Intermedia Acquires Cloud Communications Company Telanetix

The merger provides the third-party Microsoft Exchange hosting provider with full line of cloud-based business VoIP phone, SIP trunking, and individualized services.

Third-party Microsoft Exchange hosting provider Intermedia has merged with cloud-based communications provider Telanetix Inc. The merger provides Intermedia users with broadened cloud-based services, including access Telanetix’s cloud-based business VoIP phone service (hosted PBX), SIP trunking service, and modular cloud-based individualized services.

The scalable carrier-grade network AccessLine from Telanetix is geared primarily for SMBs. According to Intermedia chairman and CEO Phil Koen, the offering enables Intermedia to “further execute on the company’s Office in the Cloud.”

“With AccessLine, we are gaining a team of about 100 individuals with significant, successful experience developing and delivering next-generation hosted voice services that will meet the rapidly evolving communications needs of our customers and partners,” Koen says.

Of its part in the merger, Telanetix says the transaction will enable the company’s 40,000 customers and partners to “have access to an even broader suite of cloud service.”
“Intermedia has become a fast-growing, innovative cloud services platform provider,” says Telanetix and AccessLine CEO Doug Johnson. “We expect our customers and partners will also benefit from our operational, development, and financial resources, enabling us to continue with our commitment to deliver services of the highest quality and reliability.”

Intermedia’s acquisition of Telanetix will cost Intermedia approximately $55 million. Upon closing of the transaction, Intermedia, already the world’s largest third-party hosted Exchange provider, would become one of the largest providers of cloud voice and hosted PBX services for SMBs in the U.S.
