A famous company that specializes in SI and NI and grew with the Korean IT industry…

In 1972, Barun Technology was founded as a KDC trading company when the term, IT, was unfamiliar. It has grown up with a myriad of Korea’s first’ and ‘the world’s first’ products. It started supplying modems as the first data communication company in Korea in 1972 and first localized a 1200bps modem in 1980. At that time, it achieved import substitution effect corresponding to over 500 billion won.

It has dominated the Korean communications and network equipment market through the sustainable development of products: the Korea’s first multiplexer in 1983, the Korea’s first Data Control Unit in 1985 and the Korea’s first Frame Relay switcher in 1995. As a result, it was awarded the Presidential prize for its contribution to the development of the Information and Communications Industry in 1998. Furthermore, in 1988, its Dacom DLS network construction project also led to its first network integration (NI) project to build most of Korea’s ICT infrastructure networks including public, financial, and educational sectors. In 1996, it also won the honor of the first company listed on KOSDAQ established as an independent stock market.

There is a saying that goes: “All roads lead to Rome”. Rome had been the world’s strongest country for a long time due to the infrastructure, ‘Road’, created by Rome. The largest infrastructure in the era of the fourth industrial revolution represented by the hyperconnected society consists in networks.   With a deep understanding of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) accumulated over 50 years and the support thoroughly provided by our 10,000 sites and 13 maintenance organizations nationwide (Seoul, Busan, Daegu, Gwangju, etc), we will carefully protect your ICT network assets.

The history of the IT industry in Korea is the history of Barun Technology. We Barun Technology will grow into a Korean leading company in the ICT industry through our continuous innovations and challenges, from ‘Korea’s first’ to ‘the world’s first’ products.
