Voice and data integrator Nexon Asia-Pacific has bought some 200 customer contracts from fiscally troubled service provider National Telecoms Group (NTG) for an undisclosed sum.
Charles Assaf, managing director at Nexon, said the buyout had just been completed and included NTG’s entire Alcatel business, spare parts, support and maintenance contracts.
“There’s 200 clients, ranging from SMBs to larger corporates, a 50:50 mix,” he said. “About 10 of those sites have multiple offices with more than five sites across Australia.”
Nexon, a premier partner of telecommunications vendor Alcatel, wanted to fast-track its voice business, taking on a bunch of clients ready to migrate to IP telephony at a time of increased telecommunications refresh, Assaf said.
Nexon hopes to convert many of the 200 plus customers to IP-based technology and increase its voice converge business by 50 percent.
The integrator has been on the acquisition and consolidation trail for some time. Nexon Asia Pacific recently acquired a Sydney-based secure information systems provider, Ready Systems Australia, for an undisclosed sum.
That acquisition would enhance the integrator’s security services offering and cement relationships with security software vendors.
Nexon Asia-Pacific also put together a new channel program to hawk its private virtual LAN package.
