Ethernet network, cloud and hosting provider BSO has strengthened its capabilities within the wholesale telecoms, cloud and technology sectors with the acquisition of IX Reach, a global provider of network services.

IX Reach is BSO’s third acquisition in 18 months and follows Apsara Networks, a leading supplier of radio frequency connectivity to financial markets, and PROceau, a high-availability and business critical managed hosting and IaaS company.

IX Reach’s diverse network covers 170+ points of presence (POPs) across North America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and most recently Africa. Its customer base includes 300+ carriers, ISPs, content providers and networks of all sizes and IX Reach has a diverse partner ecosystem of more than 70 cloud, IXPs, data centre and SaaS companies. IX Reach’s products and services include direct connectivity to cloud, SaaS and IXPs, data centre to data centre connectivity, flexible SDN automation, remote peering solutions, and network virtualisation.

This strong market position, when united with BSO’s network infrastructure and expertise will enable the group to continue to invest heavily in R&D and push new boundaries in product delivery and provisioning automation. BSO claims that it is now the largest privately owned telecom operator in the world, with a footprint of 330+ POPs supported by 3 state of the art networks complementing each other and serving its customers’ wide needs.

Michael Ourabah, Founder and CEO, BSO
The seamless and automated Global Infrastructure Fabric that we have engineered is second to none and will enable clients in any region and vertical markets to integrate their infrastructure needs effortlessly.

Stephen Wilcox, President and Founder, IX Reach
This is a great move for IX Reach that secures long term investment for us, improving our customers’ experience and seeing acceleration of our future growth and expansion...
