The Silicon Review
3GC Group was conceived in January 2003 as a result of enterprise and carrier businesses that were ill-served by the technology service providers who were inexperienced with the "Converged Networks" movement in technology; migrating all business communication applications onto a unified data network.
The key strength of 3GC Group in servicing clients around converged networks was a core philosophy to have each of its engineers achieve core expertise and experience across multiple IT disciplines. As the needs of its customers have grown and the IT industry has evolved, this core philosophy, called E-Cubed, has allowed 3GC Group to expand and provide higher levels of efficiency and translated into both cost and time savings for its clients.
Today, through its continued focus on multi-disciplinary engineers, 3GC Group provides consulting, solution design, implementation, and full-scale MSP services to clients throughout the US and internationally across a broad range of network infrastructure technologies.
3GC Group has built enterprise solutions around converged networks technologies and has grown to 45 specialized employees and 7 locations around this practice; 3 in California: Los Angeles, San Jose, and Richmond with additional offices in New York, Nevada, Canada and South Korea. 3GC Group has strong domestic and global reach with clients all across the United States, South America, Europe, Canada, China, India, Korea and Japan.
3GC Group Consulting
3GC has been providing clients with consulting for nearly a decade. As 3GC engineers specialize in specific specialties while simultaneously maintaining certifications and expertise in core networking and network security, as well as WAN traversal, 3GC services can implement projects more efficiently than many of its competitors. For many enterprises, the larger the network, the easier it is to encounter network issues that seem unsolvable as each vendor providing services in a specific part of the network fails to see the overall IT infrastructure to determine the actual issue. The company’s dedicated project managers understand the key to solving such issues may lie in two or three interdependent areas of a network pathway, and a multi-disciplinary approach is required to resolve the issue. This is where 3GC Group's E-Cubed philosophy shines. 3GC’s engineers look beyond a low performing phone system, a building access control RFID failure, a choppy IP video surveillance system, and analyses the entire pathway, from WAN connectivity to firewall and router settings, to problems in LAN switching infrastructure to resolve issues quickly.
PMP Project Management
The E-Cubed philosophy is also fundamental in solution design. Its PMP certified project management ensures its solution design simulates designs and pre-troubleshoots potential issues before implementation begins. This allows 3GC solution designers to pre-address problems instead of simply reacting to issues as they arise during a project implementation. For its clients, this also means the familiar and often dreaded change order paperwork is reduced, along with fewer task dependencies, and a smoother project implementation.
The MSP Platform: A proactive approach to technology and infrastructure management
If there's one certainty in IT, it's that things are uncertain. Computers crash, software doesn't work as it should, and problems occur. And when they do, the way that you respond can be the difference between a minor hiccup and a full-blown business interruption. Are you leaving IT to chance?
