Public consultation on the draft BEREC Report on challenges and benefits of impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions in the telecommunications sector (including use cases)

13 December 2022

This draft BEREC report on challenges and benefits of Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions in the telecommunications sector (including use cases), ( BoR (22) 191) seeks to identify AI developments in selected use cases, to assess if those use cases may have an impact on regulation, and to raise further awareness of the different use cases as well as the benefits and risks of opportunities regarding the application of AI in the sector.

BEREC develops further on six AI use case areas in telecommunications: Network and Capacity Planning and Upgrades; Channel Modelling, Prediction and Propagation; Dynamic Spectrum Sharing; Quality of Service Optimization and Traffic Classification; Security Optimization and Threat Detection and Fraud Detection and Prevention.

The Report describes the possible uses of AI solutions by NRAs. Whereas operators have found many ways to apply AI solutions, the NRAs have not, so far, much experience in making use of AI. Literature and some examples from European regulators, or regulators from outside Europe show that there are a good number of use cases for AI.
