KDDI, a leading mobile operator in Japan, has partnered with Ericsson to implement an innovative, AI-based solution to optimize its LTE radio access network and improve end-user experience. The solution, which is part of Ericsson’s managed services offering, automatically finds optimal radio network parameters in the network resulting in increased spectrum efficiency between bands and improved throughput. The collaboration is part of KDDI’s AI & automation program that seeks to find innovative ways to modernize optimization and provide better performance to the operator’s customers. In a series of trials conducted in dense urban areas, the Ericsson AI-based solution improved network throughput by nearly 10 percent. Normally, KDDI would have needed thousands of hours to complete a network-wide analysis to come up with optimized parameters but with Ericsson’s solution, the process now takes less than 30 minutes to complete.

With the outcome exceeding expectations, KDDI and Ericsson are now expanding this approach several additional geographical areas in Japan.

In 2018, Ericsson established Global Artificial Intelligence Accelerator labs to develop concrete use cases and test them in live network environments. Ericsson is committed to further enhancing its AI capabilities to support its customers’ automation journey in the 5G era.
