AirFrame Fronthaul Gateway

Enabling efficient, fronthaul networks


Nokia AirFrame Fronthaul Gateway (FHGW) is a network element enabling operators to manage radio equipment connections.

FHGW connects legacy CPRI-based radios to the new Ethernet-based all-in-cloud BTS architecture, while the radio CPRI interfaces remaining unchanged.

The Fronthaul Gateway is the first solution built and tailored to fully support edge and far-edge cloud deployments offering an extremely compact footprint with the AirFrame open edge server chassis.
