Vocus and Amcom create largest trans-Tasman network infrastructure provider

The Amcom acquisition brought across extensive network assets

Vocus Group has now positioned itself as one of the largest trans-Tasman network infrastructure providers following its acquisition of Amcom, it's largest buy to date.

The Amcom acquisition brought across extensive network assets that complement Vocus’ own fibre infrastructure as well as new products and capabilities that build on Vocus’ existing managed services, Cloud and security portfolio.

For New Zealand organisations in particular, the deal presents a significant development in supplier choice for trans-Tasman network and managed services.

Vocus now boasts a market capitalisation of $NZ1.5 billion.

“The combined infrastructure assets of the two businesses means no other Australian or New Zealand provider can match our trans-Tasman own fibre coverage and capability across both countries,” Vocus Communications NZ CEO, Maxine Elliot, said.

“For example, if you need to connect to offices in any Australian city, you can now jump on the Vocus’ network from any major exchange in New Zealand, and remain on our network right through to your destination.

“Ultimately, this provides a more direct, better managed and controlled service compared with using multiple carriers.”

Vocus owns and maintains more than4200km fibre throughout New Zealand and 6800km in Australia.

It also owns significant international capacity to USA, Hong Kong, Singapore, where it has several points of presence.

In addition to network services, Vocus owns and maintains 22 datacentres throughout the A/NZ region, looks after 3000 clients, employs 600 staff throughout Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Hamilton and Australia, and has more than 20 offices.
