AC4S: Pioneering the Converged IP, Cyber and Mission Support Services and Solutions MarketAC4S: Pion

CIO Vendor Tampa based AC4S is a provider of Converged IP, Cyber and Mission Support Services and Solutions. AC4S was formed by U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force veterans with extensive tactical and commercial telecommunications experience. The three founders' vision was to provide world-class global customer support. "We are reliable partners and extremely responsive to our customers' needs. We don't sell Professional Services, we actually help solve our customers problems," says Hugh S. Campbell, Founder of AC4S. The company does this by leveraging its unique knowledge and technical expertise of both military and commercial networks to "Bridge the Gap" between commercial and government networking solutions.

AC4S was initially conceived of by Joint Communications Support Element veterans in tents near the end of an airstrip supporting a classified JCSE mission. The three founders solidified the idea during the 2002 JCSE Reunion picnic on MacDill AFB, Florida and founded AC4S on 19 August 2002. Their vision was to provide world-class global customer support with the express purpose of providing joint network planners and contractor support to JCSE.
Since then AC4S has grown to over 200 professionals with extensive experience in military and civilian information technology, telecommunications, mission support services and recently, cyberspace.

The company provides technical support services in eighteen different states and twelve countries. It provides a wide range of services and solutions for government customers. These include three main lines of business: converged-IP services and solutions involving everything over IP; cyber services and solutions with a focus on cyber security, and; mission support services - providing mission essential and enabling life support services in austere, expeditionary and hostile environments.

The company's single biggest client is the Department of State from a total revenue perspective. It has large groups of individuals supporting the Department of Defense in intelligence and joint, tactical communications organizations. While the whole country was facing a recession, AC4S was still experiencing a positive growth. The company found such success because it specializes in doing the hard-to-do things for customers. After solidifying its footprint in the market the company plans to continue being the market leader.

Going forward the company will continue to diversify its customer base by bringing its experience supporting large federal agencies to the commercial and international marketplace.
