Edgecore's Disaggregated Cell Site Gateways (DCSG) are a 1RU fully-featured cell site router with a wide range of Ethernet connectivity options for client and network sides. As a cell site gateway, DCSG supports Layer-2, Layer-3 and MPLS features - with native time synchronization protocols such as IEEE-1588 v2 and Synchronous Ethernet for the mobile base stations.
Mobile base stations typically connect to a cell site gateway using RJ45 or SFP Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. However, to accommodate the increased capacity required in modern 4G and coming 5G networks, base stations will also use 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ interfaces. This makes most cell site routers currently deployed unsuitable to carry 5G base station traffic.
The Open Optical & Packet Transport (OOPT) Project Group within the Telecom Infra Project (TIP), in conjunction with several leading global mobile operators - Vodafone, Telefonica, TIM Brasil, BT, and Orange - produced the definition of an open white-box cell site gateway device that operators can widely deploy in their current 2G/3G/4G cell sites, but that also supports the port speeds and densities which will be required for 5G networks.

Disaggregation has become a staple in today's data centers, but Service Providers and Telcos are starting to embrace open networking as it addresses some fundamental problems within this domain where typically the networks have been built over decades using a multitude of different and complex proprietary equipment.
We understand that our success is driven by yours, that's why we provide the highest level of service to make your life easier.
See what some of our customers have to say.
"I've worked with a whole bunch of different distributors and some of them I loved some of them I didn't, but EPS just exceeds every promise. No one knows all of the players in the disaggregated networking space the way EPS does, EPS has been fantastic for me in making it really simple by gathering all the parts together. EPS just help me make my customers fantastically thrilled with the service I provide."March 15, 2019
"The level of service that we're getting from working with EPS has been tremendous. Anytime we send over a request to EPS the turnover is quick, we have quotes within an hour or two, that's not typical in our industry, especially when we're working to get competitive with pricing. On countless occasions EPS has come through for us and then we in turn come through for our customers. At the end of the day we have happy customers, and we’re happy - and EPS made it happen."March 15, 2019
"We were looking for quicker access and a better price point to offer for our customers. My Account Manager at EPS is extremely responsive and quite literally in minutes has quotes back to me with timeframes, deliverables and tracking information for everything supply-chain related. The knowledge base, the availability, the engagement - it never feels like I'm being sold to, it always feels like I'm being guided through a problem to be solved so that's why I would absolutely recommend EPS to anybody."March 15, 2019
