Networking Technologies started out in as a small data communications firm serving a variety of businesses and organizations in Northwestern Pennsylvania.  Jim Bahm and Ned Reade recognized the need for a local provider of advanced network consulting and technical support and, in 1998, they developed a business plan and opened the doors and the rest is history.

Over the next few years, Networking Technologies established a number of business partnerships with network technology leaders. These included companies such as Cisco Systems, Check Point Software, and Enterasys Networks. The firm invested significant resources to hire and train an experienced team of professionals, and worked diligently to become a Microsoft Certified Solutions Provider and a Platinum partner with Hewlett Packard Enterprises (HPE). These developments and relationships provided Networking Technologies with access to cutting-edge technology, producing the most efficient and well-engineered network solutions available for their clients.

In response to their business clients’ growing technology needs, the team significantly expanded the company’s focus, services and expertise. While Networking Technologies continues to provide high-end data communication consulting and technical support services, we now offer a variety of customizable programs to design, implement, and support almost any technology.

History and Timeline


“From the beginning, we have maintained our focus purely on network consulting and technical support, rather than just being another hardware or software vendor. This business model enables us to select and recommend the best products, configured in the best solution for our clients, because we are not pressured to meet sales quotas from any particular hardware or software supplier,” says co-founder Ned Reade.

Networking Technologies supports a diverse group of organizations and industries. For years, we have provided exceptional technical support for major hospitals, K-12 school districts, universities, municipal governments, and a variety of SMB to enterprise businesses.

In February 2016, Networking Technologies expanded and opened their third location in downtown Buffalo, NY.
