According to the Telecom Infra Project (TIP), Disaggregated Cell Site Gateways (DCSGs) are a family of aggregation routers based on an open and disaggregated architecture for existing 2G/3G/4G and 5G mobile infrastructures. It supports Layer 2, Layer 3, and MPLS features - with time synchronization protocols such as IEEE-1588 v2 and Synchronous Ethernet.
Why a Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway Solution for 5G Networks?
• 5G Readiness: Mobile operators are rapidly building new capacity to respond to the introduction of 5G services. The traditional cell site gateway cannot meet the exponential growth of backhaul traffic.
• Open and Disaggregated Architecture: With an open hardware platform architecture, operators now can obtain greater control over the development of enhanced network services, and enjoy the flexibility of working with best-in-class suppliers.
• Cost-Effective Solution: Due to the Millimeter Wave technology used by 5G, hundreds of thousands of small cells need to be installed. Operators need a cost-effective solution to reduce both CAPEX and OPEX without compromising features, performance, and quality.
