How Artificial Intelligence can change the telco industry?

The telecommunications industry stands on the brink of a profound transformation, propelled by the advancements in Artificial Intelligence (AI). In Europe, where the telco market is both mature and highly competitive, AI is not just a tool but a catalyst for innovation, efficiency, and enhanced customer experiences. This article delves into the ways AI is revolutionising the telco sector, with a focus on key applications and real-world examples from Europe.


AI in Network Optimisation

One of the most impactful applications of AI in telecommunications is network optimisation. Traditional network management systems often struggle with the growing complexity and data volumes. AI algorithms, however, can process vast amounts of data in real-time, enabling more efficient network management and resource allocation.

For instance, Vodafone Germany has implemented AI-driven network optimisation to enhance service quality. By leveraging machine learning algorithms, Vodafone can predict network congestion and automatically adjust resources to maintain optimal performance. This proactive approach not only improves user experience but also reduces operational costs.


Predictive Maintenance and Fraud Management

AI's ability to predict and preempt network failures is another game-changer. Predictive maintenance utilises AI to analyze network data and identify patterns that precede equipment failures. This foresight allows telcos to perform maintenance before disruptions occur, significantly reducing downtime and associated costs.

Telefónica, a major telecommunications provider in Spain, uses AI for predictive maintenance of its network infrastructure. The system analyses historical data to predict potential failures, thereby enabling timely interventions. This not only enhances network reliability but also extends the lifespan of the infrastructure.


Enhancing Customer Experience

AI is also revolutionising customer service in the telecommunications sector. Virtual assistants and chatbots, powered by natural language processing (NLP), are becoming increasingly sophisticated. They can handle a wide range of customer inquiries, providing instant support and freeing up human agents for more complex issues.

Deutsche Telekom, for example, has deployed an AI-powered chatbot named "Tinka" in Austria. Tinka can handle a variety of customer service tasks, from answering billing questions to troubleshooting technical issues. The chatbot's ability to learn from interactions ensures continuous improvement in service quality and customer satisfaction.


Fraud Detection and Security

The telecommunications industry is particularly vulnerable to fraud and security threats. AI offers robust solutions for detecting and mitigating these risks. Machine learning models can analyze user behaviour and network traffic to identify anomalies that may indicate fraudulent activities or security breaches.

Orange France has integrated AI into its security systems to enhance fraud detection capabilities. By continuously monitoring network activities and comparing them against known patterns of fraud, the AI system can flag suspicious activities in real time, enabling quicker responses and reducing potential damages.


Dynamic Pricing and Revenue Management

AI-driven analytics are enabling more sophisticated approaches to pricing and revenue management. By analyzing customer behaviour and market conditions, AI can help telcos develop dynamic pricing models that maximise revenue while maintaining competitiveness.

BT Group in the UK utilizes AI to optimize its pricing strategies. The AI system assesses various factors such as demand fluctuations, competitor pricing, and customer willingness to pay. This data-driven approach allows BT to adjust prices dynamically, ensuring both profitability and customer satisfaction.


As AI technology continues to evolve, its integration into the telecommunications industry will deepen. Future advancements may include more personalised services, advanced network slicing for 5G, and even autonomous network operations. The potential for AI to drive innovation in the telco sector is immense, promising a future where networks are smarter, more resilient, and highly adaptive to the ever-changing demands of the digital age.


Keeping that in mind at Lifecycle we have decided to invest and develop some AI features and Open APIs for our most current product, the NEXUS® MVNE Platform. Since its launch in February 2024, NEXUS has been facilitating the rapid launch and operation of neo telcos and MVNOs, already serving thousands of users across the United Kingdom.

Key highlights of the new features include:

  • Next Best Offer: powered by Artificial Intelligence, this feature allows MVNOs to engage contextually based on various factors such as the customer's demographics, special occasions, tenure, time of the year, churn probability and other specific information on each customer profile. This allows for hyper personalised and tailored experiences, enhancing customer engagement and boosting conversion rates.
  • AI-powered CRM insights: Embedded AI copilots within the CRM platform streamline data retrieval and uncover customer trends, assisting service agents. These insights are displayed automatically, pinpointing relevant information and assigning a customer value score to provide deeper insights into behaviours and preferences.
  • Open APIS: With coverage of over 40 Open Digital Architecture (ODA) components and following the recent Open APIs certifications of TMF620, Product Catalogue, and TMF622, Product Order Management, Lifecycle Software is progressing the certifications for Open APIS TMF641 and TMF652.

These new features are grounded in Lifecycle Software’s ongoing commitment to TM Forum's Open API standards. Since gaining Open API certifications, Lifecycle has enhanced its product capabilities, as well as aligned its development processes with global best practices that foster interoperability and efficiency. The TMF Open APIs are running on Microsoft Azure.
