Addressing the service delivery management challenges resulting from growing mobile data and multimedia traffic volumes, the nGenius solution analyzes both data plane and control plane traffic to reveal how network, application and service enabler interdependencies affect overall service performance and impact the subscriber experience. Operators can visualize complete subscriber sessions in real-time, from the data center, to the mobile core, to the cell site to instantly expose specific areas of the network with poor performance or service failures. Consequently, mobile operators gain real-time and historical views into service delivery performance across 3G and LTE/EPC IP networks to obtain rich business and operational intelligence and assure the subscriber experience. “Just as IP has transformed service provider networks, NetScout has transformed the way service providers assure service delivery over next generation IP networks,” said Steven Shalita, vice president, marketing for NetScout. “NetScout is honored to have been recognized by such a distinguished panel of judges for the Best of 4G Awards. We remain deeply committed to the service provider market and to driving technology innovation that delivers a uniquely differentiated unified service delivery management platform for 3G, LTE and mobile cloud environments to address the challenges of the next wave of mobile network innovation.” About 4G World 4G World is the first and only conference and expo covering the entire ecosystem of next-generation 4G technologies that enable the mobile Internet revolution, including mobile network infrastructure, advanced devices, applications and content.
