NetScout Systems said it has a new software module that enables mobile operators to dig deep into performance metrics to improve 2.5G and 3G network operation.

The new module integrates with NetScout’s nGenius service assurance solution. The software allows network operators to track real-time and historical performance metrics from aggregate service views, to individual subscriber sessions, down to deep packet-level analysis.

Essentially, the new capability helps mobile operators monitor all subscribers, all services and all traffic as mobile data traffic continues to skyrocket.

NetScout said that to date, two tier-one North American mobile operators have purchased the product and that five global operators have successfully completed trials, and another four trials are currently in progress.
