These can be new deployments or augmentation and upgrade of existing copper-based networks. According to the Fiber Broadband Association (FBA), the number of households has recently hit the 30 million mark in North America, with over 14 million homes connected.

    The telecommunication industry is going through a transformational phase of development – to acclimatize itself per the new technological and cloud trends. At the very outset, the focus was on the Communication Technology (CT) which marked the first wave of information era. The second phase was the internet phase which started approximately around the year 2000. The industry realigned itself around horizontal solutions during this phase. It was the time of e-commerce and portals. While the rollout of 5G will be a multiyear journey, the foundations begun this year already. One of the most anticipated mobile technology platforms, 5G will be the connective tissue for the Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous vehicles, and mobile media, just to name a few. Telecoms are harnessing the power of AI to process and analyze these huge volumes of Big Data in order to extract actionable insights to provide better customer experiences, improve operations, and increase revenue through new products and services. With Gartner forecasting that 20.4 billion connected devices will be in use worldwide by 2020, more and more Telecom solution providers are jumping on the bandwagon, recognizing the value of artificial intelligence applications in the telecommunications industry.
