In pursuit of this goal, all stakeholders in the industry are directed towards three key focus areas, working together to propel the industry toward the realization of Highly Autonomous Networks. 1. Accelerating Level 4 innovation and planning to facilitate the commercial use of Level 4. 2. Expediting the development of Level 4 standards to promote multi-vendor interoperation and interworking standards that support key Level 4 technologies. 3. Speeding up the progress of making Level 4 technological breakthroughs in converged awareness, intent-driven closed-loop, digital twin, generative AI, native intelligence, and other cutting-edge technologies.

At the summit, TM Forum, China Mobile, and Huawei representatives shared their strategies, values, and industry collaboration cases for Autonomous Networks to guide the industry’s development. Representatives of other companies, including Accenture, GSMA, Telecom Argentina, and Orange, actively shared their practical experiences on the implementation methods and systems, progress, and achievements of Autonomous Networks.
