We give manufacturers the ability to effectively perform their business functions with guaranteed high speeds and exceptional network performance.

The Challenge

Recent technological developments in the manufacturing industry have helped some of Pittsburgh’s largest and most well known manufacturing companies improve their processes. However, these technological developments — like 3D additive printing, RFID technology, CAD files and real-time communication with automated machinery — all require reliable network connections to function properly.

After incorporating these new technologies into their businesses, some of the area’s largest manufacturing companies found their operations grinding to a halt when they lost network connectivity. The old copper wire infrastructure they relied on for incoming revenue, communication and actual manufacturing processes was not reliable enough to support these essential business functions.

The DQE Solution

DQE Communications customized a dark fiber network giving these manufacturers the ability to effectively perform their business functions with cutting edge technology at guaranteed high speeds and exceptional network performance.

DQE Communications consulted each of these leading manufacturers to develop custom, reliable solutions for their connectivity challenges.

For example, a local polymer development company and a local steel producer received miles of new dark fiber to keep their mission-critical operations up and running. With reliable new fiber networks, both of these companies now enjoy the following:

  • Real-Time Backup Capabilities
  • Data Center Connectivity
  • Disaster Recovery
  • Increased Bandwidth
  • Proactive Protection
  • Quick Traffic Recovery
  • Secure Cloud-Based Applications

Most importantly, they have peace of mind that their essential business functions now operate on a reliable network that won’t buckle under the pressure of new manufacturing technology.
