Microsoft goes to Enfield

Microsoft have announced they have signed an agreement to acquire Metaswitch Networks, who are a leading virtual network software, data and comms company.

This follows the recent acquisition of Affirmed Networks by Microsoft last month. Microsoft has stated it is looking to leverage the two organizations, extending the Azure platform.

Metaswitch has been an exciting and growing business over the years and works with over 1,000 communications service providers and network equipment providers across the globe. The acquisition has come at a crucial time as the industry transitions to 5G networks.

The acquisition of Metaswitch by Microsoft is a huge boost to the Enfield economy – and very much hope to see increased jobs and investment as a result. This news is so important as we move through the Covid19 challenge.

Microsoft coming to Enfield will put our community on the global tech / r&d map as a place to invest and grow. We offer great transport links both into London on the underground and the M25 on our doorstep. Enfield has demonstrated through companies like Metaswitch that we can innovate and have the talent to back this up.

Let this be the signal that now is a great time to invest in Enfield!
