"Being a provider of open network solutions to tier one network operators worldwide, and the leading contributor to the OCP, ONF and TIP open communities, Edgecore understands operators' requirement to reduce the cost of mobile network deployment while moving toward a more consistent and open infrastructure across mobile broadband and transport networks. We are highlighting Edgecore's Cell Site Gateway family together with our 100G core router, which are designed for mobile and telecom operators to meet their future open networking growth." Said Jeff Catlin, VP Technology, Edgecore Networks.
Mobile operators are rapidly building new capacity to respond to demands for new services and subscribers with existing 3G and 4G infrastructures, while planning for the introduction of 5G services. Open network solutions are ideal for this high-volume cell site and cell site aggregation infrastructure, as the use of disaggregated, open hardware and software reduces operator costs, increases choice and quickens the pace of innovation. Edgecore Networks provides cell site gateways for deployment at cell sites or as first aggregation points for multiple cell sites, and deep buffer switches for aggregation within the mobile backhaul network. The Edgecore products offer a choice of open source and commercial software from partners to enable deployments meeting specific operator requirements.
Edgecore offers three compact, temperature hardened cell site router models with different performance classes, all powered by Broadcom's StrataDNX Qumran silicon family, and Intel x86 CPUs. The DCSG family supports a full complement of timing and synchronization features including Synchronous Ethernet, IEEE1588v2, GPS receiver, PPS, ToD and BITS, to accommodate wide array of use cases.
