Voice-over-IP managed services and solutions provider VoIP Logic (News - Alert) today announced an agreement at ITEXPO West that it will absorb Sundial Network Services, a VoIP engineering professional services firm.
The move will merge two companies into one. Sundial personnel will serve more than 12 former Sundial customers under the VoIP Logic umbrella. Service providers will have access to VoIP Logic’s technology and managed services portfolio, while VoIP Logic customers will have immediate access to a wider array of professional services.
As part of the merger, Sundial CEO, Ardeshir Ghanbarzadeh, will assume the role of vice president of operations for VoIP Logic, company officials said.
"Over the last two years, Sundial has successfully delivered to its clients the highest level of expert technology consulting, outsourced operations and professional services,” Ghanbarzadeh said in a statement. “Our services portfolio is a perfect complement to VoIP Logic's Managed Services and on-demand delivery of VoIP products and services sought by the service provider and carrier markets."
VoIP Logic CEO Micah Singer (News - Alert), who presented a session at ITEXPO earlier today, said the marriage is an ideal match for the company.
“This transaction makes perfect sense on all levels for VoIP Logic, as our customers will now reap the benefits of Sundial’s professional services engineering expertise and, through Ardeshir, structured management approach to our operational deliverables,” Singer said in a statement.
VoIP Logic has grown steadily over the last year. Between 2007 and 2008, company officials reported a revenue increase of more than 90 percent. The company offers a set of Voice over IP managed services, VoIP engineering and integration professional services.
Earlier this year, VoIP Logic made headlines when it unveiled a new set of mobile applications that facilitates easy integration with Apple’s (News - Alert) mobile operating system. The new application was introduced as an interface extension to VoIP Logic’s Cortex Operational Support Systems. As TMCnet reported, Cortex is a middleware that allows carriers and service providers deploy and manage customized, scalable VoIP Enterprise Class 5 systems and solutions.
