Vodafone Global Enterprise Limited is a multinational company which provides telecommunications and information technology services to large corporations, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Vodafone Group Plc.[2] It was established in April 2007.[3]

History

Vodafone Global Enterprise (VGE) was established in April 2007 by Vodafone,[1] with the strategic ambition to become a global player in managed communications services for multinational and local enterprises.

On 1 December 2011, it acquired the Reading-based Bluefish Communications Ltd - an ICT consultancy company.[4] The acquired operations will form the nucleus of a new Unified Communications and Collaboration practice within VGE,[5] which will focus on implementing strategies and solutions in cloud computing, and strengthen its professional services offering.[6]

On 23 April 2012, Vodafone announced an agreement to acquire Cable & Wireless Worldwide for £1.04 billion,[7][8] and on 18 June 2012, Cable & Wireless shareholders voted in favour of the Vodafone offer[9], exceeding the 75% of shares necessary for the deal to go ahead[10]. The acquisition will give Vodafone access to CWW's fibre network for businesses,[11] enabling it to take unified communications solutions to large enterprises in UK and globally; and expand its enterprise integration service offerings in emerging markets.[12][13]
