LG-Ericsson USA Launches, Integrates Accton's SMC Networks

LG-Ericsson USA launched its new brand of data and voice networking product for business customers. The company's product portfolio includes IP PBX systems and a full complement of business-class digital, IP, WiFi, SIP, soft phones, and multimedia terminals, as well as a host of smart, fully-managed and unmanaged switches with a robust Network Management Services (NMS) and Unified Device Manager (UDM) platform to provide easy management.

LG-Ericsson USA (formerly Edgecore Networks), is a joint venture between Korea-based LG-Ericsson Co. and Taiwan-based Accton Technology Corporation, a global provider of voice and data networking solutions. LG-Ericsson USA is based in Irvine, California.

LG-Ericsson owns 60 percent share in the joint venture while Accton owns 40 percent. Accton also own SMC Networks, which will now be part of LG-Ericsson USA, although the company says some SMC branding will continue forwards.
