Xtel Acquires Maryland-based CLEC Global Telecom

Xtel Communications, a telecommunications and cybersecurity specialist, has expanded its serviceable footprint with the acquisition of Global Telecom (GTB), a competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) and one of Maryland’s first telecom providers. With the acquisition, Xtel enables businesses across this key market with secure, smart telecommunications and cloud solutions that are agile and adaptable to today’s evolving workforce and landscape.

Founded in 1992, GTB was a pioneer in implementing voice-over IP (VoIP) technology and is a leading provider of VoIP and unified communications as a service (UCaaS) to large health care providers, law firms and other verticals throughout the Baltimore, District of Columbia and Virginia region. The company has been endorsed as a “Carrier of Choice” by many business associations.

“GTB’s long-standing history across the region as a telecom innovator with a profound focus on our customer-first approach will only continue to prosper under the Xtel brand,” said Dror Mei-Tal, president and CEO of GTB. “This acquisition allows GTB to expand its cutting-edge services and provide a more advanced level of security offerings which are critical in today’s business environment.”

The addition of GTB strengthens Xtel’s client base encompassing health care, legal, government and educational organizations. Xtel’s evolving portfolio of advanced telecom, cloud and cybersecurity services includes:

  • UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service)
  • Wireless Internet 5G/LTE
  • DIA (Dedicated Internet Access)
  • DDoS mitigation
  • SOCaaS (Security Operations Center as a Service)

At the forefront of telecommunications for almost three decades, Xtel is one of the oldest and most established privately held CLECs in the country. The company continuously reinvests in its network and customer support infrastructure, recently adding a third data center in the New York City market. Its fiber-optic network is geo-redundant and engineered to be resilient and scalable, with ample capacity to accommodate growth and sudden spikes in customer utilization. Xtel’s network and data centers are certified annually to meet stringent compliance requirements.

“This acquisition marks a milestone in Xtel’s history as we enter into the Baltimore market and continue to expand our presence to enable businesses of all sizes with the solutions and expertise needed to meet today’s demands,” said Brian Flynn, president of Xtel. “We look forward to delivering the excellent service GTB customers are accustomed to and developing long-term partnerships across the region.”
