The 5G Standard

Automation and Autonomous system Architecture Framework

Dec 14,2022

Following a process of surveying operators about network automation and autonomy based on AI/ML this new white paper from the NGMN is intended to help guide standards development organisations on how to build on the architectural concepts and emerging directions in the industry.

The 60 page paper looks at the journey from simple automation to an autonomous system rendered zero-touch automation through a system-wide lens.

The objective is to advance the promise of a service-based framework of virtualization, cognitive awareness, and flexible levels of distribution.

The NGMN paper describes the various aspects of an autonomous system, enabled through the use of AI/ML. It also surveyed the perceived industry gaps, cooperation and standardization needs.
