KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 3): Maxis Bhd has expanded its voice and unified communications (UC) solutions capabilities with the acqui-hire of Malaysian-based UC and voice cloud solutions company Audeonet (M) Sdn Bhd.

The communications service provider said the expanded portfolio is part of its ongoing commitment to build talent capacity and capabilities in sophisticated solutions for its enterprise segment, driven by the increasing need for greater collaboration in business in the new normal.

“This integration of Audeonet into Maxis follows the successful acqui-hire of Infrastructure Consulting and Managed Services, a Microsoft Gold Partner and cloud solutions company earlier this year,” it said in a statement today.

It said the expansion of Maxis’ UC and voice capabilities would provide its enterprise customers with access to a wider suite of industry leading product offerings, enhancing their digital transformation for a productive working environment, both on-premise and remotely, at cost-efficient prices.

“This acqui-hire will make Maxis Business the exclusive distributor of Deltapath in Malaysia. Deltapath is a global provider of enhanced Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony system solutions,” it said.

Additionally, it said Maxis Business would be a Gold Reseller of Lifesize, offering cloud-based 4K video conferencing solutions.

It said the new solutions would be integrated into Maxis Business’ current offerings and delivered over Malaysia’s leading converged 4G mobile and fixed network to deliver innovative technologies, whilst providing a worry-free network experience.

“As part of the agreement between Maxis and Audeonet, the transaction value of the acqui-hire is not disclosed,” it said.

Chief enterprise business officer Paul McManus said Audeonet’s best-in-class technical experts and key partnerships with voice on-premise and cloud telephony providers is paramount to strengthen Maxis’ services and offerings for enterprise customers.

“This is aligned with our wider convergence strategy and commitment to bring the best technologies, to enable businesses and the nation to always be ahead in a changing world,” he added.

Audeonet was established in 2002, with a highly skilled team of certified IT professionals supporting the end-to-end deployment of their solutions including installation, technical support, cabling works, training or extended maintenance services.
