NETSCOUT Accelerates the 5G Transformation Opportunity for Service Providers

NETSCOUT’s InfiniStreamNG Smart Data Platform Delivers Visibility
for Cloud, Network or Service

WESTFORD, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;$NTCTlt;/agt; lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#5Glt;/agt;–NETSCOUT
, (NASDAQ: NTCT), today announced support for the
entire 5G life cycle including planning, rollout, and optimization.
Through the availability of its InfiniStreamNG™
(ISNG) Smart Data platform
, NETSCOUT provides a carrier-grade
solution that delivers visibility for cloud and network infrastructures
and next-generation services.

Designed for the cloud, the ISNG Smart Data platform allows carriers to
overcome 5G transformation challenges, assure new virtual
infrastructures and deploy next-generation services. NETSCOUT’s Smart
Data provides unified, precise and early visibility into the risks to
applications and services while addressing technology borders formed
within the modern hyper-converged, hybrid cloud environment.

Our customers must be ready to compete in this 5G world with NFV-ready
monitoring solutions for new services including IoT that are running in
the edge-cloud,” said Bruce Kelley, senior vice president, chief
technology officer, NETSCOUT. “These new services demand Visibility
Without Borders, which translates into having a consistent and precise
view into the health and performance of service levels. This gives
service providers visibility across complex environments, including
virtual and physical resources, making it possible for service providers
to effectively plan for, launch, and operationalize 5G offerings with

Planning for 5G

Some of NETSCOUT’s largest customers are currently using technical
innovations with NETSCOUT
5G propagation modeling
for planning and optimizing 5G services.
This approach provides carriers with 5G millimeter wave RF coverage
maps, helping to quickly and efficiently pinpoint cell deployment.

Launching 5G Services

The latest release of the ISNG 5G solution is 3GPP Release 15
compliant, with support for non-standalone 5G networks, end-to end, with
or without Control and User Plane Separation (CUPS). ISNG provides
continuity for existing services by providing monitoring, visibility,
and troubleshooting for 4G LTE/5G New Radio (NR) deployment options with
or without CUPS. The solution supports virtualization of the mobile
network with orchestration, edge-cloud and network slicing, providing
carriers with visibility across their complex, hybrid network.

Operationalizing and Maintaining 5G Networks

Because Smart Data is available from ISNG, carriers now have
multi-generational networking data, including visibility into the 5G
customer experience. With NETSCOUT’s approach of Visibility Without
Borders, carriers can ensure accurate metrics from subscriber wire data
and network performance for 5G services for the full lifecycle from
pre-launch, to launch, to operations.
