Legacy datasets and existing assurance and optimization workflows can no longer keep pace with the complexity, coverage and capacity needs introduced with 5G.
Automatically Engineer the RAN Network for Growth and Performance
You’ve made significant investments in rolling out LTE-Advance and 5G networks to support growing subscriber demands, complex services and revenue generation targets.
Keep the momentum going and assure success with a comprehensive solution designed to address the complexities of the RAN and enable large scale automation initiatives. With correlated, mediated, AI-digestible metadata sets, NETSCOUT’s RAN Optimization and Automation solutions empower service providers to resolve and fine-tune critical carrier capacity, coverage, and quality issues.
Diverse NEM Offerings Lag Behind Technology Innovations
New architectures are paving the way for the introduction of new gNodeBs and 5G-enabled handsets and network equipment manufacturers are working around the clock to win business with leading service providers. Unfortunately, these initial NEM offerings will be limited with basic 5G functionality and growing operational gaps.
To address the inevitable disconnect, service providers need automation tools that can help them deploy and cost-effectively tune complex, new RAN architectures and troubleshoot interoperability.
