Broadvox and Cypress complete merger
Last fall, SIP trunking provider Broadvox and unified communications (UC) as a service provider Cypress Communications announced that they were merging and it looks those plans have been completed.
The two companies both offer hosted VoIP services and with the merger, each fulfills a particular target market for the other. Broadvox's Go!VBX traditionally targeted SMBs and the Cypress C4 IP solution has mainly targeted the enterprise--the merger will see the newly formed company with the largest VoIP footprints with more that 10,000 business customers and even more end users. The merger combines the companies strengths--Cypress gets access to Broadvox's VoIP network backbone to direct origination and termination of voice traffic, while Broadvox will expand the use of its network backbone as well as enhance its carrier, SMB and SME offerings with the Cypress Communications' unified communications services suite.
While the merged company will be identified as Broadvox, Cypress will be retained as a brand of the Broadvox service offerings.
"The merger between Broadvox and Cypress combines complementary product portfolios well-suited to compete in today's emerging Unified Communications marketplace," stated Brent Kelly, Senior Analyst and Partner at Wainhouse Research said in a release. "The combined company offers a broader range of services that spans carriers, premises-based solutions, and hosted UC for SMB and enterprise customers."
