5G increases the complexity challenge for any cloud, any network, any workload across physical and hybrid ecosystems.
As CSPs transform their networks to meet 5G use case requirements for Mobile Access Edge Computing (MEC) supporting Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Massive Machine Type Communication (mMTC), and Ultra-Reliable Low Latency Communication (URLLC), the complexity challenge is increased with the introduction of new virtual technologies like edge cloud, network slicing, virtual core, and cloud RAN (C-RAN).
Proactive Service Assurance
CSPs need to address the 5G challenge early with a carrier-grade solution that is designed for the cloud to assure visibility with near real-time actionable insights.
5G roll-outs must be carefully planned to support seamless continuity with existing networks for coverage of geo-analytics, RAN connection data flows, troubleshooting, and service assurance. With NETSCOUT's flexible 5G solution, CSPs will achieve:
- End-to-End Smart Visibility into the edge cloud and virtual RAN ensuring accurate metrics for all 5G services
- Visibility at every phase of the 5G life cycle from pre-launch, launch, to operations
- Scalability in a carrier-grade solution that reduces Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
- Flexible monitoring capabilities with complete visibility across multi-generations of mobile network technologies
- Seamless monitoring for 5G deployments with or without Control and User Plane Separation (CUPs)
- 24x7 automated monitoring of network slices with visibility into north/south/east/west traffic for both public and private cloud applications and services
- Maximum efficacy of 5G radio bearers to minimize RRC reconfiguration when 5G hands down to LTE.
NETSCOUT's solution delivers end-to-end Smart Visibility from RAN to Core throughout the 5G life cycle
Our powerful software based geo-analytics platform helps you accurately measure performance and effectively pinpoints subscriber-affecting issues across multi-generation (3G/4G/5G) of mobile networks for mobility, data, and VoLTE services in hybrid network environments.
Our solution assures continuous visibility 24 x7 by automated monitoring of service chains or network slices for east, west, north and south traffic to fulfill rapid response for all 5G use cases.

The Power of Location in Networks Without Borders
NETSCOUT’s “Visibility Without Borders” vision is centered on the belief that digital transformation and virtualization erase the borders across elements and layers that exist in today’s networks and bring end-to-end visibility into how the networks work and perform. Tearing down borders that isolate network components frees operators from the constraints of location, but it does not abstract network performance from location. On the contrary, networks without borders unlock the power of location.Download PDF
