGO (the T advanced next generation operational supporting system) to help manage its fixed line network, and is now extending the application of the system to the mobile network.
TANGO uses machine learning to automate the optimization of network operation based on network traffic information broken down by area and period.
The system is also designed to enhance the accuracy of network management by measuring the quality of network operations delivered to customers, and incorporates virtualization capabilities to help mobile operators adopt new network capabilities including IoT and 5G.
Last month, SK Telecom entered an agreement to provide the TANGO platform to India's largest operator Bharti Airtel.
“The AI-assisted network operation technology based on big data analytics will be essential in the 5G era,” SK Telecom SVP and head of network technology R&D Park Jin-hyo commented.
“SK Telecom will continue to improve the functionality of TANGO aiming at providing the best-performing network for customers to enjoy.”
