GeoLinks has acquired TPx network assets, expanding its network in key regions, particularly the Bay Area and Las Vegas.

The TPx network assets include fixed wireless infrastructure and spectrum licenses. GeoLinks and its partners will leverage its ClearFiber fixed wireless technology. They will provision enterprise-grade internet for businesses and anchor institutions across the fastest growing fixed wireless network in the western United States.

Based in Southern California, GeoLinks is a telecommunications company and CLEC public utility.

While GeoLinks will fold the assets into its existing network, all TPx customers will remain under TPx management and will be otherwise unaffected by the agreement.

“GeoLinks has the largest coverage area of any single provider in California,” he said. “The acquisition further densifies and expands our coverage in the Greater Los Angeles market, as well as Orange County, San Bernardino, the San Fernando Valley, Santa Barbara, the Bay Area, Silicon Valley, Santa Cruz and Las Vegas. With denser coverage throughout California and beyond, partners can come to us for just about any opportunity in the state. Additionally, through the acquisition of 5G spectrum licenses, we’ll be able to deliver even higher capacity circuits in the same seven-to-10-day time frame that our partners have come to know and love us for.”

GeoLinks will be able to deliver on even more multisite opportunities, Deneef said. That’s includes more hard-to-reach areas. And it gives partners the ability to bring the solution under one provider.

“We also can provide the bandwidth to run every other type of software application on top of circuits – SD-WAN, UCaaS – and whatever else is needed, in the same rapid time frame,” he said.

TPx’s Strategy

“We’re focused on being the nation’s premier MSP by designing, delivering and managing IT solutions, connectivity and communications solutions,” he said. “Providing and managing connectivity is still core to our strategy. That has not changed.”

However, as an MSP, owning the access infrastructure isn’t necessary for TPx’s goals, particularly with the availability of SD-WAN based services, Zahn said.

“What is important is having the right mix of partners to enable TPx to deliver connectivity solutions,” he said. “GeoLinks already has been a great partner, and we expect this to enhance our relationship.”

Already named an Inc. 5000 fastest growing company four years in a row, the acquisition further positions GeoLinks to continue on its accelerated growth path.
