TUPL has contributed to beta testing of Radio Access Network Automation in SoftBank with TUPL’s Network Advisor


BELLEVUE, Washington – September 10, 2018 – Tupl, a market leader in automation for the wireless industry, announced that they concluded a beta test to automate tuning of SoftBank’s Radio Access Network (RAN). In the beta test, Tupl developed an AI model to prepare SoftBank’s radio network for AI automation using their Network Advisor product and assessed the effectiveness of the model. Beta test results indicated that Tupl’s AI model was more than 90% accurate in a specific area of assessing network issues, and proved it is more effective and advanced in executing network automation tasks which SoftBank has been promoting. Tupl will provide continued support for the next phase trial across RAN for commercial use.

Petri Hautakangas, Tupl CEO, said: “After a very successful beta, we are now moving to the next phase of our collaboration with SoftBank, which will bring state of the art AI automation to their network. We’re confident that we’re the right partner to work closely with SoftBank to enable significant process efficiencies and quality improvements for their RAN system.”
