ADVA introduces multi-layer cell site gateway

ADVA (FSE: ADV) has launched its FSP 150-XG118Pro, a cell site gateway device specifically designed to meet the challenges of 5G. Ideal for deployment at radio base stations, the ADVA FSP 150-XG118Pro meets urgent demand for ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC) in 5G mobile networks and supports a smooth transition from 1Gbit/s to 10Gbit/s services, the company said.

The solution also features a temperature-hardened design and precise synchronization capabilities. What´s more, with its industry-leading demarcation technology and pluggable high-performance server, the FSP 150-XG118Pro enables virtual network functions (VNFs) to be hosted at the edge of the network and gives communication service providers (CSPs) and mobile wholesale operators a risk-free route to network functions virtualization (NFV).

The ADVA FSP 150-XG118Pro has been specifically engineered to support a seamless, cost-efficient transition from LTE mobile networks to 5G. With multi-layer demarcation and precise synchronization delivery, the cell site gateway device meets all current mobile network requirements, and its 10Gbit/s capacity enables MNOs to utilize the full 5G spectrum.

Its open software-defined networking (SDN) control supports automated network slicing and its pluggable server allows it to be upgraded in-service for edge hosting of VNFs. The ADVA FSP 150-XG118Pro´s capacity and edge hosting capabilities also enable enterprises to unlock the potential of the industrial IoT (IIoT). This makes the solution ideal for a wide range of IIoT business cases that require ultra-low latency and massive machine connectivity.
