Leeds based telecoms pioneers snapped up by US firm

Tango Networks announced they have acquired Simetric Telecom, a Yorkshire based provider of innovative mobile services and telecommunications solutions.

Simetric, founded in 2009 by Gavin Sweet and John Murray, operate telecoms systems that afford organisations the same call handling, call recording and switchboard services on their employee’s mobile phones as they would on their desktop handsets. The beauty of Simetric’s system is that it works via a SIM card, which will work in any unlocked phone that supports them.

The acquisition, by Texas based Tango Networks, creates a portfolio of global mobile communications solutions, uniquely focused on the needs of today’s mobile workforce.

Together the companies will supply large businesses, hosted communications providers and telecom resellers with a comprehensive portfolio of communications services that revolutionise enterprise mobility.

"Joining forces with Tango Networks will raise our service offerings and market reach to an entirely new level"
Gavin Sweet



“Joining forces with Tango Networks will raise our service offerings and market reach to an entirely new level,” said Gavin Sweet, Managing Director of Simetric. “We have always delivered innovative services that create a truly unified telecommunications experience for our customers. Now with Tango Networks we are positioned in the vanguard of the new enterprise mobility revolution.”

“The Simetric and Tango Networks combination creates an unmatched portfolio of solutions for enterprise mobile communications,” said Doug Bartek, CEO of Tango Networks. “We’re committed to providing Simetric’s community of partners and resellers with the same reliable, innovative services and high level of support that they have received from Simetric over the years.”

The combined offerings will be the industry’s first to seamlessly integrate “mobile native” voice, text and data communications with enterprise telephony and applications. That innovation will give enterprise customers a ubiquitous, global communications fabric, covering all employees in any location.

Simetric is now operating as a subsidiary of Tango Networks. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
