Transforming telcos

The demos in this room focused on the network cloudification journey of communication service providers (CSPs) (across RAN, Core, IMS, and OSS/BSS) through unified automation, orchestration, and generative AI toolchain, resulting in new growth opportunities, reduced operational expenditure, increased sustainability, and enhanced resiliency.

These demos showcased innovations from AWS and leading Telcos helping to digitize industries by reinventing connectivity and introducing new business models via private network solutions, network APIs, public multi-access edge computing (MEC), and partnerships. Our consumer experience demos showcased some of the innovative solutions AWS is developing with Telcos and leading independent software vendors (ISVs) to engage consumers in a more exciting, personalized, and smart way.
