Monitoring CBRS for Communication Service Providers
Learn how NETSCOUT solutions enable proactive network monitoring for 5G CBRS networks.
Using Smart Data from the NETSCOUT instrumentation layer, nGeniusONE, nGenius Session Analyzer, and nGenius Business Analytics provides visibility into the subscriber experience and allows for end-through-end troubleshooting with actionable intelligence.
NETSCOUT’s analytics solutions provide easy-to-follow workflows and drilldowns. Carriers can execute subscriber-based troubleshooting from a single pane of glass–using only one system, improve first call to resolution (FCS), and optimize the subscriber experience. This blog demonstrates how these solutions enable proactive network monitoring for 5G CBRS networks.
What Is CBRS?
Although the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) can be used for 4G LTE, it is ideally suited to delivering fixed or mobile 5G new radio (5G NR). Many cable, mobile, and multiple system operators have deployed or are deploying a 5G CBRS network.
How to Monitor 5G CBRS
NETSCOUT offers four products communications service providers (CSPs) can use for monitoring CBRS: nGeniusONE (nG1), nGenius Business Analytics (nBA), nGenius Session Analyzer (nBA), and TrueCall, for RAN data.
nGeniusONE for Monitoring Metrics: Use Our Expertise or Get Truly Customized
With nG1, you can proactively monitor your network and get alerted to applications or network functionality degradation or failure. You can use our out-of-the-box key performance indicators (KPIs), or we can work with you to create user-specific metrics and customize these dashboards for your network, including specific interfaces that are active in your network or based on device views for all the different devices active in your network.
Your network technology is very complex. By breaking down these complex technologies into individual functional units and then monitoring each smaller component or process, you can receive proactive alerts from the system and isolate the degradation or failure much faster.
