The Silicon Review
“Convergence is a movement in technology to combine resources and applications onto one level platform for interoperability and optimization.”
It’s rare to find PBX and Physical Security VARs that have expertise in network infrastructure. On the flip side, most IT VAR’s are focused on standard software implementation or network hardware implementation. Neither type of company understands the nuances of the “Next Generation” Converged Network Technologies that combined both types of technologies into one solution bringing together traditionally disparate technologies and integrating them onto a core data network to ensure that it is optimized, reliable and secure. 3GC Group provides system design, implementation, integration, and management services for a complete end to end solution.
