After embarking on network automation last year, Telefónica International Wholesale Services (TIWS) announced it has completed its network automation journey across all of its services.

Complementing its automation efforts across its entire footprint, TIWS now offers its customers and partners self-managed quoting tools, which allow them to avoid ongoing manual intervention and provides visibility into offers for end customers.

TIWS said that automation and the self-managed quoting tools were key elements for organizations' digital transformation efforts because networking services can now be automatically provisioned and orchestrated from a common control layer, and modified according to a customer’s specific requirements.

Webinar: Remote Post Production In The Cloud

Video production companies across the world have traditionally been tethered to physical facilities, but with the advent of covid-19, remote post production capabilities are more important than ever. Join this webinar to learn more about how video producers can utilize Google Cloud infrastructure, along with partner applications, to develop a remote post production suite that brings your artists and editors together, no matter where they are.

Automation also enables the evolution of networks toward using machine learning, data analytics artificial intelligence while increasing quality and generating efficiencies in the day-to-day management, according to TIWS.

Coupled with software-defined networking (SDN), additional benefits for network automation include an application and analysis layer that is capable of controlling the SDN planes, network health, troubleshooting, workflow automation, traffic variation and resource prediction, among others.

TIWS also plans to launch an SD-WAN service for its international customers.
