Communications service providers (CSPs) are embracing network automation as a key initiative to tackle the operational complexity introduced by network function virtualisation (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN) and cloud-native 5G networks, combined with the need to support complex digital services based on network slicing using intent-driven networking.
This report provides:

- key findings from the survey and a brief analysis of them
