BUFFALO – I-Evolve Technology Services today announced its most recent acquisition of Rochester-based Layer 8 Communications. Founded in 2006, Layer 8 offers Communications Consulting, Carrier Resale and Hosted VoIP to companies in Western New York. The acquisition adds to I-Evolve’s rapidly growing footprint in the WNY market.

“Like our other transactions, the acquisition of Layer 8 Communications allows I-Evolve to leverage the technology investment in our multiple carrier grade data centers located in Amherst and Buffalo,” said Kevin Kelly, President of I-Evolve. “The Layer 8 Communications transaction also complements and enhances our recent acquisition of Rochester-based E3 Technologies, which will most certainly increase the value and service quality we provide to our technology partners and clients” said Kelly.

David Meller, Chief Technology Officer of I-Evolve expects the transition to be seamless to the customers. “Our investment in technical talent, state of the art technologies and redundant high speed data connectivity gives us the tools and resources we need to ensure that the process will go smoothly,” said Meller.
