DASAN Zhone Solutions has supplied the 10G EPON systems via system integrator and domestic sales agent Kyocera Communication Systems, a KDDI affiliate. The company expects the deal to be the start of an uptick in sales of its PON systems as Japan gears up for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo.

DASAN Zhone Solutions formed in 2016 via the merger of DASAN Network Solutions Inc. and Zhone Technologies (see "Zhone Technologies, DASAN Network Solutions complete merger to form DASAN Zhone Solutions"). The combined company offers systems for broadband access, Ethernet switching, mobile backhaul, passive optical LAN, and software-defined network (SDN) applications.
