Cloud and AI: IBM broadens deals for 5G

To help helping telecom operators build 5G networks faster, reduce costs and sell customised services, a cloud platform uses software instead of physical equipment to perform network functions

IBM will offer new services to Verizon and Telefonica ranging from running 5G over a cloud platform to using artificial intelligence, the US technology company said on Monday.

By offering telecom operators next-generation software tools, big technology players such as Microsoft and Amazon are vying for a share of 5G revenue. IBM will offer the telecom operators cloud services to run their networks and assist them in selling products tailored to customers by using technology it obtained from buying software firm Red Hat.

No financial terms were disclosed about the tie-ups, which broadened IBM’s existing partnerships with the two firms. To help helping telecom operators build 5G networks faster, reduce costs and sell customised services, a cloud platform uses software instead of physical equipment to perform network functions. “It’s a disruptive time in this particular market segment, telcos are trying to position themselves as the destination for services like augmented reality, machine learning and AI”, Darell Jordan-Smith, vice president of Redhat, told Reuters.

By automating the handling of frequently asked questions and tasks like billing, on the AI front, IBM and Spain’s Telefonica have created a virtual assistant that they say will remove friction points, such as long wait times. “We see this as an existential moment for telco operators with 5G: architecturally, they’re looking to gain more control on their platforms and rethink their network as a digital world rather than a structured physical model”, said Steve Canepa, IBM’s general manager for communications business.
