Michael Ling, General Manager of Foxconn's Communication and Network Solutions Business Group added, "Through this strategic alignment with Cisco, we will be able to leverage the operation's unrivalled talent, technology, and expertise in video and telco infrastructure to broaden our end-to-end vertical supply chain services in the video, broadband, networking, and telecommunications infrastructure sectors."
