For 30 years, Carolina Advanced Digital, Inc., a nationally recognized leader in technology infrastructure and security solutions, has been providing exceptional engineering services and products to government, education, healthcare and commercial clients – including Fortune 100 and 500 companies, Department of Defense and civilian agencies – across the United States. Family owned and operated since 1985, the company is headquartered in Cary, North Carolina with offices and resources in North Carolina, Florida and Texas.
Carolina Advanced Digital began with a brown cradle phone in the rural community of Siler City, North Carolina. John Jabbusch, Chief Engineer and President of the company, has always had an extreme interest in technology. While attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, his first project was automating a mill feed with a custom control panel that significantly increased production for a local feed mill. After college, John joined the US Navy, in which he served in Naval Intelligence (NIPS) centers, and where he met his wife and now business partner, Susan. John started the company 30 years ago in the basement of their Siler City home.
Fast forwarding to 2015, Carolina Advanced Digital now has numerous government contracts and holds the highest tier of partnership with key manufacturers such as HP, Dell, Barracuda Networks, and Juniper Networks. Current projects include implementing county-wide networks for local governments, encrypting sensitive data for federal agencies and designing full turnkey networking solutions for community colleges.
As a leader in technology, Carolina Advanced Digital’s core objective is to help clients by creating mission-focused solutions, focusing on professional services offerings and selecting products for practical functionality. Carolina Advanced Digital has extensive engineering expertise in the solutions it offers. By having knowledge and experience specific to a number of specialized markets, such as federal agencies, state and local governments, education and corporate enterprise, any customer with a requirement for high-performance, high-reliability and high-security IT environments will benefit from the level of service and support provided.
The company principals employ more than 60 years of combined professional Information Technology industry experience to refine the company offerings to a focused solution set. These years of experience have enabled Carolina Advanced Digital to develop methods and highly detailed procedures that are employed in every phase of the professional service operation: discovery, planning, scoping, design, implementation, maintenance and execution, resulting in a fully successful implementation the first time, every time. Carolina Advanced Digital’s business success is built on a foundation of expert planning for the solution – its design, implementation and management; a simple concept, but one that requires substantial technical expertise and experienced application to produce the desired result.
Carolina Advanced Digital hopes to make its 30th year in business the best yet by focusing on performance-driven initiatives that will better serve its customers. “We are here for our customers—plain and simple,” states John Jabbusch, President of Carolina Advanced Digital.
