DZS, a supplier of broadband connectivity systems and platforms, and communications software solutions, announced an agreement with Jabil to significantly expand its manufacturing.
Jabil has manufacturing facilities in Vietnam, Malaysia, Ukraine, Hungary, Brazil, the U.S. and Mexico. This flexible manufacturing strategy is augmented by DZS’ own significant production line investments at the company’s U.S.-based facility in Seminole, Florida.
Prior to this expansion, Jabil had been manufacturing elements of the DZS O-Series carrier-grade optical products for the network edge, featuring 100 Gigabits per second (Gbps) and above capacity, and environmentally hardened Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) coherent optics in its Penang, Malaysia facility.
“Jabil provides DZS the technical alignment, manufacturing scalability, and agility required to meet the strong demand for leading-edge, next-generation fiber access products and 5G xHaul offerings in 2021 and beyond,” said Charlie Vogt, President and CEO, DZS.
“DZS is positioned for rapid growth at the convergence of fixed and wireless networks,” said Emanuele Cavallaro, President of Communications, Cloud & Compute Division at Jabil.
