Lisbon, Feb 15, 2019

Proef and B-Yond have signed a partnership agreement to bring proven world-class Artificial Intelligence (AI) based network automation solutions to Portuguese and African Communication Service Providers (CSPs).

As CSPs embrace Digital Transformation to 5G, virtualized network functions, and cloud-native infrastructure, they are dealing with increasing network complexity and operational challenges. B-Yond’s proven AI network automation solutions have helped to streamline processes and delivered significant operational and capital savings at the largest CSP networks in the World. Through this strategic partnership, Proef and B-Yond will bring these solutions to CSPs in Portugal and African countries such as South Africa, Angola, Namibia, Rwanda or Mozambique. This will complement Proef’s current integrated offer in four key sectors: Telecom, Power, Cities & Territories and Corporate.

The value proposition of this joint commercial offer is based on B-Yond’s INFINITY platform, that leverages industrialized AI, combining real-time predictive analytics with automation to enable self-provisioning, self-optimizing, and self-healing networks and build an operating system for the autonomous network.

Our telco customer P&L’s are under significant pressure. As they transform their networks and deploy new dynamic network technologies, they need new innovative solutions to deal with increasing network complexity and exponential growth in data. B-Yond is one of the fastest growing, proven software providers in the AI network automation space and we are proud to partner with them to bring these leading-edge solutions to our customers, said Rui Alheiro, Chief Growth Officer at Proef.
