For telecommunications companies, generative AI holds great promise for new services, enhanced customer experiences, network operations and planning efficiencies, and innovative approaches to sales and marketing. But there’s a long road between ideation and implementation. Embarking on strategies for generative AI requires much more than experimentation and pilot projects. Telcos require solutions that operate at incredible scale and integrate and access data across diverse data sources, systems, and services. Deploying generative AI solutions requires more than an understanding of the technology; it requires knowledge and experience in identifying the proper use cases and operational processes, resulting in the best business outcomes.

What is generative AI for Telcos?
