Describing the MantaRay ‘cognitive SON’ in a statement, Nokia calls it an “industry-leading network optimisation and automation platform that uses self-configuring modules to boost network performance and efficiency.”

The statement continued: “It can be tailored and deployed to optimise specific software applications and to address unique operational challenges. Cognitive SON is an AI-powered software feature of MantaRay that enables autonomous RAN operations. Nokia created a customised solution for stc.”

The company says that the solution was implemented during a period of “high traffic”, during which it processed over 10,000 actions. This resulted in a “ten per cent average improvement on user throughput.”

Chief technology officer at stc Group, Haithem Al Faraj, said: “stc and Nokia are pioneering a new era where artificial intelligence revolutionises the telecom industry.

“This technology not only minimises human error and improves quality but also allows networks to operate autonomously and efficiently, while humans remain essential in guiding and maximising the outcomes from machine learning."
