Canada’s Aastra buys Swedish software vendor Telepo

By

Canadian-listed enterprise communications vendor Aastra Technologies’ European subsidiary has acquired Sweden-headquartered cloud software solutions vendor Telepo.

The deal has been consented to by Mitel Networks (TSX: MNW) which signed an agreement last November to buy Aastra. Mitel says Telepo’s multi-tenant solution will complement the company’s current multi-instance and virtualised solution upon completion of the merger of with Aastra. The Mitel-Aastra deal is expected to close by the end of March.

Astra has operations in Australia and New Zealand.

Announcing the acquisition of Telepo, Aastra said the company offered carrier-grade, cloud-based, multi-tenant Unified Communication (UC) solutions, based on a web-centric architecture which is “highly scalable, flexible and offers best-in-class mobile integration, including the full range of standard voice, PBX and call center features with fully-integrated security and pre-built web based portals for multiple tiers of administrators.”

The Aastra statement to the Toronto stock exchange said:

“Telepo gained traction in 2013, with over 40% growth in active users as compared to 2012. Telepo ended the year with over 90,000 active users and became profitable as a result of its continued focus on developing its innovative multi-tenant solution addressing the requirements of its service providers and their enterprise customers.

“Telepo now provides its UC solution through 16 service providers, including the two largest telecom operators in Sweden.

“Aastra will leverage Telepo’s solution and growth opportunities to enhance its offerings for the European market, now enabling its customers to decide whether they wish to implement market leading premised-based, virtualised or multi-tenant cloud-based solutions depending on their particular needs.”
