About Us | BTI Communications Group

Since 1985, BTI Communications Group has provided innovative products and customized solutions for telecommunications and data networking.

Our Award-Winning Track Record Providing Physical and Cyber Security Services

Over the years, BTI has been a pioneer in converging voice and data networks and has won accolades from partners and clients. For example, before they were AT&T, SBC Advanced Data turned to BTI for their first GigaMan gigabit ethernet circuit for Chicago-based Options Clearing Corporation. Our implementation of this ethernet circuit resulted in a major leap forward for both our vendor partner and our client.

After this leap forward, we’ve continued to showcase our excellence by providing low-cost, high-value voice, data, and managed IT communication solutions. BTI has been awarded the coveted Partners in Excellence Award as well as Platinum Level, Elite, and Champion Partner Awards from our many vendors and partners, year after year.

We continue to win these awards due to our commitment to adding value by providing low-cost, effectively managed voice and data communications solutions. When you turn to us for our solutions, we start with an efficiently designed network infrastructure. Next, we ensure our customers receive a high return on investment by doing every job right from the start. We also offer best-of-breed products and services tailored to our clients’ specific needs.

BTI’s Purpose and Approach

BTI's purpose is to help companies increase efficiency, streamline operations, and improve sales using advanced communication technology. Voice and data communication have converged in the corporate data network. With an array of specialists and products promising various solutions, customers are challenged with where to start and how to implement these solutions at the lowest cost and highest benefit to their organization.

In the past, the standard practice has been to procure items from various vendors and piece them together. Our customers realize that for them, the cost and complexity of multiple vendors, technologies, and management interfaces outweigh the apparent savings of this approach.

As an alternative to this standard approach, BTI gives our customers solutions that provide better user satisfaction and productivity, with less headcount dedicated to supporting the solution than any other vendor. As more technology merges into the network, BTI ensures our customers can manage it all with one unified communication solution. For example, our solutions give our customers easy management over building automation, security, quality control, training, meetings, conferences, and phone calls.


Due to our forward-thinking approach, BTI is committed to continuing to lead the evolution of network-centric technology. We’re also dedicated to creating smart networks that enable businesses to communicate from anywhere, utilizing whatever devices they need.

Our Growth Strategy

BTI Communications Group is continuing to grow and expand in its target markets. As we grow, we’re focused on identifying additional viable markets and emerging technologies in the telecommunications industry. With the methodology of understanding our clients' needs and striving to provide them with the most efficient technologies available, BTI is set to become the global standard of excellence in principles, practices, and products.
