Our History


RCA Communication Systems: There in the beginning, still here today.

RCA-domeThe field of communications technology rapidly advanced over the course of the previous century and few of the big names of those early days maintained the name recognition and longevity into this new, twenty-first century. The Radio Corporation of America (RCA) is one name that did. It’s positioned at the top of a short list of industry greats that has endured through time and continued to evolve over a revolutionary century of technology. RCA is known worldwide for its commitment to serving the needs of the communications
market with unsurpassed durability and reliability. RCA has long understood its customer’s need for communication devices that can perform even under the harshest of work environments: the first RCA radios were designed to withstand military purposes in wartime, combat conditions. As communication technology expanded beyond governmental and military use to a population of consumers welcoming and eager for technological advancement, RCA was the dominant industry leader. The name became synonymous with groundbreaking, trendsetting, communication innovation.
