Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a global data center solutions provider, and DZS (NASDAQ: DZSI), a global provider of optical and packet-based mobile transport, broadband connectivity, and software defined networking solutions for service providers and enterprises, have announced a strategic partnership. The two companies jointly aim at accelerating virtualization and containerized Open RAN-based infrastructures for telecommunications service providers and enterprises.
DZS and QCT have partnered to address carrier and operator business possibilities in 5G, edge cloud, and network virtualization by combining DZS mobile transport, telco edge, and converged network experience with QCT’s server and NFV infrastructure integration skills.
To expedite the automated deployment and orchestration of 5G networks, solution blueprints with verified configurations of QCT systems, DZS Cloud software, and other hardware and software pieces will be produced through this cooperation. The collaborative Converged Edge Cloud Blueprints are designed for 5G and FlexRAN-based deployments at the network edge, and include support for complementing network accelerators and offload functionalities, as well as 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors.
“The collaboration between QCT and DZS brings tremendous synergies,” said Mike Yang, President of QCT. “QCT’s profound infrastructure experiences coupled with DZS’s solid cloud-native, software-defined networking expertise promises a converged system blueprint for edge cloud and better 5G service experiences for telco customers.”
“We are excited to work with QCT and their portfolio of infrastructure solutions to enable open software-defined network virtualization and cloud-native automation solutions,” said Charlie Vogt, President and CEO of DZS. “Our partnership reflects a shared commitment to the realization of network-aware cloud technologies, open networks, and support customer choice, enabling operators to monetize their 5G investments with DZS Cloud and QCT platforms.”
