Camarillo-based GeoLinks acquires broadband provider Vectus

Camarillo-based GeoLinks has acquired Southern California fixed wireless broadband provider Vectus.

The acquisition includes an outright procurement of the internet service provider’s fixed wireless network, key staff and existing customer base ultimately expanding GeoLinks’ existing ClearFiber™ network and coverage map.

The Vectus network offers dense coverage throughout Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties.

“With founding roots in Southern California, GeoLinks has been familiar with Vectus’ robust wireless network for quite some time,” said GeoLinks CEO Skyler Ditchfield. “When the opportunity to officially acquire Vectus came to the table, all parties knew immediately that merging networks would be seamless from an operations standpoint, and prove immensely beneficial to existing and future clientele. With contracts finalized, company migration will commence immediately, enabling GeoLinks to further expand its coverage map while simultaneously increasing our overall network capacity, redundancy and ability to deliver higher bandwidth.”

David Saylor, president and chief technology officer of Vectus, said: “Post-acquisition, I have full confidence that all existing Vectus customers will continue to receive the same exceptional service they’ve become accustomed to. At our cores, GeoLinks and Vectus have synergistic beliefs — always put the customer first. By combining assets, all current and future customers will now have access to an even more resilient and redundant wireless network.”

The companies’ clients will encounter no disruptions of service during the network transition, GeoLinks said.

Camarillo broadband provider GeoLinks announced that it had acquired Huntington Beach-based internet service provider Vectus in a cash and stock deal March 20.

The deal brings Vectus’ fixed wireless network and Southern California customer base to GeoLinks, as well as augmenting its team with key staff members, the company said in a news release.

“With founding roots in Southern California, GeoLinks has been familiar with Vectus’s robust wireless network for quite some time,” GeoLinks CEO Skyler Ditchfield said in a news release. “When the opportunity to officially acquire Vectus came to the table, all parties knew immediately that merging networks would be seamless from an operations standpoint, and prove immensely beneficial to existing and future clientele.”

Company migration is expected to begin immediately, Ditchfield added, helping GeoLinks build out its ClearFiber network. Customers should not expect to experience disruptions in service during the transition, the statement said.

GeoLinks debuted at No. 6 on the Pacific Coast Business Times 50 Fastest-Growing Companies list in 2017, and ranked No. 640 on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies. The company reported revenue of $8.8 million in 2016.

The two companies had “synergistic beliefs,” said David Saylor, president and chief technology officer at Vectus, making it a natural fit.

“By combining assets, all current and future customers will now have access to an even more resilient and redundant wireless network,” he said. “Skyler and GeoLinks are highly respected leaders and innovators in the world of telecom, and I speak on behalf of the entire Vectus team when I say that we’re extremely pleased to be combining forces and joining their efforts.”

The companies did not disclose specific financial terms of the deal.

GeoLinks acquires One Stop VoIP, furthers national strategy

GeoLinks acquires One Stop VoIP, furthers national strategy

GeoLinks, an emerging hybrid wireline-wireless service provider focused on business customers, has purchased cloud-based provider One Stop VoIP, signaling the next step toward becoming a larger national service provider.

By acquiring One Stop VoIP, GeoLinks will be able to add Hosted Voice to its growing cadre of data services. Under the terms of the deal, which is GeoLink’s first, the service provider will migrate all of One Stop VoIP’s key staff, existing customers, Unified Communications capabilities, and IT infrastructure.

Now that it has finalized the acquisition, GeoLinks said that it plans to launch a full set of hosted voice services by the end of the third quarter of 2017.

To ensure the transition into becoming a voice provider, GeoLinks named One Stop VoIP CEO Dexter Allen as senior director of VoIP business development. Paul Kasavets, COO and co-owner of One Stop VoIP, will join GeoLinks as senior director of VoIP operations. Allen and Kasavets will join the GeoLinks team in their headquarters on July 12, 2017. GeoLinks said that all One Stop VoIP customers will continue to receive consistent service coverage during the transfer, while GeoLinks’ clients can expect new Hosted Voice deployment by the beginning of September.

GeoLinks CEO Skyler Ditchfield told FierceTelecom that One Stop VoIP products and services align well with the company and its fixed wireless product, ClearFiber.

“We’ll be adding a new offering, which is VoIP, to our product set in the next 45 days,” Ditchfield said.

The acquisition follows the company’s effort to rebrand itself from California Internet LP to GeoLinks as well as its launch into the national market, induction as a competitive local exchange carrier public utility and headquarter relocation.

Besides offering new VoIP capabilities, the service provider is expanding its federal government capabilities as part of its national expansion effort.

“We’re really expanding the government division and it represents about a quarter of our business so it is taking off rapidly,” Ditchfield said. “We’re going to be using that to pull us into new opportunities on a national scale over the next year or two.”

VENTURA, CA (PRWEB) JULY 12, 2017

California Internet L.P., DBA GeoLinks is thrilled to officially announce its first ever acquisition of up-and-coming cloud-based Telecommunication Service Provider, One Stop VoIP.

Additionally, GeoLinks welcomes Paul Kasavets, COO and Co-Owner of One Stop VoIP, as Senior Director of VoIP Operations.

“This has been a historic year for GeoLinks so far,” said GeoLinks’ CEO Skyler Ditchfield. “Recently announcing our company rebrand and launch into the national market, One Stop VoIP represents our first official acquisition. This search has been exhaustive, not just to find the right company but to find an executive team that moves at our pace and fits our culture. It’s not a small feat that GeoLinks has achieved 100% growth six-years-running. Throughout the onboarding process it was evident that both Dexter Allen and Paul Kasavets shared the same capabilities and passion for innovation that GeoLinks values so highly. We have been looking to add Hosted Voice to our service offerings for some time now. One Stop VoIP’s products and services co-align perfectly with GeoLinks as a whole, and with our flagship fixed wireless product, ClearFiber™. Overall, everything about the acquisition is a natural fit.”

Since company inception in 2011, GeoLinks—a licensed, bonded, and insured general contractor—has been entirely self-sufficient, bringing everything in-house to ensure proper service deployment from end-to-end. Coupled with superior US-based customer support, GeoLinks’ acquisition promises continued consistency and superior, reliable Hosted Voice services.

“Our strategic partnership with GeoLinks will allow us to deliver a complete telecommunication solution to businesses, catapulting us to a leading position in the industry,” stated Allen. “One Stop VoIP delivers outstanding value, continuous innovation, and an exceptional client experience. We are passionately committed to helping GeoLinks’ current and future clients grow by equipping them with the strategic communication tools they need to succeed. Both companies’ core services are essential for any business. Prior to the acquisition, we both were missing a piece of the puzzle. I am thrilled that we can now deliver the whole picture to businesses in one convenient package.”

Allen and Kasavets officially joined the GeoLinks team in their office headquarters on July 11th, 2017. All former One Stop VoIP customers will continue to receive dependable service coverage during the transfer, while GeoLinks’ clients can expect new Hosted Voice deployment by the beginning of September 2017.
