TelcoSwitch has announced the acquisition of Scottish-based IP telephony provider and network operator SureVoIP. TelcoSwitch said the deal adds to its infrastructure while also increasing resilience due to SureVoIP’s data centres in both London and Edinburgh.
As part of the deal, TelcoSwitch will gain its third UK regional office in Aberdeen with the SureVoIP team being incorporated into the wider TelcoSwitch Group, broadening the company’s presence in northern UK regions. SureVoIP founder and Managing Director Gavin Henry will join the TelcoSwitch Group as its newly appointed CIO.
Russell Lux, CEO at TelcoSwitch (pictured), said, “SureVoIP is a company we’ve paid close attention to for the last couple of years, and I’ve known the founder, Gavin Henry, for much longer. His team have built a product set we see as hugely valuable to TelcoSwitch, and a network behind that which will enhance the existing infrastructure within our group of companies. I’m pleased we’ve been able to conclude this deal and delighted Gavin and his team are joining the TelcoSwitch family.”
Gavin Henry, founder and managing director of SureVoIP, said, “TelcoSwitch has grown significantly over the last three years, not just in terms of partners and end-users but also across its product suite. Both companies share the same outlook on where our industry is heading, which is why TelcoSwitch is the ideal home for SureVoIP. We’re extremely excited to be joining Russell and his team in becoming part of the TelcoSwitch Group, and look forward to the opportunities this will offer for partners and customers.”
This marks TelcoSwitch’s third acquisition in seven months following funding from Boost&Co earlier this year. The deal will add IP to the TelcoSwitch portfolio, enhancing its SOHO and micro market offerings.
