The “What” and “Why” of AI: OSS President Rahul Atri shares “intent-driven” vision with experts at TM

By Suddhaloke Choudhury
Global Content and Social Media Manager Rakuten Symphony

April 4, 2024

Rahul Atri, President, OSS Business Unit and Managing Director, Rakuten Symphony India, took to the stage at the India leg of TM Forum’s DTW Asia Tour for a fireside side with Aaron Boasman-Patel, Vice President of AI, Labs and Innovation at TM Forum to discuss the current telecom landscape, its future, the importance of India for a product company like Rakuten Symphony and more.

The telecom industry needs to fail fast and learn from its previous mistakes if it is to fully capitalize on the opportunities presented by AI and automation, Rakuten Symphony OSS President Rahul Atri told an audience of experts at DTW Asia Tour, Mumbai. “Worst case scenario, we will fail for a few months, but eventually, we will get there,” he said. “Even if everyone gets to Level 3 or 4 automation, it will be a huge success.”

Moving the needle will require an industry-wide commitment in order to avoid a scenario in which, 2 years down the line, the telecom industry will still be concerned with declining ARPU, Atri said on his panel session ‘intent-driven networks and OSS of the future’ which was hosted by moderator Aaron Boasman-Patel, Vice President, AI, Labs & Innovation, TM Forum.

“Technology is not the problem. The creation of siloed organizations and thought processes is.”
-Rahul Atri, President, OSS BU and Managing Director, Rakuten Symphony India

Telecom operators have been plagued with dwindling ARPUs and underwhelming monetization opportunities with 5G. The key to the problem, Atri said, is how the industry currently operates. With the ever-increasing adoption of AI, there is vast amounts of data ready to be accessed which, unfortunately, lacks consolidation. “Technology is not the problem. The creation of siloed organizations and thought processes is. Everyone sitting here needs to come together and decide how to tackle the problems of the future.”

Having observed how legacy operators work, Rakuten Symphony was quick to focus heavily on automation, knowing that it is a critical component of running cloud-native networks. According to Atri, “We are focused not on the technology itself, but the outcome that implementing the technology brings. It is not about adhering to the industry standards, but the value we as an organization deliver, which makes us unique.”

According to Atri, “With AI coming in, mindset is key.” He felt that now, there is an increased ease of defining “How”- how you work with AI models, how you implement them, how you achieve certain outputs, remove dashboards, generate insights and actions. In order to build the network of the future, it is important to understand the 'what'.

“What is the success criteria for the network? What does the vendor or software provider want to achieve? What are the use cases which will help the entire ecosystem make money, how can the next software release be taken to market and more importantly, what is the exact problem the customer wants to solve. These are the questions that are critical if you want to deploy networks of the future,” Atri said.

Use cases of Future Networks

Atri emphasized the importance of understanding the use case for future networks, which would then help the orchestration or OSS formulate the best way to convert the use case into configurations of the networks and make the networks available directly.

“Another important part is assurance. We have deployed an edge or a slice, but maintaining and assuring the quality of service (QOS), that is critical,” he said.

“For networks of the future, with flying drones or smart cars connected to each other, connectivity issues are unforgiveable. So, we need to get rid of our habit of focusing on buzzwords and on Day 1. We need to start thinking about Day 2 as well, taking all of the aspects of building and maintaining the network into consideration.”

“We are proud to be one of the few companies who are helping change the perception of India, from being an IT and services hub to a product hub for incredible innovations across industries.”
Rakuten Symphony India: The organization’s R&D Hub

Atri closed out the discussion by focusing on the importance of the company’s India operations. With around 65% of the total workforce, the 2 main offices of Indore and Bengaluru are the product R&D centre of Rakuten Symphony. “We are proud to be one of the few companies who are helping change the perception of India, from being an IT and services hub to a product hub for incredible innovations across industries,” he said. Giving a glimpse into some of the projects being undertaken by the India team, Atri said that the team in India is currently working on the challenge of building a platform for autonomous networks and delivering programs such as run-time upgrading of network-wide cloud infrastructure.

