A Catalyst for O-RAN and V-RAN

The comprehensive set of cutting-edge Fronthaul, Midhaul and Backhaul capable DZS Chronos solutions enable topologies and architectures for Open RAN and Virtual RAN approaches using both packet and optical transport technologies.

The DZS Chronos mobile transport portfolio includes an array of products for end-to-end mobile transport systems with indoor and outdoor options for small cell and macro deployment sites, network edge datacenters and regional hubs.

With embedded mobile-specific features that are enabled when software features are licensed, these products include industry standard network and compute offload functions that form the basis of a versatile, distributed, “micro-cloud” designed for latency-critical real-time edge services.

The DZS Chronos solutions portfolio is a critical enabler for virtualized RAN, Open RAN and Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) architectures, providing connectivity for software-based baseband units (BBU) or distributed units (DU) / centralized units (CU) and Radio Units (RU) in distributed or centralized topologies.

DZS, enhanced by DZS O-series coherent optics products, are leading the industry with the combination of edge intelligence, flexible deployment options, and high performance required for the 5G era.


The DZS Chronos Portfolio

DZS Mobile Transport solutions powered by the fully SDN-enabled sdNOS Network Operating System, includes the following product families:

An expanding family of environmentally hardened, intelligent edge units developed to empower Open RAN, vRAN and MEC deployments requiring packet-based Fronthaul functionality, with options for direct radio interface capabilities using CPRI, eCPRI, OpenFH, or Radio over Ethernet technologies.

These scalable, 100G-capable MPLS access/aggregation multilayer switches provide high performance Cell Site Router (CSR) as well as spine element switching functions for disaggregated multi node SDN designs.

These NG-PON, XGS-PON and GPON-based products enable operators to architect their mobile networks for cost effective network edge Midhaul and Backhaul at scale while leveraging SDN control and NFV capabilities.

These environmentally hardened optical transport products are optimized for high capacity and long-reach mobile backhaul scenarios and have completed the Telcordia/Ericsson OSMINE certification progress.

These high-density, small and large port count in-building switches offer Power over Ethernet and clock distribution functions especially suited to small cell and Wi-Fi access point connectivity.
