Who We Are & What We Do

About Us

Since 1985, BTI Communications Group has provided innovative products and customized solutions for telecommunications and data networking. Our goal is to provide our clients with easy access to information and communication.

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, BTI implemented SBC Advanced Data's first gigaman gigabit ethernet circuit for Chicago-based Options Clearing Corporation. This resulted in a major leap forward for both our vendor partner and our client. BTI Communications Group 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.

BTI is committed to adding value by providing low cost, effectively managed, voice and data communications solutions. This starts with an efficiently designed network infrastructure. We ensure our customers' return on investment by doing every job right from the start and providing best of breed products and services tailored to the client's specific needs.

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. 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 outweighs the apparent savings of this approach.


By using BTI, our customers can achieve better user satisfaction and productivity, with less headcount dedicated to supporting the solution than any other vendor. More technology is merging into the network. Building automation, security, quality control, training, meetings, conferences, and phone calls are managed with ease on a BTI unified communication solution. BTI is committed to continuing to lead the evolution of network-centric technology and creating smart intelligent networks that enable businesses to communicate from anywhere utilizing whatever devices they need.
