What is big data analytics?
Making big data work for you
To get an accurate picture of the health of a network today, big data techniques typically require data from a variety of network and management sources as well as from the services and subscribers. A big data platform collects, filters, and correlates the incoming information into a data reservoir before applying predictive and prescriptive analytics techniques.
Big data applications use these recommendations, plus business and technical policies, to provide feedback to the network operator. This information offers unprecedented insight into the state of the network, transforms the way communication service providers (CSPs) innovate and improve their operational processes and opens lucrative new avenues for business growth.
... it’s one of the key components of network transformation, providing the foundation for the next-generation of networks.
Key to network transformation
For CSPs, big data analytics is a gold mine of new opportunities. It reveals trends in customer behaviors like never before and enables intelligent strategies to maximize resource allocation. Combined with NFV, SDN and cloud computing, it’s one of the key components of network transformation, providing the foundation for the next-generation of networks.
