ASOCS Senior Advisors Announced in Japan

February 8th, 2023, Rosh Ha’ayin Israel, and Tokyo Japan. Following the announcement of certification of ASOCS O-RAN radio units, today ASOCS announces that two senior industry veterans have joined ASOCS as Senior Advisors as ASOCS looks to further focus on the Smart Manufacturing industry and in particular enable stable communications for Industrial Robotics.

Mr. Taro Izawa joins the ASOCS team in Japan after two decades of seniority at Toppan Inc, and Mr. Taro Kamagata arrives with senior experience at Mitsubishi Research Institute, Inc.

Both bring more than two decades of Manufacturing experience and Taro Izawa has served Japan Automatic Identification System Association (JAISA) as the Chairman and Taro Kamagata has served the Japan Information Technology Services Industry Association (JISA) as Executive Board Member. Mr. Izawa and Mr. Kamagata are set to advise ASOCS on the key needs to meet market demands and open conversations with the manufacturers themselves.

Mr. Izawa commented, “I am excited to join ASOCS at this point in time. The need for Local 5G (also known as L5G and Private 5G) in furthering smart manufacturing has come to maturation and ASOCS O-RAN solution is suited both to the needs of Industry 4.0 and due to its inherent openness meeting delivery demands of the system during a period where global supply chain issues have led other network solutions to suffer from long delivery times.”

Mr. Kamagata also commented on joining ASOCS by saying: “I believe that the implementation of Local 5G networks will enable the introduction and advanced operations of a wider variety of industrial robotics and AI. Local 5G will greatly improve the productivity of the manufacturing and logistics industries in Japan. ASOCS’s solutions are highly flexible and cost-effective, and I’m confident that they will greatly contribute to promoting the introduction of L5G in Japan.”

“We are delighted to welcome Mr. Izawa and Mr. Kamagata to ASOCS,” said Gilad Garon, ASOCS CEO. “Having two Senior Advisors of their caliber is not only a huge coup but also a clear show of intention on how seriously ASOCS intentions are in cementing our foothold in Japan as a core market. We welcome them both and look forward to an exciting journey together.”
