How Can AI Improve Network Automation?

Network Automation is a design strategy aimed to remove manual network processes related to planning, deployment, operations, and optimizations of IT networks. Through the use of sophisticated hardware and software solutions, organizations are finding immense value through network automation in not only the resilience of their IT networks but also in removing the burden of manual processes put on IT administrators.

Today, organizations are finding that new developing areas of research, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), are creating new unique solutions regarding network automation. By leveraging Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning advancements, autonomous systems are now beginning to use human-like analysis and decision-making to optimize the deployment, configuration, and management of extremely complex IT networks. This fascinating evolution in network automation points to a future where networks are completely self-sustaining and self-healing through next-generation systems enabled by artificial intelligence and machine learning.
