ClearlyIP, a global provider of cloud and VoIP business telephony solutions, has acquired all the telecom assets of the Vancouver-based Telrad Technology Group Ltd, a privately-held company that has been serving the telecom needs of small and medium-sized businesses across Canada and the United States for more than 40 years. This acquisition will enable ClearlyIP to expand its cloud services business, and focus its resources on developing innovative solutions backed with best-in-class customer service.


Headquartered in Appleton, Wisconsin (US), ClearlyIP said that they will continue to support and maintain Telrad’s cloud and voice business solutions. Furthermore, ClearlyIP is also acquiring the entire Telrad team, adding an office in Vancouver, British Columbia, to ensure a seamless transition for customers and distribution partners. According to Tony Lewis, CEO of ClearlyIP, the company is implementing its strategy to increase organic growth through targeted acquisitions that will further expand the scale and resources required by ClearlyIP to serve its growing customer base.


Tony Lewis stated, “The acquisition of Telrad follows the prior acquisitions of Cyclix Networks and Inc in late 2019. Collectively, these transactions have extended and strengthened our in-market presence across North America and provided additional technical and customer-facing resources that have allowed us to continue to see growth and momentum despite the industry impacts due to the current global pandemic.”


Breanna Fernie, President and Chief Executive Officer of Telrad, will be joining the ClearlyIP executive team as Chief Marketing Officer. She said, “As we look toward the future of business communications, we believe that ClearlyIP’s larger scale and unique combination of technological expertise and customer focus make them the best possible way to provide advanced telecommunications service to our customers while maintaining the personal touch that our customers value.  We are excited that all of our employees will be part of the combined Company and will carry-on our rich tradition of being a customer-focused organization.”


ClearlyIP offers premium telecommunications services, applications and customer premise hardware to businesses, ITSP’s, OEM’s and other communications providers all over the world. The company’s products include branded IP phones, VoIP appliances, a set of advanced cloud services, and a feature-rich SIP trunking platform.
