Viavi Solutions acquires Jackson Labs
The move will strengthen Viavi’s position, navigation and timing (PNT) solutions for critical infrastructure.
Jackson Labs develops and supplies modules, subsystems and box-level solutions that include front-end receivers, transcoders, rack-mounted equipment, and patented retrofit technology. Its customer base includes armed forces, defence contractors, energy distribution infrastructure, low Earth orbit (LEO) operators, and 5G service providers.
The company’s next-generation M-Code solutions will complement and advance Viavi’s timing and synchronisation portfolio at a time when PNT requirements for defence, space, commercial aviation, transportation and telecommunication networks are expanding and becoming increasingly critical.
Oleg Khaykin, President and CEO of Viavi explains: As telecommunications, avionics and mission-critical infrastructure adopt next-generation technology, legacy timing and synchronisation protocols are no longer sufficient. Jackson Labs is a trusted provider of PNT solutions in these markets, and we look forward to addressing these opportunities together. With this acquisition, we are continuing to drive operational scale via the addition of advanced technology and high-performance products that address market segments with strong growth and profitability.”
Said Jackson, CEO of Jackson Labs Technologies adds: “Being a part of Viavi will significantly expand Jackson Labs Technologies’ market reach worldwide, and allow us to further deliver world-class solutions for the rapidly developing PNT landscape as it enters a new era.”
