About Fortran Corporation

Fortran is a public investment, holding, and advisory firm that has subsidiary companies in the Telecommunications and Data sector.

Our subsidiary companies are converting the historical and traditional Telecom business model to a Telecom-As-A-Service ("TaaS"). The TaaS model that our subsidiary companies offer is comprised of design, network service, technical certifications, remote monitoring, on-site service, with dedicated sales and engineering.

With these companies being able to offer these modern telecommunication technologies, companies, and organizations that have new or update-needed install requirements can save hundreds or even thousands compared to aging copper or wired digital infrastructures. Furthermore, companies can now integrate their voice platform with data network technology to improve collaboration and usability. Our subsidiary companies offer one-stop service and products to provide these organizations with the very best in both value and quality for communications and data network services.
