- ADVA disaggregates software from hardware for truly open mobile transport infrastructure
- First network operating system verified to run on bare-metal switches from multiple vendors
- Mobile network operators can now cost-effectively roll out DCSG solution fully compliant with TIP specifications
ADVA (FSE: ADV) today announced the general availability of its Ensemble Activator, the market’s first carrier-grade network operating system (NOS) designed for disaggregated cell site gateways (DCSGs). Already successful in trials with multiple global mobile network operators (MNOs) including Telefónica and Vodafone, Ensemble Activator disaggregates hardware from software, giving customers new levels of agility and freedom. Developed as part of the Telecom Infra Project (TIP), the feature-rich software enables MNOs to move away from closed proprietary systems and build open, vendor-neutral transport infrastructure with best-of-breed components. Now ready for commercial deployment in mobile networks, it offers MNOs a clear route to cost-effective mass rollout of 5G services.
We are very excited about ADVA’s Ensemble Activator, as it offers something new to the market and enables a strong ecosystem for DCSG technology.
