Telecommunications

As COVID-19 has forced society to prioritize telecommuting and embrace digital automation, the telco market has been significantly upended. This new paradigm has opened up opportunities for early adopters, but created massive churn risk for laggards. AI represents new opportunities for data-driven telcos to grow market share, offer new services, operate networks more efficiently, and further reduce cost per megabyte.

telco use cases

AI Use Cases for Telecommunications

With rapidly changing market conditions, telcos are faced with many new challenges, such as the massive volume of predictive models needed and the frequency at which they must be updated. Add in the increasing complexity of the production environment, top-performing telcos are turning to automated machine learning to force multiply efficiency without compromising accuracy.

  • End-to-end Personalization

    Customer lifecycle management is a key component for any telecom player, which is why intent-based machine learning models for customer acquisition, growth, and churn prevention have been developed by DataRobot. The engine has three common elements: a co-located data layer, an insight layer, and a predictive layer around consumers’ behaviors, engagement and preferences.

  • Sector Swap

    Sector swap is a common issue in radio access network deployment. And a complete swap happens when a cell sector is not serving where it is intended to — deviated from its intended azimuth. Instead, it’s serving an area that was meant for another cell sector to serve (swapped around). Machine learning models to predict complete swap using crowdsourced data can be developed for proactive action by the network teams.

  • Mobile RAN Ops Coverage Monitoring

    Currently, incident management is reactive, and troubleshooting is based on customer complaints. Following up takes time, as organizations assess the impact before taking action towards a resolution. DataRobot developed proactive incident management models leveraging a network analytics dashboard for anomaly detection and impact insights.

  • Next Best Offer

    With a large pool of customers and wide range of product offerings, NBO becomes a key decision-maker for organizations to drive value for their marketing campaigns. NBO is important for several reasons.

    • Pushes right information to the right customer at the right time using the right channel
    • Shifts from product to customer-centric focus
    • Increases customer loyalty by offering products that suit their current lifestyle
