Vodafone begins commercial trials of TIP-Incubated DCSG system in South Africa

Tuesday 29 September 2020 | 11:09 CET | News
Vodafone says it has started the first commercial trials in Africa of the Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway (DCSG) system that was developed with the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) in South Africa. The trial taking place within Vodacom South Africa seeks to determine the DCSG's performance in live 4G and 5G network environments, and its ability to interoperate with Vodacom's current radio access network (RAN) providers. This involves using the DCSG to manage commercial traffic in urban, rural and ultra-rural areas.
