Solutions and services provider, Dimension Data today announced it has acquired 100% of privately owned cloud video managed services business, Teliris for an undisclosed sum.

The acquisition is said to be in line with Dimension Data's aggressive growth plans, and provides the group with immediate scale in the cloud and managed video space.

Steve Nola, group executive of Dimension Data's ITaaS service unit said, "The acquisition of Teliris is an investment in skills and expertise, and gives Dimension Data expanded scale to support the growth in our Managed Services for Visual Communications business. 

"Teliris' cloud capabilities complement Dimension Data's existing portfolio of both cloud services and managed services offerings. This, combined with the excellent experience and skillset of the Teliris operational staff in the US and UK enables Dimension Data to accelerate the development of a true Video Conferencing-as-a-Service (VCaaS) offering to the market."

The acquisition of Teleris, which has offices in London, Connecticut and New York is expected to expand Dimension Data's Managed Services for Visual Communications (MSVC) operations. 

According to Dimension Data, Teleris is one of the first industry pioneers to deliver cloud-based managed telepresence services and provides immersive telepresence and videoconferencing services via its own proprietary platform, Lentaris.

Teliris is said to retain its brand for the foreseeable future, and will continue to offer the services that it does today, and support its current managed services clients using its own proprietary technologies and cloud platform.
