SINGAPORE TELECOM’s ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE FOR NETWORK MANAGEMENT MAXIMISES CAPACITY, CUTS COSTS

By CBR Staff Writer

Singapore Telecom Ltd uses a computer with artificial intelligence to manage frequencies for its mobile telephone network, Singapore Telecom MobileLink, Reuter reports. The system, known as Autocell, was developed in conjunction with Singapore’s state-funded Information Technology Institute at a cost of $1.3m. The system is intended to increase the call-carrying capacity of the network by automaticallly allotting frequencies between areas depending on customer demand. Autocell reduces the number of frequencies where use is low and increases them where it is heavy. Singapore Telecom said the system also cut costs by reducing the number of staff needed to run the network.
