If we can connect the moon – why not Africa?

08 May 2024

Nokia Bell Labs has recently been selected to participate in the 10-Year Lunar Architecture (LunA-10) program, a U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) initiative that will design an integrated multi-service architecture to support a thriving economy on the Moon in the next decade and beyond. LunA-10 will design the essential infrastructure framework capable of supporting industrial activities, as well as scientific discovery.

Nokia will collaborate with the 13 other companies specialising in areas critical to establishing an integrated commercial economy on the Moon. Nokia Bell Labs will be responsible for recommending a reliable, high-performance communications infrastructure, and will work closely with other LunA-10 companies to ensure that infrastructure may be efficiently transported and built on the lunar surface and that it would have reliable power sources once installed.

BSS Magic streamlines telco operations

08 May 2024

Totogi has launched BSS Magic, a groundbreaking platform that revolutionizes the telecom sector with the first fully AI-generated custom Business Support System (BSS), eliminating the time and prohibitive costs typically associated with traditional BSS implementations.

Facilitated by an intuitive conversational AI interface, BSS Magic simplifies the BSS construction process by leveraging five types of Generative AI (GenAI) technologies.
BSS Magic offers a streamlined and cost-effective approach tailored for modern telcos. Leveraging the simplicity of natural voice commands, BSS Magic can automatically generate the necessary software code to produce the precise BSS needed - without requiring engineering expertise. This advanced AI platform integrates several types of GenAI, including Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Generation (NLG), computer vision, code generation, and advanced avatar rendering. It functions as an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) powered by AI, removing the dependence on skilled programmers and making BSS development accessible, customizable, and cost-efficient for everyone.
