Techniques herein provide a capability to predict failures of hardware by using onboard sensors and provide for the ability to move from detection to prediction for hardware failures. In turn, such techniques can help to reduce downtime due to marginal hardware and improves network availability. The techniques can also help to reduce unnecessary maintenance and changes related to replacing hardware that has not failed, which can lead to business efficiencies for both customers and vendors and may become even more important in a Network-As-A-Service (NAAS) context in which both sides are paid by the vendor.
