4G/5G Mobile xHaul

Fast Rollouts of 4G/5G Deployments

Programmable cell-site gateways (CSGs) with fronthaul/midhaul/backhaul support and O-RAN 5G architecture support. 

Supports CSG for multiple 5G RAN splits and colocated 4G/5G sites, as well as demarcation for wholesale mobile services over the same transport network with complete visibility and controlled hand-off.

4G/5G are also referred to as 4G & 5G LTE routers. 4G & 5G mobile routers are designed to handle high-speed data transfer and low latency, providing optimal network performance and reliability.
