Founded in 1988 as an authorized distributor of communications cabling products, our offering has evolved to support communications cabling needs from the workstation to the data center. Our product lines and inventory grew and matured just as our industry has and now our offering can support the most basic of needs such as a wall outlet to the most demanding supplies for data center server/san switching and power distribution.
We have retained our “entrepreneurial spirit”. We are driven to offer the best customer support with the very best products from our industry’s leaders because our customers are the most important element in our business. We do not accept “what was” for “what is”, as a company we are constantly changing. We are continually redefining how we can best serve our customers, from a customer service stand point to a more viable product offering.
Traditional wholesale distributors make products available from an A-Z List of manufacturers. At DC Connections, we depart from that tradition by focusing on a select group of complete systems manufacturers. The result is a competitively priced product offering with a highly refined and more reliable service offering behind the products you choose. We take a "help desk" approach to all customer inquiries, integrating project management assistance with your traditional supply chain support.
DC Connections assists in product selection from our network of world class manufacturers. We can provide a bill of materials to meet and exceed customer requirements while maintaining compliance with industry standards established by ETL, UL, and BICSI.
Construction and on going management of today's mission critical data centers requires a coordinated effort from all team members. DC Connections offers scalable products to help you meet both initial build and emergency scale-up time tables. Every effort is made to explore pre-fab solutions for both power and passive infrastructure as an alternative to traditional field termination.
To expedite deployment of your data center infrastructure, DC Connections offers kitting from the loading fiber optic patch and splice panels to rack and stack for network/server cabinets. Industry trends toward top of rack switching have simplified cabinet layout. Having cabinets arrive as "Cable Ready" can save time and money.
DC Connections offers staging for your project to deliver just in time. Please ask us how we can help.
