Fujitsu Enters into Strategic Partnership with Terawave

Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe partners with Terawave for Next-Generation PON Solutions.

May 09, 2005

Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Ltd, the leading supplier of high performance telecommunications solutions, has announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with Terawave Communications Inc. to develop and bring to market next generation PON access solutions.

The agreement will combine Fujitsu's market leadership in broadband access technology with Terawave's world-class PON technology to create a new range of fully integrated and managed next generation GPON access solutions. Commenting for Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe, General Manager Andy Stevenson said:
“Fujitsu is taking a strategic market lead, bringing together appropriate technologies in strategic partnerships to create a new breed of integrated end-to-end next generation solutions. This agreement with Terawave reflects our commitment to provide our carrier customers with broader, more comprehensive systems, based on established relationships and genuinely integrated technologies, reflecting the carriers' clear requirement to work more closely with a smaller number of vendors in their networks. Both Fujitsu and Terawave hold the same customer-responsive ideals, and we look forward to a highly successful working partnership.”

Ray Lin, Chairman and CEO of Terawave, said:
“We are honoured by the opportunity to partner with Fujitsu, to integrate our products and technology into the Fujitsu GeoStream Access Gateway multi-service access portfolio. This agreement confirms our strategic commitment to the UK and European markets. Our joint effort will result in the most advanced and fully integrated GPON-based access platform in the market.”
