To promote STEM Week in Pittsburgh, DQE’s President & CEO Jim Morozzi was interviewed on KDKA’s Showcase Pittsburgh discussing the importance of STEM, and how DQE strives to provide innovative data solutions that foster technology growth in Pittsburgh.
A group of DQE Communications employees partnered with two local organizations to complete various tasks for a Volunteer Day on August 9th.
One group of volunteers visited ASSET STEM to disassemble and organize approximately 300 STEM Kits for students of the school. This organization provides access to schools and education organizations to provide proven and cost-effective tools, resources and strategies to advance teaching and learning for effective inquiry-based teaching and learning.
Another group of volunteers visited the Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh to clean and organize their facility for a family-friendly carnival. This organization provides safety, shelter, support and guidance to all victims of domestic violence.

DQE associates are already looking forward to the next volunteer day, tentatively scheduled for November.
Over one hundred customers attended the 5th Annual DQE Customer Appreciation Golf Outing at Sewickley Heights Golf Club on June 11th, 2018. Customers began to arrive around 10:30AM, receiving a DQE Communications 3-in-1 Golf Ball Marker/Clip/Bottle Opener combo at registration, before heading to the patio for a complimentary cookout luncheon. A noon shotgun start kicked off this scramble style competition.
After a few hours on the course, customers were treated to cocktail hour, followed by a delicious dinner and award ceremony, with recognition given on six contest holes, the best scoring team, and those who put forth their best effort. Thanks to our partnerships and donations, lucky raffle winners walked away with great prizes including top-of-the-line golf supplies, autographed Penguins, Steelers + Pirates memorabilia, and more!
For the 5th year in a row, DQE hosted a successful outing as a fun way to show our customers’ our appreciation for their continued business.

New product enables businesses to connect privately and securely to cloud service providers
PITTSBURGH – DQE Communications, a major provider of data networking services for businesses in southwestern Pennsylvania, has launched Cloud Solution, a new product that allows companies to connect directly to top-tier cloud service providers.
DQE’s Cloud Solution gives businesses a private connection to service providers like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure/Office 365, bypassing the public internet. Any enterprise-type company could benefit from this private connection, which improves security and performance.
“Cloud Solution is for business and government organizations that want dedicated and private connections to their cloud provider for a quicker, secure and more consistent network experience than typical internet connections. In fact, Cloud Solution is a logical and reliable choice when organizations need a diverse connection to their cloud provider,” said Ross Henzel, director of business development for DQE Communications.
