Advancements in technology such as 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, and the edge place network engineering in a new ecosystem—one that is compelled to promote diversity via the expansion of knowledge, skill sets, and collaboration. The next generation of networks are heading toward an open and decentralized landscape and will engage more stakeholders, including hyperscalers, system integrators, and edge operators. Synchronicity in technical language among these groups can enhance collaboration, encourage cross-functional team learnings, and support the customer experience.
NETSCOUT’s updated Mobile Networks Map provides information on all technologies—2G/3G, 4G, 5G, and IoT. Learn about the interworking between the physical and virtual elements of the 5G Core (5GC), 5G access (NG-RAN), and IoT networks. Explore key terms, discover new protocols and interfaces, and much more.
Mobile networks are complex, and communications service providers (CSPs) must deal with these complexities to support new and existing technologies while assuring and protecting the connected world.
NETSCOUT’s Mobile Networks Map is a reference tool primarily for network engineers who deal with planning, deploying, operating, and maintaining the mobile network, but the poster can also offer insights for other technology partners and customers who are interested in learning about the mobile network.
