Meriplex Acquires Dallas-Based Telecommunications Provider


Meriplex Communications, a managed IT and SD-WAN solutions provider specializing in intelligent networks, cybersecurity, cloud communications, and managed services, announces its acquisition of Dallas-based telecommunications company, Vergent Communications on May 1, 2020.

Vergent Communications, originally founded in 1992 as Fluent Systems, a top-ten provider of system integration services, expanded its portfolio into delivering ISP services as the Internet continued to expand in the late 1990s. In 2004, Fluent Systems spun off its telecommunications division to become Vergent Communications. Vergent offers leading voice and data communications to businesses across the United States.

“Vergent Communications provides Meriplex with an immediate and meaningful footprint in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area,” says David Henley, CEO of Meriplex. “We look forward to continuing Vergent’s successful approach to providing personalized customer service while adding tremendous value via advanced cybersecurity integrations and securely managed IT solutions.”

Will Gibson, a former CEO of Vergent Communications, commented, “This acquisition provides an opportunity for Vergent Communications customers to benefit from more comprehensive and robust solutions from the Meriplex portfolio with the ability to gain access into more resources from a larger organization.”
