“I’m confident that the synergies we’ve already realized with BullsEye will ensure the continued success of our employees and clients. We are thrilled to become part of such a dynamic team. I look forward to offering additional exemplary solutions to our clients,” Azelby said.

Background

Bandwave maintains wholesale relationships with various telcos, cable companies and wireless providers. It can provide last-mile connectivity anywhere in North America, according to Azelby. Its target customers range from 25 to 1,000 locations.

“If they have a lot of brick and mortar spread out across the country, then Bandwave could be the solution,” Azelby told Channel Partners in 2018. “Because we can bring in all this connectivity for them with one contract, one bill and one support.”

Bandwave operates out of Burllington, New Jersey, while BullsEye calls Southfield, Michigan, home.

BullsEye expanded its channel strategy in 2020, signing a new master agent partner and tapping a new vice president of channel sales. The CLEC sells through the agent channel.

Bandwave landed on the Inc. 5000 for the sixth consecutive year in 2020. The company cited 120% three-year growth.
