Award win for NETSCOUT
After research into the global wireless network monitoring and service assurance industry, Frost & Sullivan (www.frost.com) awards NETSCOUT (www.netscout.com) with its 2022 Global Company of the Year Award for its wireless network monitoring and service assurance.  

As a global leader in wireless network service assurance NETSCOUT’s solutions enable seamless monitoring and analysis of complex modern-day wireless networks for enterprises and communication service providers (CSPs).   With its range of virtual appliances NETSCOUT helps customers extend their application monitoring deeper into their networks and traditional data centres; confidently migrate applications into public cloud environments; and gain a comprehensive, cohesive view into the resulting hybrid and multi-cloud environment.

Commenting on the research, Navdeep Saboo, Frost & Sullivan’s best practices research industry analyst, says “NETSCOUT has re-engineered its packet-based monitoring solution from traditional box hardware server-based solutions to software, which is in tune with the trend of cloudified networks on the enterprise and service provider sides, to meet the end-user requirement for monitoring a virtualized network environment.”

NETSCOUT’s Smart Data technology and nGeniusONE applications provide network operators with the intelligence and tools to address their legacy and hybrid networks by maintaining end-to-end, multi-vendor, and multi-generational (4G/5G) network visibility throughout these transitions and evolutions.  The company offers a range of innovative validation and service assurance solutions for wireless networks, and its innovative TrueCall geo-analytics platform is a highly efficient and next-generation way of augmenting traditional field drive testing.  TrueCall implementation can reduce field drive testing requirements by up to 50% and allow at-a-glance heat maps with geo-analytics, resulting in significant cost savings and enabling CSPs to optimise cell sites.

“Poised for favourable growth in the coming years because of the continuous development and deployment of 5G and cloudified networks, NETSCOUT has remained aligned with the continuous market evolution, modifying, and upgrading its offerings to match customer needs and industry trends,” continues Saboo.  “Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents a Company of the Year award to the organization that demonstrates excellence in terms of growth strategy and implementation in its field.  The award recognizes a high degree of innovation with products and technologies and the resulting leadership in terms of customer value and market penetration.”
