O’Connell Electric’s Communications Division got its start in the early 1990’s as we realized our customers had increasing needs for specialized services in information technology. As new technologies emerged we grew our capability by acquiring contracts of increasing size and complexity to design, install, test, and commission state of the art data communications systems.

By 1991, we were installing some of the first TIA/EIA 568, Ethernet, and fiber optic cable-to-the-desk installations in New York State. In 1992 we tackled a massive LAN project for Eastman Kodak that included data, voice, and fiber optics and required of over 140,000 feet of LAN cable with 10,000 terminations. In the mid ’90s we transitioned the 26-story Chase Tower in Rochester, New York from Token Ring LAN to Ethernet technology and installed a state of the art fiber optic backbone. We rounded out the ’90s installing voice, data, nurse call, paging, and video systems at several large medical facilities that included Systimax certified installations and 500,000 feet of Category 5E cabling.

Today, we continue to advance our expertise, develop our personnel, and expand our equipment resources through work with commercial, educational, government, and industrial organizations. O’Connell designs and installs systems for all low voltage vertical markets and structured cabling systems. For national account work, our founding membership with United Technology Contractors (UTC) allows us to provide consistent service across all customer locations while maintaining a single point of contact.
