NextGen communications and managed services provider BCM One has acquired privately-held Wholesale Carrier Services (WCS), a facilities-based owner and operator of an IP-enabled voice and data network.

WCS’s product line includes UCaaS, business connectivity and managed services will be joined into BCM One’s nextgen communications and managed services portfolio.

The acquired brand operates a Sonus-powered network with POPs in Tier III data centres across multiple switching hubs, POPs, colocation, and NOCs throughout North America and Asia.

BCM One said the acquisition expands its global presence into the Asia Pacific region and enhances support for the channel partners and businesses it serves.

WSC claims to be one of the largest US OP networks with over nine million buildings interconnected via 300 network providers worldwide across 500 cities.

The WCS brand and array of data and voice solutions will be integrated into the BCM One brand by the end of the year.

This is BCM One’s sixth acquisition as part of its continued investment in next-generation voice and managed network services.

WCS joins BCM One’s family of brands including SIP.US, SIPTRUNK, nexVortex and SkySwitch.

Geoff Bloss, CEO of BCM One, said: “WCS is a natural fit, and there are tremendous synergies with our solutions portfolio and family-like culture.

“Their carrier-grade network, worldwide presence in 500+ cities and channel focus align with our continuing investments in those areas.”

Chris Barton, President & CEO of WCS, added: “We’ve seen BCM One achieve tremendous growth over the past couple of years.

“We’re excited to join forces and play a role in furthering the company’s solution, channel, and geographic expansion.”
