Custom, Innovative Design, Precision Manufacturing, and Intelligent Supply-Chain Management

Connectivity is the essence of the cloud. Whether it’s a sensor transmitting telemetry or a laptop running a SaaS application, machines need to connect to data centers. On the client side, this means integrating technologies such as near field communication, WiFi, and Bluetooth into a myriad of hardware solutions. On the network side, this means leveraging optical components such as transceivers, amplifiers, and interconnects. As a leading electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider for diverse cloud components, Jabil is a trusted partner for device OEMs, cloud service providers, and network operators worldwide.

Internet of things (IoT) devices typically use sensors and connectivity elements mounted in a wide variety of materials such as glass, textiles, plastics, and ceramics. They require custom, innovative design and precision manufacturing using advanced techniques such as active alignment. And cost-effectively manufacturing optical-networking components always requires extraordinary expertise with managing a global supply chain.

With operations in over 90 sites in 23 countries, we’ve designed and built cloud-enabled components from smart plugs to wavelength division multiplexers. We build these and other vertically-integrated solutions on a foundation of:

  • Product strategy and conceptualization — research, branding, user experience, and industrial design
  • Design engineering and rapid prototyping — optimized product before production
  • Materials technology — molding and tooling, visual and complex mechanics
  • Process innovation — advanced manufacturing, assembly, test processes
  • Automation — high-efficiency, complex, and high-tolerance process robotics
  • Design verification and test development — production test development, meticulous failure analysis, and reliability testing

And, Jabil test platforms optimize final assembly, test, and pack (FATP) processes from firmware programming and board test through customization, labeling, and packaging.
