Aria Networks Joins ETSI AI Initiative

AI and networking pioneer Aria Networks has joined the ETSI group formed to lead the industry in mapping the future of AI and Networking.

The ETSI Experiential Networked Intelligence (ENI) Industry Specification Group (ISG) was set up in February 2017, to define a new architecture for network management leveraging Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to improve automation.

ETSI ENI already has the backing of telecom operators including Telecom Italia and Vodafone, as well as vendors such as Huawei, ZTE, Samsung and Xilinx.

Aria is the first independent software vendor to join the group.

Aria’s Head of Research, Dr Archie Wade, commented: “Network automation has risen to the top of the agenda for network operators in the last few years. But many operators are still taking quite a narrow view of what that means, and the role for AI. Through our participation in the ETSI ENI group, we hope to provide an industry blueprint for business-driven network automation, delivering real transformation.”

Aria Networks’ software platform uses AI and Machine Learning to create optimal designs for complex networks, in response to any set of criteria (such as lowest latency, lowest power consumption) or conditions (such as scheduled or unplanned outages).
