Invest in AI for better network performance and security.

AI Investment for Network Performance and Security


  • Global network operator spending on AI for network orchestration is projected to reach US$20 billion by 2028, up from $6 billion in 2024.
  • AI plays a critical role in optimizing network performance and enhancing security, with over 50% of operator spend on AI by 2028 allocated to these areas.

AI investment is crucial for ensuring network efficiency, reducing operational costs, and meeting the demands of emerging technologies.

AI Investment critical for network performance and security

According to Juniper Research, the escalating usage of cellular networks for applications like smart manufacturing and autonomous vehicles will drive a significant increase in AI investment for network orchestration. This investment is essential for automating key network processes and meeting the requirements for high throughput, low latency, and extended geographical coverage.

The report emphasizes the importance of incorporating AI into core networks to enhance efficiency and decrease operational expenses. As operators expand 5G networks and prepare for future 6G networks, AI will play a pivotal role in performance optimization and network security, accounting for more than half of global operator spending on AI by 2028. The ability to automate real-time network analysis and adjust network conditions will be essential for minimizing costs associated with network management and service provision.

Frederick Savage, a research author, highlights the significance of AI in maximizing the value of cellular networks for connectivity. As operators vie for superior network quality, AI will be crucial for attracting high-spending users who prioritize service excellence.
