Radio Access Network Monitoring and Analytic Solution
As mobile technologies progress more and more intelligence is moving out of the core network, to the Edge and RAN. With smarter devices and more complex signaling, the RAN plays a major part in supporting, and adequately serving subscribers.
No matter how well the core network is performing, issues in the RAN can cause significant quality of experience (QOE) or Quality of Service (QoS) problems. For Carrier Service Providers (CSPs), understanding the RAN means proactively resolving problems, to reduce the risk of widespread, debilitating churn.
RAN monitoring combined with requirements for higher quality expectations for existing 4G services (mobility, data, VoLTE and video), and the arrival of 5G services like network slicing, only magnifies the problems in the RAN around latency, reliability, and additional signaling overhead.
CSPs must be ready to overcome any RAN monitoring challenges that impact time to market, network degradation, and ownership of fault isolation with cross functional teams.
5G RAN Planning and Deployment
CSPs interested in reducing OPEX with 5G must incorporate and achieve visibility into configuration management and automation frameworks to ease operational risks.
With NETSCOUT’s RAN Monitoring and Analytics solution, CSPs will benefit from best practices with a reliable life cycle network planning and oversight strategy for their 4G/5G and Open RAN networks. Starting from pre-launch to operations, RF teams can successfully identify and quickly resolve root cause service degradation anywhere in the network, to optimize issues based on proven data and actionable insights.
