IBM and NETSCOUT Collaborate

NETSCOUT Will Extend Its Visibility Without Borders into IBM Cloud for Telecommunications

Carrier service providers (CSPs) are rapidly moving to cloud platforms to realize digital transformation goals and innovate with technologies such as 5G, 5G Enterprise, virtualization, business analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT). By using platforms that optimize their ability to deploy capabilities such as network slicing, edge computing, and big data analytics, CSPs can build new revenue streams from enterprise and consumer services that extend far beyond standard connectivity.

Is Your Information Close Enough to the Edge

As 5G rolls out, added capacity and performance is set to enable new applications from augmented and virtual reality to ultra-high definition video, such as 4k and 8k. However, provision of mobile broadband is the initial 5G application being rolled out by service providers because there’s a clear market need for it, and service providers are familiar with the network demands of mobile broadband services.


Just because more capacity is available for mobile broadband with 5G, does not mean that it should be used unnecessarily by sending terabits of data across the network to be analyzed by centrally-located cloud servers. Instead, the extra capacity presents an opportunity for service providers to place compute power at the Edge of the Network, so analysis can be performed, and to only send relevant data or insights on to centralized servers. This opportunity means so-called mobile edge computing (MEC) devices are being deployed by enterprises.


Solution Highlights

  • Utilizing the Edge of the Network effectively
  • Advantages utilizing your Edge can provide
  • Maintaining visibility into all parts of your network including the Edge

5G Makes Virtualization Vital, Not Optional

Leading CSPs are embracing the concept of virtualization technologies but are proceeding with caution due to the immense complexity involved in the management – or orchestration – of virtualized infrastructure. This stall is set to end with the arrival of 5G mobile networks. For CSPs to showcase the advantages of a fully virtualized operational environment, they'll need smart visibility across their network.


Although the telecom industry has set a course towards virtualization of infrastructure enabled by network functions virtualization (NFV) and software defined networks (SDN), this disruptive strategy is not rolled out comprehensively, writes Bruce Kelley, the Chief Technology Officer(CTO) of NETSCOUT. Leading service providers have embraced the concept of virtualization technologies but still only run relatively low volumes of their total network traffic over their virtual infrastructure.


Solution Highlights

  • Justifying a 5G network with NFV technology
  • SD-WAN flexibility and revenue generation
  • Benefit of virtual probes and Smart Data technology
