Great Mobile Experiences Rely on RAN Performance

No matter how well the core network is performing, issues in the RAN often lead to significant quality of experience (QOE) or Quality of Service (QoS) problems. Empowered with a deep understanding of the RAN, Carrier Service Providers (CSPs) can build and tune better performing access networks, proactively resolve emerging problems and reduce the risk of widespread, debilitating subscriber churn.

Increasing quality expectations around existing 4G services (mobility, data, VoLTE and video) and the evolution to 5G and cloud architectures only magnify the complexity of RAN innerworkings that contribute to issues including latency, reliability, and signaling overhead.

To meet these new challenges, LTE & 5G RAN planning and operations teams rely on NETSCOUT solutions to protect and accelerate time to market, identify and resolve network degradation and efficiently triage fault isolation across cross functional teams.

Ensure the Success of 5G Planning and Deployment

NETSCOUT’s RAN monitoring and troubleshooting applications are deeply rooted in field-proven best practices. Delivering reliable, life cycle network planning, operations and optimization strategies, NETSCOUT addresses the holistic needs of 4G/5G, Cloud and Open RAN networks.

From pre-launch to operation, RF teams can successfully identify and quickly resolve root cause service degradation anywhere in the network while optimizing performance based on proven datasets and actionable insights.
