Infinera Expands Open Networking Solutions with Telecom Infra Project-compliant Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway
Infinera announced today it is reinforcing its commitment to open networking with the introduction of a Disaggregated Cell Site Gateways (DCSG) solution that conforms to the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) DCSG specification. The TIP DCSG-compliant solution is designed to support the efficient and cost-effective backhaul of cell site traffic and is based on an open and disaggregated architecture for existing 2G/3G/4G and future 5G mobile infrastructure.
Powered by Infinera’s Converged Network Operating System (CNOS), a disaggregated carrier-class routing software stack, Infinera will showcase its DCSG solution at Mobile World Congress this week in partnership with Edgecore Networks, a leader in open networking hardware products.
“We are pleased to welcome Infinera to our DCSG open networking ecosystem, which is expanding the scope and value of disaggregation beyond optical transport networks,” said Luis MartinGarcia, Co-Lead, Disaggregated Cell Site Gateways project group, TIP. “Open networks can help operators as they build out 5G infrastructure by reducing costs, expanding and leveraging automation so they are more agile in introducing new services.”
The DCSG specification was developed by the Open Optical & Packet Transport (OOPT) Project Group within TIP in collaboration with leading Tier 1 global mobile operators, including Vodafone, Telefonica, TIM Brasil, BT and Orange.
“As part of our ongoing commitment to open networking, we are excited to demonstrate the value of our disaggregated CNOS software within the framework of TIP’s DCSG specification,” said Mikko Hannula, Vice President, Engineering & Product Management at Infinera. “Our DCSG solution is enhanced by our comprehensive portfolio of software-defined networking-capable networking solutions and end-to-end system integration capabilities.”
