VMware announced our intent to acquire Uhana, a company that has built a real-time deep learning engine to optimize carrier network operations and application quality experience, deployable in the operator private cloud or public cloud infrastructure.

Alex Wang, Vice President, Corporate Strategy & Development, VMware, said that "Uhana brings critical talent from Stanford, as well as deep AI and machine learning experience specific to mobile carrier networks and their operations. Uhana’s talent, combined with cutting-edge technology like bandwidth slicing and network intelligence, will help to power the VMware Service Assurance portfolio."

"Cloud-enabled services are helping CSPs today, but are also the key to success for tomorrow. In some ways, the shift to 5G marks the “cloudification” of the telecom industry, which requires a new paradigm and mindset. After the transaction closes, we expect Uhana’s capabilities to round out our telco portfolio and help customers continually improve their networks," added Alex Wong.
