Star Trek for Network Operations. Imagine an engineer walking up to a screen, and asking the computer, “look for anomalies on sector 97B”, to which the computer responds “all functions were within established parameters.” Of course, all this is done only after the engineer provided their authorization code: Omicron-Omicron-Alpha-Yellow-Daystar-2-7.
FOUNDED BY MIRO SALEM (WHO CURRENTLY SERVES AS CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER AT 3TEN8). MIRO WAS A FORMER ERICSSON RF ENGINEER, HE STARTED HIS CAREER AS A DRIVE TESTER, AND WALKED AWAY AS AN SME AND TECHNICAL ADVISOR TO VERIZON AND AT&T; TASKED WITH HELPING CARRIERS BETTER MANAGE AND OPERATE THEIR WIRELESS NETWORKS.
At the CCA conference in Nashville (2016), 3TEN8 introduced Beeper, a mobile app, that allowed users to monitor their network with one tap, at any time, from anywhere to track their SLA’s. 3TEN8 signed up 10 carriers in 2 days, however, only a few carriers were given access to Beeper, so that 3TEN8 could learn from a small group of networks, and provide them with a more powerful product.
Beeper gave the 3TEN8 team tremendous insight into how engineers work, what questions they need answers to, and what’s most important to them from day to day.
With this information, 3TEN8's data scientists developed CIRCLE. CIRCLE uses deep neural networks, proprietary algorithms, and causal graphical models, to help engineers predict, and understand the cause of network degradations and outages, allowing them ample time to fix them before they’re ever felt by their subscribers.
CIRCLE has already proven itself on live networks, and in 3TEN8 labs, but it becomes smarter the more data it has, which is why 3TEN8 reached out to a hand selected group of carriers, to invite them to be part of the CIRCLE. These carriers were given exclusive preliminary access to CIRCLE'S insights, and most notably, they are the only 5 carriers in the world, who have a smart network.
