AT&T submits specifications for white box cell site gateway routers to power 5G era

Monday 1 October 2018 | 09:32 CET | News
AT&T is releasing the Open Compute Project detailed specifications for a cell site gateway router, following up on an earlier commitment. The company said its "white box" blueprint is a reference design that any hardware maker can use as a guide to build these routers. AT&T plans to install them at tens of thousands of cell towers over the next several years. These routers will eventually form the infrastructure that will enable not just phones and tablets to connect to its mobile 5G network, but also new technologies like autonomous cars, drones, AR and VR systems, smart factories, and more.
