The 5G network intelligence system independently developed by AsiaInfo took the lead in reaching L3-L4 of network intelligence level defined by the International Organization for Standardization, and has been widely applied in the 5G network construction of China, which supports the construction of 5G communication software systems for three major communication operators in China, and facilitates the continuous evolution and technological innovation of 5G network intelligence. This achievement has comprehensively improved the technological level of artificial intelligence in the communications industry, greatly improved the operations/operating efficiency, reduced operations/operating costs, enhanced customer satisfaction and network value, which plays an important role in the technological progress of communication industry and industrial structure optimization and upgrading. In August 2021, the “R&D of 5G network intelligent system and industrial large-scale application” passed the appraisal of national technological achievements, and the overall technology was identified as “domestically leading and internationally advanced”.
AsiaInfo has established a full-stack AI capability and product system, created a general artificial intelligence platform AISWare AI2, and formed a full-stack product system that runs through the basic business processes of communication industry and covers the full evolution process of communication network intelligence. AsiaInfo’s 5G network intelligence products have been selected into the Gartner 2022 Mainstream Supplier Matrix of AI Offerings in CSP Network Operations, and have been put into commercial use on a large scale in the construction of 5G networks in more than 20 provinces, supporting the building and intelligent evolution of 5G ecosystems for communication operators. At the same time, AsiaInfo has also become one of the main contributors to international standards in the field of network intelligence in international standard organizations such as ITU, 3GPP, and ETSI, and will continue to help improve the international competitiveness of China’s 5G technology.
