Nuvias UC’s Heritage

Nuvias UC didn’t begin as a UC distributor….. the company began as a systems integrator, called Siphon Networks.

The founders identified that numerous UC cloud providers needed help with integration. Siphon Networks was therefore established in 2009 to build platforms for those who wanted to excel in the cloud.

The business then saw an opportunity to move into distribution while maintaining its engineering background and systems integration services.

Industry leading UC vendors seeking a distribution partner, soon identified the extra value and services that the business was able to offer customers and, over the years, Nuvias UC has continued to add UC-focused on-premise and cloud vendors to its portfolio.

Reflecting the growing potential of the company, Siphon Networks was bought by Rigby Private Equity in 2016 and, from there, the company evolved into Nuvias UC. Although the owners changed, the company’s expertise in engineering, systems integration and distribution continued to grow, resulting in recognition via various industry awards including the prestigious Deloitte’s UK Technology Fast 50 and EMEA Technology Fast 500, as well as numerous vendor awards.

Since the acquisition, Nuvias UC has attracted more top class vendors, and continues to build upon its strengths.
