Augtera Networks is the provider of industry’s first AI platform built from the ground up for networks. Augtera Networks brings the benefits of AI-augmented operations, planning and orchestration to physical, virtual and cloud network environments.

The current paradigm of building and operating networks relies on engineering and operations teams to manually mine and find needles in an increasingly large and multi-layered haystack of data. These teams are not able to leverage the richness of the network data and their work flows are reactive while serving applications, customers and users that depend on the network. Augtera’s proprietary AI technology powered by a holistic network model, finds the needles in the haystack automatically and proactively and enables a paradigm shift.

As a result Augtera’s product supports business agility and provides network uptime necessary for increased revenue growth, while minimizing operational expense.
