PacketFabric and Unitas Global Merge to Move NaaS Forward

January 20, 2023

NaaS (Network as a Service) provider PacketFabric announced a merger with Unitas Global, an enterprise network service provider, subject to regulatory approval. The merger was made possible thanks to customer and market feedback for a strong solution that will finally move business internet architecture forward into one that is software-defined and fully programmable. The hope is that it will overcome the challenges today’s enterprise customers face like high price, poor performance and limited flexibility.

In response to this need, the merging of both companies led by investor Digital Alpha Advisors will offer customers real-time, on-demand control “from The Edge to Everywhere.”

"The combination of Unitas Global's automated design and pricing platform and its global access and Internet network covering over 50 million locations in 173 countries, creates a compelling offering to enable enterprise network transformation," said Unitas Global CEO Patrick Shutt. "This merger extends the edge of network automation and flexibility out to the enterprise, creating an unmatched Edge to Everywhere offering for our customers and partners globally."

PacketFabric helps businesses deliver optimal digital transformations by building new secure, private network fabrics to connect their core sites, cloud assets and manage shifts in data gravity with their unique fabric integrated storage. Using PacketFabric Converge, it is possible to have on-demand connectivity across colocation facilities, cloud providers, and private network interconnection across the globe.

Unitas Global offers end-to-end network design, pricing, ordering and visibility across more than one thousand first/middle/last mile networks via over 50 million fiber lit buildings.

What’s most beneficial about this move into the future of business internet is that enterprises and partners can now design and control their communication infrastructure, without having to carry the burden of owning and operating any part of their network.

"Our platforms enable a fundamental shift in the way to architect and operationalize a modern business. We enable a reimagination of simplified operations with real-time, on-demand automation, self-service, complete telemetry and flexible consumption, applied to every aspect of business connectivity. We do this by fulfilling the promise of software-defined-networking and AIOps via our cloud native platforms. Not one other NaaS offer enables Edge to Everywhere through their platform, we believe this makes us the one true NaaS," said PacketFabric CEO Dave Ward.
