PCCW Global acquires Syntelligence
PCCW Global has expanded its unified communications offering through the acquisition of Syntelligence.
Syntelligence’s service platform offers cloud-based integrated voice, video and collaboration solutions. It targets service providers and their enterprise customers, claiming to offer them transparency and control over their communications services via a customer portal.
Syntelligence’s portfolio includes Voxclever, a UK hosted Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) provider, and Weavesys, a software development business that offers a service orchestration platform for unified communications.
“As businesses migrate to the cloud, demand has increased for integrated products which are delivered with a greater degree of self-service capability. The acquisition of the Syntelligence companies provides PCCW Global with the ability to accelerate the development of our global unified communications offering and deliver an easy to use, flexible self- service model for our customers.” Marc Halbfinger, CEO at PCCW Global.
Last month at ITW 2015, PCCW Global, China Telecom Global (CTG) and Chunghwa Telecom International (CHTI)signed agreements to facilitate the interconnection of their IPX communities to create a unified IPX platform for Greater China.
