The holiday season brings about a bit of a slowdown in M&A activity, but not much. Those we highlight for November (see slideshow above) demonstrate strong activity in the channel.

For example, take Bluewave Technology Group. The Columbia Capital-backed firm acquired two companies in one month (and yet another on Wednesday). Although Bluewave didn’t say how much it’s paying for either deal, the company did receive a $75 million growth investment from Columbia to fuel these and other acquisitions this year.

When it comes to Broadcom buying VMware, the companies have dominated the tech news cycle these last few months. Channel Futures editor Kelly Teal keeps our readers up to date on the latest activity regarding that deal. This includes whether European regulators will approve the acquisition. Read more about that in our list.

Furthermore, Lumen shelled out $1.8 billion for a technology services firm, allowing the company to expand critical fiber network connectivity. How does this impact Lumen in the long term? We have some reporting on that as well.

In addition, if you didn’t catch our previous M&A gallery, you can find it here.
