RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. is partnering with HFR, Inc., a South Korean telecom technology specialist, to produce the Smart CPRI Transport solution at Fujitsu’s Richardson, Texas-based manufacturing plant. Fujitsu will increase its skilled manufacturing workforce to produce the product, which creates an intelligent means by which mobile network operators can implement Centralized Radio Access Network (C-RAN) architectures.
By bringing Smart CPRI Transport manufacturing to its Richardson facilities, Fujitsu delivers additional value to its carrier customers. Carriers often demand new product orders be processed and shipped very quickly to keep implementations on schedule. By manufacturing solutions in the United States, Fujitsu can deliver the needed product in a timely fashion. And because the Smart CPRI Transport solution is made in the same manufacturing plant as other Fujitsu solutions, carrier customers can have complete confidence in its performance and reliability.
“Our domestic manufacturing operations are strategically important to the business and greatly valued by our customers,” said Barrie Hall, senior vice president of fulfillment, Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. “The manufacturing investments Fujitsu continues to make in Richardson allow us to produce the highest-quality communications networking equipment on the market. Additionally, our reputation is motivating third-party communications technology designers to consider Fujitsu for their North American manufacturing, creating yet more U.S.-based manufacturing jobs.”
“We want to be associated with Fujitsu because they understand and are trusted by North America’s leading carriers,” said Peter K. Cho, senior vice president of North American Operations, HFR, Inc. “By partnering with Fujitsu on the production of our fronthaul solutions for C-RAN, carriers know they’ll receive the most innovative solution manufactured to the highest quality standards.
