Dish selects IBM for AI-powered automation and intent-driven orchestration


Dish Network has selected IBM to automate its greenfield cloud-native 5G network. In a statement, IBM said Dish will leverage its AI-powered automation and intent-driven network orchestration software and services. Dish also plans to use advanced network slicing.

“Our 5G build is unique in that we are truly creating a ‘network of networks,’ where each enterprise can custom-tailor a network slice or group of slices to achieve their specific business needs. IBM’s orchestration solutions leverage AI, automation and machine learning to not only make these slices possible, but to ensure they adapt over time as customer use evolves,” said Marc Rouanne, chief network officer, Dish Wireless.
