Oakland, California and Somerset, New Jersey – September 24, 2019

DASAN Zhone Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: DZSI or “DZS”), a global leader in fiber access transformation for enterprise and service provider networks and VCTI (formerly known as Velankani Communications Technologies, Inc.), today announced a partnership that will enable service providers to expand and innovate broadband services with greater customer centricity and lower costs.

As the industry transitions to 5G, service providers are challenged with 5G’s density, latency, and speed requirements, making the integrity of network planning more critical than ever. This partnership allows service providers to automate the planning and design process of their fiber broadband networks and optimize their path to 5G.

In addition, VCTI offers products that automate and scale the orchestration of broadband service delivery and simplify access network operations. This provides immediate relief to service providers on the manual costs that are in place to mitigate fall-out while also improving time to revenue and the customer experience.

“The VCTI software product suite offers powerful analytic tools for service providers seeking to evolve their networks to 5G and other Gig services and grow their broadband subscriber base more efficiently. Their products are a natural complement to DZS and our world-class fiber, copper and 5G solutions,” said Mitch Fleming, VP Global Business Development, DZS. “Service Providers need innovative software solutions that enable new service roll-out and customer data analytics engagement based on an agile cloud delivery model. The DZS-VCTI partnership is uniquely able to meet our joint customer needs.”

“We are delighted to work with DZS and their leading suite of solutions to enable broadband connections across 5G networks, as well as copper, fiber and fixed wireless networks,” said Raj Singh, CEO, VCTI. “We share a commitment to enable Service Providers to rapidly deploy and deliver services that optimize ROI and deliver on their customer’s experience objectives by digitizing their access network.”

The DZS-VCTI partnership will be introduced at the DZS User Group meeting in Pittsburgh, PA, September 24, 2019.
