Commercis Acquires Independent Teleport Operator Onlime

Alan Afrasiab, Chairman

Data Grid Network GmbH, a subsidiary of Commercis Plc, has today announced the acquisition of a majority shareholding in the independent teleport operator Onlime GmbH and its TechnoPark facility near Hannover in Germany. Onlime GmbH provides critical connectivity for national and international clients with access to 200+ geostationary satellites giving worldwide coverage. Access to these satellites is crucial to support enterprise, government, military, oil & gas, mining, banking, NGO and many other client’s groups. 

The freehold facility near Hannover, built by Deutsche Telekom in 1987, is one of the largest in Europe and is extensively connected to the world's fibre networks. With almost 3,000 sqm of buildings, including a substantial Data Centre, Network Operations Centre, and Technical Labs, the TechnoPark will provide Commercis Communications with a secure and central hub enabling further global expansions. 

Commercis, a teleport operator since 2009 and the first certified by the World Teleport Association (WTA) in 2019, has been exploring opportunities for larger and robust premises to continue its ambitious development objectives. Investing in Onlime's business, facilities, and it’s existing clients gives Commercis an edge in its offering. 

Chairman of Commercis Plc, Alan Afrasiab, stated: "the acquisition of Onlime GmbH and its facility has come at precisely the right time. With the staff of two teleports coming together, we will have more resources to ensure we can deliver on our plans for continued growth in both GEO and LEO sectors. The larger premises will help facilitate plans for a Green Data Centre, which we will be keen to begin development on soon". 

Chief Executive Officer of Onlime GmbH, Paul Ziegler, added: " The team at the Onlime teleport is delighted to become part of the Commercis Group of companies, organisations that share our vision and values. Combining our award-winning Teleport and Data Centre with Commercis' leading services and solutions means clients will benefit from greater international connectivity, support and a global presence with Commercis' offices worldwide".
