Editors of Billing World and OSS Today Magazine Select NETSCOUT's nGenius Solution as Finalist for Best New Product Award

March 27, 2007

WESTFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 27, 2007--NetScout Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTCT), the industry pace-setter for advanced network and service assurance solutions, announced today that its nGenius(R) Performance Management System was selected by the editors of Billing World and OSS Today Magazine as a finalist for the 2007 Excellence Awards, in the Best New Product category. The awards recognize the best vendors in the billing and operations support system segments of the telecommunications industry.

Based on technology developed and deployed to monitor the world's largest private IP networks, the nGenius System's proven IP performance management technology has been adapted to address the needs of service providers to protect the quality of their customers' experience with IP-based services. Traditionally, service providers have turned to performance management tools that reactively track individual calls or transactions end-to-end using signalling information for understanding customer experience. With the advent of IP services as the primary growth driver in the industry today, there is both an opportunity and a requirement for proactive performance monitoring and rapid problem resolution at the service delivery level, rather than at the call level. The nGenius System addresses this new requirement by integrating three critical data sets - real-time KPIs (key performance indicators) for proactively identifying problems, customer-by-customer flow data for highly efficient top-down troubleshooting, and detailed packet sequences for deep forensic analysis.

"For service providers, assuring customer experience is a top priority. The key ingredient to making the leap from traditional service assurance to customer awareness is to always have the appropriate visibility into the services as they are delivered, the customers consuming those services, and the network infrastructure that's delivering them," said Jim Frey, NetScout's Vice President of Marketing. "NetScout's history includes leading the development of standards for monitoring the performance of IP-based applications, and we are now applying that expertise to solving the major challenges providers face in assuring the quality of converged triple- and quad-play services."

Before selecting the finalists, Billing World and OSS Today Magazine editors thoroughly evaluated all of the nominations that were submitted and completed extensive research into the companies that were considered.

"The competition was fierce as usual, so being selected as a finalist is truly a recognition of the excellence a company is bringing to the OSS/BSS sector and its customers. It is good to see so many companies succeeding and finding innovative ways to help carriers and operators achieve their goals," said Edward Finegold, Editor-in-Chief of Billing World and OSS Today Magazine, in announcing the finalists.

The list of finalists can be seen at http://www.billingworld.com/secondary.cfm?page=awards. Award winners will be announced at Billing and OSS World 2007 in Chicago, IL at the end of April.

Providers are invited to see how the nGenius System can help them assure the quality of converged triple- and quad-play services by visiting NetScout at the Billing and OSS World 2007 exposition, in Booth 421.
