Kiwi MSP expands global portfolio with double Wellington ISP acquisition

"This broadens our product suite to include VOIP and hosting services."

New Zealand technology and managed services provider Liverton Technology Group has acquired the business and assets of Knossos Networks Limited and sister company On Networks, as it continues its expansion at home and overseas.

Operating as managed network, ISP and VOIP providers specialising in the hotel, hospitality and SME vertical, terms of the deal will see Liverton leverage the lower North Island focus of both Knossos and On Networks, including its customer base.

“This is Liverton’s third acquisition, and expands and complements our existing ISP and managed network business, which provides ISP and managed network services in New Zealand, Australia, and USA,” says Justin De Lille, CEO, Liverton.

“Furthermore, this broadens our product suite to include VOIP and hosting services, and provides a richer product experience and support base for all existing Knossos and OnNetwork customers.”

As part of the purchase, De Lille says Knossos and OnNetworks Director Don Stokes will be joining Liverton as Network Manager, deepening Liverton’s technical expertise.

“Don’s strength and technical ability are well recognised in New Zealand, having over 30 years’ experience in the ICT space and being one of the original architects of the internet in New Zealand in the early 90’s,” De Lille explains.

Going forward, De Lille says all existing Knossos and On Networks customers will continue to be supported by their existing account manager and will transition across over the next few months.

In addition, Liverton has also recently appointed former Deloitte partner, Ian Perry, as General Manager of Services and Solutions, to drive its public sector business in New Zealand and Australia.

Operating as a New Zealand headquartered technology provider, Liverton specialises in security software, ISP and networking services, 4G Data and Telecoms and risk based consultancy, with overseas offices in Australia, Hong Kong and USA.
