How We Innovate

VIAVI Solutions, created from JDSU, was founded in 1923 as Wandel and Goltermann, a European company that grew from two technicians building and selling radios, to one of the world’s largest suppliers of electronic test and measurement equipment. VIAVI has continued to build expertise through investment in R&D and the acquisition of key technologies from companies including Cobham, Agilent, Arieso, Network Instruments, OCLI, RPC Photonics, 3Z Telecom, and Trilithic – just to name a few.
