Masergy snaps up cloud specialist Broadcore
Masergy Communications has ramped up its cloud services with the acquisition of Broadcore Communications, a provider of cloud communications solutions.

The acquisition will add a full suite of global cloud communication services including unified communications, SIP trunking, mobility solutions and custom integration to Masergy’s current offerings.

Chris MacFarland, CEO of Masergy, said: "The cloud communications market opportunity is expanding rapidly, and with this transaction, we can immediately offer these cloud solutions to enterprises on a global basis."

Broadcore will continue normal operation but as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Masergy. The Broadcore service platform will be directly embedded into Masergy’s global MPLS network platform.

"With this acquisition, Broadcore will continue on as a provider of cloud communications, but with a network and parent company supporting our offerings and our customers," said Monty Ferdowsi, president of Broadcore.
