Ceragon Networks, a solutions provider of 5G wireless transport, announced that its IP-50FX Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway (DCSG) solution is available for sale and deployment.
The IP-50FX has been awarded with the Requirements Compliant ribbon by the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) and is listed on TIP Exchange. TIP is a community of communication service providers and solution companies working together to accelerate the deployment of open, disaggregated, and standards-based solutions for high-quality connectivity.
“Ceragon’s IP-50FX solution met all requirements defined by the DCSG subgroup, and it has been awarded TIP’s Requirements Compliant Ribbon for software and hardware,” Diego Mari Moreton, Meta Connectivity Technologies & Ecosystems Manager and Lead of the TIP Open Optical Packet Transport project group, said.
The IP-50FX integrates Ceragon’s DCSG hardware platform with an advanced network operating system (NOS) software by IP Infusion and Ceragon’s own Radio-Aware Open Networking (RAON) software. With RAON the cell site gateway acts as a virtual IDU, with a single IP address offering centralized management capabilities for all connected outdoor radios for easier configuration and monitoring of the entire cluster.
“The release of this unique DCSG solution is sure to impact the market by providing a better solution for cell sites at a much lower cost. It eliminates vendor lock-in to support true open networking and brings together the best of two worlds in 5G mobile networking – Routing and Wireless Transport,” Doron Arazi, Ceragon Networks CEO, said.
