6 AI ingredients every wireless networking strategy needs

Artificial intelligence is all the rage these days. There’s broad consensus that AI is the next game-changing technology, poised to impact virtually every aspect of our lives in the coming years, from transportation to medical care to financial services. Gartner predicts that by 2020, AI will be pervasive in almost every new software product and service and the technology will be a top five investment priority for more than 30 percent of CIOs.

An area where AI is already showing enormous value is wireless networking. The use of machine learning can transform WLANs into neural networks that simplify operations, expedite troubleshooting and provide unprecedented visibility into the user experience.

But we are only on the cusp of AI’s true potential in wireless networking. Right around the corner is a true virtual wireless assistant that can proactively identify and fix problems and quickly and reliably predict future events.

AI has been studied in research labs and universities for many years, but only recently has the technology found its place in practical applications, due to advancements in compute power, big data and open source technologies.
