CEC Expands IT Solution Portfolio

Hiawatha, IA (Oct. 26, 2016) – CEC, a nationally recognized systems and technology integrator based in Hiawatha, IA, continues to focus on expanding its IT presence by building the company’s IT portfolio to include solutions from Enseva, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), and Ruckus Wireless.  

CEC’s partnerships with HPE and Ruckus Wireless offer customers a wider range of storage and wireless solutions.  Ruckus Wireless enhances the outdoor wireless solutions available and provides CEC the ability to provide non-controller-based wireless access points.

The partnership with Enseva adds a new service to CEC’s growing IT portfolio; Enseva and CEC can now provide cloud and co-location service expertise, giving customers the opportunity to simplify IT by removing the burden of infrastructure maintenance and management.

“We are always looking for the best partners to ensure that we meet the changing technology needs of our customers,” says Jim Anderson, director, IT services. “The addition of these three partners gives us even more depth in all the IT disciplines we offer.”

What Our Customers Are Saying

When CEC installed the nurse call system, they worked side by side with us so they knew which rooms they could get into. They were very good about wearing necessary protective gear. There was great communication throughout the entire process; they let us know what was happening each step of the way.
