DZS Recognizes Digicomm International with Prestigious Top Gun Partner of the Year

Dallas, Texas, USA, Feb. 21, 2022 –  DZS (Nasdaq: DZSI), a global leader in broadband connectivity and communications software solutions, today announced that it has recognized Digicomm International (Digicomm), a leading stocking distributor of broadband connectivity products for the communications industry, as its Partner of the Year in the Americas for 2021. Presented at the DZS Horizons 2022 Virtual Sales & Partner Summit that took place Jan. 24-26, the company honored Digicomm for the partner’s outstanding contributions and top performance over the past year.

“As DZS rapidly continues to expand its presence, market share, and innovation around the globe, a robust and healthy partner ecosystem remains a critical driver of our overall success,” said Tim Mendoza, Vice President of Global Channel Sales at DZS. “We added a number of important value-added partners this year – from technology and solutions partners to integration partners – and expanded our business and relationships with a host of others to ensure service providers and enterprises globally get the world-class solutions, support, and expertise they need to thrive in their markets. We are grateful for the support we receive from all of our channel partners and are proud to recognize Digicomm, who distinguished themselves in terms of orders, volume, and customer support, as our Partner of the Year for the Americas in 2021.”

DZS debuted its relationship with Digicomm at the Fiber Connect Show in Nashville in August 2021 and the company has proven to be a key ally in managing supply chain challenges and facilitating broadband stimulus opportunities since then. Through the partnership, MSOs, incumbent telecommunications service providers, fiber overbuilders, municipalities, electric cooperatives, and enterprise end-customers and resellers have timely access to and reliable sourcing of leading fiber-based Broadband Connectivity, Connected Home & Business, and Mobile & Optical Edge solutions from DZS through Digicomm.

“It has been a pleasure partnering with DZS to provide our joint customers with the best-in-class solutions and services they need to upgrade their networks,” said Rob Donziger, President and CEO of Digicomm. “While so many in our industry and beyond are facing difficult supply chain dynamics, we are proud to collaborate with DZS in ensuring that customers have reliable access to the platforms they need and meeting the strict deadlines they may require. This is especially beneficial to the many U.S. customers who have benefited from government stimulus programs and as a result are accelerating their spending while facing long lead times from other industry suppliers.”

DZS Horizons 2022 united nearly 1,000 attendees from around the globe to hear about market trends, the DZS vision, the latest innovations launched and in development at the company, and success stories from customers and partners. As part of the summit, attendees heard from the DZS executive leadership and product line management teams as well as keynote guest speakers from customers and partners including the 4th Utility from the United Kingdom, i3 Broadband, Windstream and Hosted America in the U.S., Saudi Arabia’s BTC Networks, Canada’s TELUS and key technology partner Plume. The Summit culminated in DZS CEO Charlie Vogt and Chief Revenue Officer Jay Hilbert hosting the Top Gun Award Ceremony, recognizing the top performers across the company and partner ecosystem.
