I am looking at machine learning for predictive analytics. We are building
an SDN controller that has access to large volumes of network data and
events. We can look at traffic shifts over a period of time and look for
underlying patterns in that and use that to predict how the network
services could be provisioned.

Do we have any use case document that describes how we could apply machine
learning/advanced analytics principles in the networking domain?

Cheers, Manav
