Intercity Telecom has purchased cloud-communications company Gage Networks for an undisclosed sum.

The deal was completed through Intercity Networks which is a subsidiary of the Birmingham-based Vodafone service provider.

“This acquisition will allow us to deliver an ambitious growth plan and move towards combined IT & Telecoms solutions to our customers, building on the global infrastructure that Gage Networks provides us.”

Gage Networks chief executive officer said: “There is a clear strategic alignment between our businesses and we look forward to combining our expertise to enhance our proposition for our customers and employees alike.

“With a shared vision and strong values, and by combining our expertise and resources, we will be able to provide a market-leading suite of IT and communications technologies for our existing and future customers.”
