The History of Dedicated Networks.
Dedicated Networks was born in 2005 through the entrepreneurship of Jerry and Paul Cullen, a father-son duo working from their garage. By focusing on delighting customers and investing in its employees, the company grew quickly. The rapid growth led to multiple facility expansions resulting in the 47,000 square ft operations center that Dedicated Networks occupies to this day. By mid-2016, the business grew to more than 100 employees. At this time, the owners were ready to continue to build and create a more scalable organization. They began ramping up to continue growth and to compete in the larger marketplace.
Dedicated Networks is now one of the largest players specializing in core network routing and switching products. We buy and sell globally, shipping products to over 60 different countries. We continue in the tradition of our founders with an unwavering commitment to our customer’s success.
