Juniper Research predicts that telcos will increase their spending on AI for network management to $20 billion by 2028, an increase of more than 3 times from the $6 billion level in 2024. This growth is expected as telcos expand 5G networks globally and develop future 6G networks. AI software will play a crucial role in optimizing network performance and security, accounting for over 50% of operator spending by 2028.
