Telecom Tech Outlook | Wednesday, July 21, 2021

5G has already been rolled out worldwide, but it mainly operates based on existing 4G LTE network infrastructure, while 5GC networks are being built at rapid speed to drive new revenue streams for service providers globally.

FREMONT, CA: NEXCOM, a leading supplier of network appliances, has announced that its latest uCPE—DTA 1164W—has successfully attained results and passed tests to be deployed in both 5G Non-Standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) network environments. DTA 1164W is a desktop entry-level uCPE, designed ready to meet the requirements of AT&T Open Compute Project (OCP) specification for customer premises equipment. Powered by Intel Atom® C3000R series CPU, with 8 LAN ports for multi-connectivity and PoE+ function, DTA 1164W also supports 5G FR1, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 5 and 6, and features TPM and Intel® QAT for enhanced security.

For testing in 5G NSA mode, existing network architecture built by the biggest mobile service provider in Taiwan was used, and DTA 1164W delivered satisfactory results, corresponding to the requirements for 5G upload and download speeds. As for testing in SA mode, a 5G SA base simulator was used instead. Again, DTA 1164W did not fail the expected functionality and proved itself as a qualified appliance for the current network infrastructure and the future network over a long-term horizon.

5G has already been rolled out worldwide, but it mainly operates based on existing 4G LTE network infrastructure, while 5GC networks are being built rapidly to drive new revenue streams for service providers globally. DTA 1164W, an all-inclusive 5G uCPE, proven in NSA & SA modes, can be easily adopted for fast deployment as the best choice uCPE.
