Software giant, Microsoft has announced that it is launching its next-generation hybrid cloud platform "Azure Operator Nexus" for communication service providers, according to a report by TechCrunch.
The all-in-one platform, Azure Operator Nexus, will allow these telecom companies to run their carrier-grade workloads both on-premises and on Azure. It will assist its telecommunications firms to improve and monetise their existing infrastructure while also lowering their overall cost of ownership according to the company.
The tech giant is also launching Azure Operator Voicemail, a solution that enables operators to transfer their voicemail services to Azure as a fully managed service, as well as Azure Communications Gateway, a service that connects fixed and mobile networks to Teams. It will further launch two new "AIOps" services; Azure Operator Insights and Azure Operator Service Manager.
The company has been investing heavily in artificial intelligence recently and has undergone the integration of OpenAI's ChatGPT technology into some of its products. Last month, the company said its aim is to imbue such AI into all its products going into the future.
