Data collected from various sensors such as network counters, traffic (Voice & Data), alarm occurrences in the network etc. were loaded into Spark from SQL server directly. Data was aggregated at every hour. Data was treated to impute missing values, outliers etc Feature engineering was done and additional variables were brought in Used sophisticated and advanced predictive models such as Random Forest, GLM, SVM, Neural network & Decision Tree and ensembled the results from the above models to get more accurate prediction
