Quality over quantity.

The past two months weren’t quite as active on the M&A front as pertaining to the channel, but our roundup of newly announced purchases and updates features some big names.

Mitel surprised the channel with the announcement it’s going private. The news came just a few months after closing its purchase of rival ShoreTel.

Fusion made a big statement with the acquisition of MegaPath just days after closing its purchase of Birch Communications. Keep an eye on these guys.

Sungard Availability Services sold off a key business unit. And a potential merger between Sprint and T-Mobile could soon have a major impact on the former’s burgeoning channel program.

Those are just a handful of the noteworthy mergers and acquisitions from April and May that are highlighted in our roundup below. Scroll through to catch up on who’s buying whom — and why. All have channel implications.
