Telecom research firm New Paradigm Resources Group Inc. (NPRG) has merged with Connecticut Research Inc., a consulting group that serves the telecommunications, electronics, electric utilities and information services sectors.
The combination better positions NPRG to help clients in the IP telecom and information services arenas. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
NPRG will keep its name and remain headquartered in Chicago, with offices in Glastonbury, Conn., and Houston. Richard G. Tomlinson, founder and CEO of Connecticut Research, has joined NPRG as executive vice president. He will focus on strategy development, business analysis and technology assessment.
The next growth driver of the competitive telecom industry will be in emerging technologies that not only displace legacy systems and disrupt the status quo but create an entirely new set of business protocols, said NPRG President Terrence Barnich. As they contend with change at an unprecedented pace, carriers, vendors, investors and legal advisors need an expert consulting service that understands the technology and its implications, sees big picture trends, and can anticipate future advances to help service providers stay ahead of the curve. By expanding NPRGs horizons through this merger, we have created a single-source repository of knowledge and expertise that will serve the full span of the communications industry, now and for the next generation.
