AI Cognitive Framework

  • Fully autonomous closed-loop control framework for large-scale 5G and beyond networks.
  • Highly flexible customisation for various smart vertical businesses such as smart grid, water management, transportation, traffic/road management, railway etc.
  • Widely applicable to various Self-Organising Networking (SON) technical use cases (Self-healing, self-protection, self-optimisation, self-configuration etc.)
  • High TRL (Technology Readiness Level) validated in industrial relevant environments.
