Vodat is Buying Axonex


December 06, 2017

Networks and related services can help enable companies with their communications. But the fragmented market for telecom and other tech solutions can be overwhelming for some businesses. And the desire by companies to use technology not just to communicate, but to help deliver specific business outcomes as part of digital transformation initiatives, requires more than just technology.

That’s why many solutions providers in this arena are moving to become more than just infrastructure suppliers, they want to be trusted advisors.

In a move that would seem to move it further in that direction Vodat Communications Group is buying Axonex Ltd.

The companies did not announce the financial details of their combination, which marks Vodat’s first acquisition. But they did say three Axonex shareholders will remain with the business and become shareholders in Vodat.

Vodat, which is backed by Maven Capital Partners, sells communications solutions including cloud, data, disaster recovery, IP telephony, private managed networks, security, and Wi-Fi services to U.K. businesses at more than 9,000 locations.

Cheltenham, England-based Axonex is an IT solutions specialist with expertise in data centers, network infrastructure, security, and unified communications. It’s a Cisco Gold Partner. Axonex also sells solutions from Lifesize, Microsoft, NetApp, Nimble Storage, Palo Alto, Red Box Recorders, SecurEnvoy, Sourcefire, VMware, and others.

In past 12 months Axonex has doubled its staff and moved to new offices. Revenues have increased by 68 percent, but it didn’t specify over what time period or the actual figures.

Recently the Axonex blog has talked about such topics as bare metal servers and the ability to turn a Cisco UCS server platform into a dedicated load balancing appliance with KEMP LoadMaster, and providing guest Wi-Fi to the public with cloud managed infrastructure and social media authentication solutions from Meraki and Purple WiFi.
