About Us

Network Engineering (NE-INC) has been in the IT consulting business since 1987. We provide support for small and large central-Indiana companies across many industries.


Network Engineering, Inc (NEI) was created in July, 1987, in response to the need for a firm that assisted in the selection and procurement of computer hardware, network hardware, and network operating software. In 2011, we restructured our incorporation type and are now NE-INC, Incorporated (NE-INC) doing business as Network Engineering.
