Maintenance Services

For over thirty years KCI, Inc. has supplied and supported switching and connectivity products to America’s largest corporations and government agencies. Over the years platforms and manufacturers have changed but the basic need to access and switch large volumes of data has grown exponentially. Across the span of three decades, from Bus & Tag to ESCON to FICON Channel, KCI, Inc. has developed unique and exceptional technical competencies in SAN architecture, switching, storage, networking, and connectivity.

KCI, Inc.’s Customer Service Engineers are manufacturer trained and offer the experience necessary to design, plan, implement, install and maintain Enterprise networks in mission critical environments. Coupled with the single largest independent source of spare parts in the industry, we provide the hardware and the necessary know-how for any maintenance contingency.

Over the years KCI, Inc. has been selected by many Fortune 500 companies as their vendor of choice. We have also supported equipment in Brazil, England, Australia, Singapore, Denmark, Japan, China, Israel, and Saudi Arabia. And, in March 2012, we were awarded the Verizon 2011 Supplier Recognition Award for Outstanding Performance in the IT Services Category at the nation’s largest Telco.
