Nokia Wins 5G World Award for Most Innovative ML Software Product

Nokia announced that 5G World has honored it with the “Most Innovative Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning Technology for the Network“ Award for Anomaly Detection Service. The software product is jointly developed with Vodafone and detects and remediates network anomalies before they impact customers.

Anomaly Detection Service, launched in July, is based on Nokia Bell Labs technology and is being rolled out across Vodafone’s pan-European network. The product quickly detects and troubleshoots irregularities, such as mobile site congestion and interference, and unexpected latency, that can impact customer service quality. Vodafone expects that around 80 percent of all its anomalous mobile network issues and capacity demands will be automatically detected and addressed using Anomaly Detection Service.

“This is an excellent acknowledgement of the strong work that many engineers at Vodafone and Nokia have contributed over a considerable amount of time. As Vodafone extends its pan-European 5G network, Anomaly Detection is critical to match the speed and responsiveness of this new technology with a great service for our customers,“ said Johan Wibergh, CTO for Vodafone.

“I am thrilled for Nokia and our partners at Vodafone about this recognition. The work that Nokia and Vodafone have done with Anomaly Detection Service underlines not only the strength of our working relationship but the Nokia pedigree of producing world class technologies. Our work with Vodafone continues and I think we can all expect additional, jointly developed solutions that rival the many customer benefits that Anomaly Detection delivers,“ added Raghav Sahgal, President of Cloud and Network Services at Nokia.