Rakuten Mobile Surpasses 6.5 Million Mobile Carrier Service Subscribers

Tokyo, April 8, 2024 – Rakuten Mobile, Inc. today announced that the number of subscribers for its mobile carrier service has surpassed 6.5 million as of April 8, 2024, which marks the fourth anniversary of its service launch.

Since the full-scale launch of its mobile carrier service in April 2020, Rakuten Mobile has continued on its mission to democratize the mobile industry, offering an affordable and simple service plan while expanding the Rakuten network area through the build-out of base stations and roaming agreements.

Rakuten Mobile has broadened its appeal to customers by strengthening its service offerings, launching the “Saikyo Family Program” in February 2024, which awards family subscribers a 100 yen (110 yen including tax) monthly discount on the Rakuten SAIKYO Plan. In addition, its “Saikyo Youth Program” launched in March 2024 awards Rakuten SAIKYO Plan subscribers 22 years old and younger 110 Rakuten Points every month. The two programs combined give eligible customers monthly service for an actual price as low as 780 yen per month (858 yen including tax) – the lowest currently available among all carriers in Japan – by subtracting the 100 yen discount from the Saikyo Family Program and applying the 110 Point back reward from the Rakuten Youth Program to the monthly fee of 980 yen (1,078 yen including tax) for up to 3GB of data usage. This competitive price point has found favor with customers across Japan.

Rakuten Mobile’s services for business customers recently changed its name to “Rakuten SAIKYO Plan Business” in March 2023, which combined with its Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE) service customers, now provides services to over 10,000 enterprise customers.

Rakuten Mobile will continue its efforts to improve network quality and expand its range of services so that customers can enjoy best-in-class mobile services anywhere in Japan.

Rakuten Viber's New AI-powered Feature Summarizes Group Chats in an Instant

- Leveraging the technology behind ChatGPT, it condenses long conversations into bullet points to ensure important details don’t get lost.

Tokyo & San Francisco, April 11, 2024 – Rakuten Group company Rakuten Viber, a global leader in private and secure messaging and calls, has leveraged the technology of OpenAI to launch a conversation-summarizing AI feature for unread messages in group chats. Developed to meet the needs of millions of busy users, this cutting-edge solution offers a seamless and rapid way to distill essential information from up to 100 unread messages in a chat into a concise summary.

The AI summarizer extracts the most important parts of a user's group conversations and, in an instant, concisely conveys in bullet points what has been discussed, not only saving time and energy but also enhancing decision-making and productivity. The rapid delivery helps users stay up-to-date without going back through a long scroll of messages.

Initially focusing on group chats, the AI summary feature will cater to the most popular form of communication among Viber users. They will be able to pull together key decisions, action items, and discussions to easily use as a reference point. Imagine the convenience this will allow for parents managing their children's school or sports team events through collaborative discussions, family members planning a birthday party for a loved one, or groups of friends making travel arrangements.
Activation is effortless: users entering a group chat with unread messages will receive a prompt to obtain an optional summary of the missed part of the conversation. Importantly, these summaries are visible only to users who request them, ensuring privacy and confidentiality.

Data privacy and safety were top-of-mind considerations in the development of this feature. The AI chat summary content does not include any identifiers beyond usernames, so specific conversations cannot be externally connected to any group members. Additionally, Viber does not access or save conversations or summaries on its servers, creating a secure and private user experience.
“We’re constantly seeking new and innovative ways to make our users’ lives easier and simpler,” said Ofir Eyal, CEO of Rakuten Viber. “That’s why we’re harnessing the power of generative AI to save them time and make sure they don’t miss any important conversations: From classmates discussing school projects to friends or family making weekend plans on the go, our users can get up to speed in a flash on anything they might have missed.”

The feature is gradually rolling out to users in the U.S., the Philippines, Ukraine, Japan, Bulgaria and Poland with more countries to follow soon. It supports iOS and Android platforms and comprehends more than 50 languages.

About Rakuten Viber

The global user base has access to a range of features like one-on-one chats, video calls, group messaging, and updates and discussions with their favorite brands and celebrities.
