a full-service systems and network integration company that has been
operating since 1985. The company, which began as a satellite
television franchisee, has undergone striking evolution
and growth over time to become a provider of a wide variety
of telecommunications products and services.
ASCC has developed a reputation for excellence
in consulting, design, implementation, and maintenance across
the spectrum of telecommunications technologies. Our competence
is rooted in the intelligent building concept, embracing
structured cabling (twisted-pair, coaxial, and fiber-optic)
and wireless communications infrastructure, including inside
and outside plant design and construction. We are experts
in data, voice, video, audio, RF, and satellite communication
technologies. We provide telephone networks, local and wide
area data networks (LANs and WANs), RF, and satellite communications.
These networks are used for data, voice, videoconference,
nurse-call, media management, security and surveillance
applications, among others. Our data networking expertise
encompasses Internet, intranet, extranet, and private network
is a single-source company that has developed solutions
to complex communication problems for more than 4,000 customers
in several vertical markets. Historically, we have more numerous
customers in the education and health care markets, but
our portfolio includes very large and significant projects
in the retail, corporate, and government sectors as well.
Our business goal is to develop creative, cost-effective
solutions, from the design phase through installation, and
provide maintenance and support thereafter. We take a team
approach with our customers to help them identify possible
solutions, evaluate those for effectiveness and appropriateness
to the problem, and then implement the most favorable alternatives.
Our decision to represent multiple vendors increases our
alternatives for developing the best solutions for our customers.
Furthermore, ASCC management and staff
are committed to ongoing excellence in customer service.
It is important to note that ASCC is an
integrator, not a manufacturer. As a result, we do not engage
in R&D as a manufacturer would. Rather, we invest heavily
in the hiring, educating, and training of our staff, to
enable them to be as capable and current as possible. A
reflection of our commitment to this is that our engineers
and technicians (and managers) hold numerous certifications
from vendors and industry trade organizations, to assure
their preparedness for serving our customers.
Our customers range across industries, and geographical
scope. At the local level, we serve numerous school districts,
hospitals, and local governments. On a regional scale, familiar
names among our customers include UPMC, Adelphia, Sheetz,
and American Eagle Outfitters. In addition, our national
accounts include firms such as Lowes Home Centers, HealthSouth,
Dick's Sporting Goods, and FedEx Ground, Inc.
ASCC's menu of products and services includes:
information technology consulting; structured cable plant

and telephone switching and convergence; video conferencing
