TOKYO, July 27, 2016 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu Limited today announced that Fujitsu Network Communications Inc. has acquired TrueNet Communications, Inc., a leading national communications infrastructure engineering contractor, for undisclosed terms.
TrueNet, headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, will retain its distinct brand identity through the transition into a wholly owned subsidiary of Fujitsu Network Communications.

This new leader reduces operational, organizational and communication silos, creating cohesive services to any organization considering investment in hybrid broadband infrastructure.
"TrueNet's OSP capabilities are an ideal complement to Fujitsu's portfolio, creating a total broadband solution provider," said Greg Manganello, senior vice president and head of services at Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. "With this ISP/OSP design control and single point of responsibility, Fujitsu can ensure a seamless, integrated broadband network and minimize project risk. As a result of this acquisition, whether customers select individual services or an end-to-end solution, we can now help them realize their visions faster. We believe that broadband turns towns into communities, states into job creators, and enterprises into powerhouses. Now we can help our customers harness the transformative power of broadband even faster."
