Transformative AI in Field Operations

In this webinar, Josh Simer spoke about the transformative role of AI in guiding engineers through complex installations and fault corrections. He praised AI for its ability to learn from vendor solutions, which captures essential data, drives continuous improvements, cuts costs, and speeds up network construction while enhancing quality.

Endorsing a Solutions-Based Approach

Josh Simer, the Market Manager for Service Providers and MSOs at AFL, strongly endorsed a solutions-based approach to fiber hardware. He explained that this approach significantly raises the total Return on Investment (ROI) by enhancing various aspects of the installation process. Improvements in logistics, maximised labor utilisation to meet strict deadlines, and optimised space utilisation all contribute to reduced installation times and costs. He also noted that refining installation practices and minimising lifetime issues are vital for increasing revenue by accelerating market entry.

Josh went on to detail how AFL’s solution, which integrates AI to assist technicians in the field during installation and troubleshooting, has transformed field operations. This AI technology, trained on the vendor’s solutions, proactively identifies potential faults and gives front-line users instant self-audit capabilities along with the necessary corrective actions to address issues promptly, avoiding costly and time-consuming rework.
