Both the AGCV208S and AGC7008S from the Open Networking AG series are designed as Disaggregated Cell Cite Gateways (DCSG) in the TIP (Telecom Infra Project) OOPT project, which offer an open and disaggregated architecture for existing 2G, 3G, 4G and future 5G mobile network infrastructures.
Based on Broadcom's DNX series, the AGCV208S provides 300G switching capacity while the AGC7008S provides 120G bandwidth for smaller applications.
Both platforms come with the same form factor for indoor and outdoor installation with wide operation temperature, in a fully equipped 1RU box with a wide array of connectivity options including 1G, 10G, 25G and 100G. Multiple time injection interfaces, such as 1PPS, 10MHz, GPS and BITS enable you to deploy these boxes in different topology and application.
"With end-to-end traffic management capability, DNX series provide a scalable and programmable platform for mobile network operators," said Guy Lange, PM of Broadcom's CSG Group.
The exponential growth of data traffic is driving carriers and service providers to adapt the disaggregation model to meet the requirements of the coming generation of networks, particularly in the area of mobile connectivity. The disaggregation of hardware and software helps to add new services more easily and substantially reduces capital and operating costs (CAPEX and OPEX) while dramatically cutting time to market. Conventional gateways in 2G, 3G and 4G networks would have to be equipped with extensive capacity and connectivity upgrades to achieve the performance required for 5G base stations.
