New offering will be perfectly timed to help mobile network operators embrace 5G opportunities
London, UK. October 16, 2018. ADVA (FSE: ADV) announced today that it's developing a complete commercial solution to support the Telecom Infra Project's (TIP) Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway (DCSG) group. The new solution will comprise a fully tested and integrated white box gateway device and a comprehensive bundle of installation, commissioning and monitoring services. This announcement comes at a time when mobile network operators are actively seeking cost-effective cell site gateway solutions to accommodate the mass rollout of 5G services. The full solution is expected to be generally available in the second half of 2019.
"What we're announcing today will give mobile network operators a simple and complete solution to a key problem with their 5G rollouts: How do they cost-effectively deploy hundreds of thousands of cell site gateways to meet 5G traffic demands?" said Niall Robinson, VP, global business development, ADVA. "We're helping to steer the DCSG group forward and rapidly bring a solution to market that answers a very real problem for operators across the globe. What stands us apart here is our previous success in the TIP environment. We know what it takes to push an idea from concept to reality and it's something we'll do again here."
ADVA's DCSG solution is the second commercial offering it has developed for TIP. The first solution was built around the open and disaggregated Voyager device for the Open Optical Packet Transport group. In less than two years, this project was taken from a blueprint to a full commercial solution. As with the Voyager product, ADVA will be working closely with partners to develop the cell site gateway device. Currently, Edgecore is providing key support in designing and building the hardware as part of ADVA's integrated solution which, when coupled with supporting services, enables customers to benefit from an open, yet cohesive cell site solution.
"What we're developing with the team at ADVA has the potential to dramatically change the whole nature of cell site gateways," said Luis MartinGarcia, co-chair, DCSG project group, TIP, and manager, network technologies, Facebook. "By moving away from a closed proprietary system to an open, disaggregated and vendor-neutral infrastructure, mobile network operators have a genuine opportunity to increase network efficiencies."
"With ever increasing bandwidth demands and the upcoming rollout of 5G services, mobile networks are perfectly suited for the deployment of high-volume, disaggregated and open network elements, which have been proven to lower costs and increase service flexibility in our customers' telecom and data center networks," said Mark Basham, VP, business development, EMEA, Edgecore Networks. "To meet the requirements for open cell site infrastructure, Edgecore has been working closely with the TIP DCSG group, its lead European operators, and ADVA. We are pleased to be developing the Edgecore cell site gateway in conformance with the TIP DCSG specifications, and look forward to introducing the gateway to the market and to further collaboration with ADVA on complete solutions for mobile network operators."
