Operators are looking for ways to free up cash flow for re-investment. Operators can reduce recurring maintenance and operations costs with measurable quick payback projects to fund future programs or contribute to EBITA growth KPIs. As well, operators can consolidate assets to address shifting technology, acquisitions and strategic partnerships, positioning the network to grow or evolve to the target architectures. Operators are looking for better ways to improve end-to-end Quality of Experience (QoE) to reach network performance KPIs. Specific root causes (including new application and device behaviors) may be hidden from the assurance layer or not well understood, or existing service provider resources may already be too busy with existing projects.
