Blue Planet, a division of Ciena, introduced Proactive Network Operations (PNO), which enables AI-assisted operations to significantly improve the trouble-to-resolve process, forging a path toward a more adaptive network.

The new solution harnesses the power of automation and artificial intelligence (AI) to help providers not only predict but to also proactively avoid outages.

Using advanced machine learning algorithms, Blue Planet’s PNO can predict potential service disruptions with exceptional accuracy, foreseeing up to 95 percent of unplanned network outages based on analysis of Ethernet and optical loss of signal (LOS) anomalies. PNO can quickly pinpoint the root cause and then prescribe the best actions to preemptively resolve the issue.

Blue Planet has also created an OpEx savings calculator to estimate the potential savings by deploying PNO. According to Blue Planet’s estimates, providers on average can save up to 38 percent in trouble-to-resolve OpEx per year.

PNO can be integrated into existing provider environments regardless of which vendor systems and networking equipment are in place. Additionally, Blue Planet’s service professionals can help fine-tune and tailor PNO based on specific business objectives and network environment.

Kailem Anderson, VP of Portfolio and Engineering, Blue Planet, said: “More providers are realizing that AI is key to facilitating a more automated way of running their business. Blue Planet’s goal is to enable customers to apply intelligent, closed-loop automation to all aspects of their operations with the goal of realizing Ciena’s vision of a fully adaptive network.”
