TPx Communications sold off network assets to another California-based company, and Cisco announced the acquisition of a security provider last month.

Our latest M&A recap runs the gamut of technologies and business models. Two Florida-based master agents came together. Splunk acquired two more companies to bolster its observability practice. A contact center provider enhanced its offering. And Juniper Networks announced the acquisition of an SD-WAN provider.

We also recently covered a business workshop in which channel experts discussed the emotional weight of undergoing M&A. For example, MSP executive Juan Fernandez spoke about a past opportunity to sell his company.

“You don’t realize the emotional drain it’s going to take on not just you, but your family and everyone that’s invested in your success. You just can’t comprehend that,” said Fernandez, who serves as ImageNet‘s vice president of managed services. “So being mentally prepared is one of the biggest things that I advise people when they’re looking to sell, or are thinking about it or asking how I did it or they’re looking to buy a company.”

Scroll through the images below to see the channel-impacting consolidation from the last month.
