Started in 1998…

Company founder and current C.E.O. Brian Schoen started Real Network Solutions, Inc (dba: Realnets) when most people needed the internet explained to them before discussing a website. We were at the start of the online revolution and thus have an understanding of today’s technology from the foundation up. We live and speak all things Internet. We do everything in-house, nothing is out sourced and nothing is offshore. Chicago is home for us.

We consider ourselves experts in a long list of things but namely open source solutions. We love a challenge. You might be looking to modernize legacy systems, move services to the cloud, revamp your PBX, re-dress a CMS, build a custom online application, or overhaul an out of control network room. We have experts in literally hundreds of technologies. Simply knowing the technology isn’t enough: skill matched with real business experience is what our team brings. That’s the real value of a relationship with Realnets: we can recommend solutions in all the areas your Information Technology strategy requires. We think outside the traditional lines and get you a strategy that delivers. This saves time, money and enables you to get the maximum return on your technology investments.
