Dimension Data (Didata) has moved to bolster its videoconferencing skills by snapping up UK Tandberg and Cisco partner mvision for an undisclosed sum.
The network integrator said mvision – which supplies, installs, maintains and manages videoconference and telepresence end points – could lay the foundation for it to roll out a global managed video services offering.
Johannasburg-listed Didata said there is little overlap between the two firms’ customer bases, leading to potent cross-sell opportunities. Mvision will be integrated into Didata in time, it added.
Ton van Horssen, UK managing director of Didata – which is on the verge of being acquired itself by Japanese telco NTT – said: “The acquisition bolsters Dimension Data's ability to deliver a full suite of visual communications solutions and complements our existing converged communications proposition in the UK.”
Didata did not give an indication of mvision’s size but the London-based outfit recently claimed it was enjoying 60 to 70 per cent annual growth.
Mvision managing director Terry Dwyer said: “We are very pleased to be joining the Dimension Data family. Being part of a global, financially strong organisation with a track record of over 27 years bodes well for our clients."
