TelePacific Communications Acquires Orange County Internet Xchange

Orange County Internet Xchange, a dedicated provider of carrier class colocation services. OCiX operates a 10,000 square-foot SAS (News - Alert) 70 Type II certified facility located in Santa Ana, California, was recently acquired by TelePacific Communications, a company based out of California and Nevada.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, TelePacific Communications is the leading competitive carrier in its footprint, offering host of IP, voice, data and Internet services, as well as business continuity, security and managed solutions.

The latest acquisition builds the company’s reputation and also supports its strategic initiative to continue delivering carrier grade infrastructure to the SMB market, and further enhances their suite of colocation and business continuity services.

The company also has other carrier class colocation facilities located in San Jose, San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. This is said to be TelePacific's second acquisition of a SAS 70 certified data center. In November 2010, TelePacific acquired a data center in Sacramento, California through a transaction with 01 Communications.

"Network reliability and security remain paramount concerns to our customers," said Dick Jalkut, President and CEO of TelePacific. "The legacy OCiX data center allows us to deliver the redundant facilities that are in high demand by banks, hospitals and other businesses in highly regulated industries."

The company has also announced its plans to expand the OCiX facility to 18,000 square feet soon that will offer current customers with more private meeting space and storage for their gear.

This acquisition will also help OCiX customers to consolidate their voice and data services with one provider and access TelePacific's extensive portfolio of enhanced telecommunications services including high bandwidth Ethernet access, wireless connectivity, mobile solutions and equipment leasing.

TelePacific’s acquisition is bringing in no harm to OCiX employees, as they are fortunate to have them continue to support legacy customers for a seamless transition. TelePacific is a privately-held company and the financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
