Solution Design

In designing a network, the E-Cubed philosophy is especially valuable to our clients as we provide detailed configuration tests and catch potential problems during the planning and design phase, reducing delays during the actual implementation and set up process. In large networks upgrading or replacing parts of a network can have adverse effects on other inter-dependent systems. 3GC provides detailed analyses of all components of a network, from the phone system to WAN connections, to bandwidth, gateways, routers, switching infrastructure, and network security to ensure that all systems touching the network are carefully considered in the final design.

Network Infrastructure

Network infrastructure core expertise is the foundation of 3GC Group's E-Cubed philosophy. By requiring our engineers to be triple trained on converged technology, perimeter technology, and core networking infrastructure, our engineers can finely tune solution design for new networks, and quickly trouble-shoot legacy networks for faster turn-around solutions. While the converged technology and perimeter technology may vary from engineer to engineer, the focal point for every engineer is core network infrastructure. All of our engineers are certified on either Juniper or Cisco or both, with a particular focus on L2-L3 networking.

3GC Group's most common initial interaction with clients centers around optimizing existing networks. Many networks, without fine tuning, often run at 30-40% of their optimum capability. By fine tuning network configurations to carefully optimize communication and route hops, managing node relationships, and re-architecting VLANs and routing, as well a house-cleaning EoL nodes where required, many networks can boost performance and reliability up to 3x without purchasing new equipment or completely re-designing a network from scratch. This can often be a stopgap measure with upgrades being carefully spaced out to minimize cost-prohibitive capex impact, or project planned for a seamlessly timed rip and replace to minimize opex impact and ensure reduced technical support requirements over time.

Unified Communications

The 3GC E cubed method brings you unified communication solutions through a converged network that includes WAN, VOIP, Video across all types of employees whether they are in a main location, multiple locations, mobile or remote. We start by looking at the WAN, LAN, current usage, and  future goals then redesign the flows to optimize our clients goals.

We believe that the best way to evolve is to understand our clients' needs by optimizing the existing UC infrastructure and introducing new solutions that may be missing, for new replacement deployments, designing a solution that matches our clients' needs.

Often times the holistic network flows on a UC platform are improperly designed resulting in jitter, echo, dropped calls and general call quality issues. We review the entire company's infrastructure and operational needs to design a comprehensive UC system, whether in the cloud, on premise or colocation. Our team guides clients through implementation as well as ongoing support.

With over a decade of experience in implementing unified communications from the SMB market to large public corporations, 3GC can provide implementation and support for traditional phone systems, VoIP, hybrid cloud, and cloud UC solutions, and features ranging from enterprise UC apps on smartphones and tablets to web and video conferencing, and contact center integration.

CEPS (Converged Electronic Physical Security)

Over the last decade traditionally disparate technologies have continued to converge onto the data network, and physical building security has rapidly evolved and today often falls under the IT budget. From building access RFID systems, to magnetic door control systems, and IP Video surveillance systems, converged electronic physical security is critical to today's IT operations. 3GC brings physical security to another level, by applying our E-Cubed method to support, implementation, and solution design.  We have a hands-on approach with our discovery, project management and installation to provide you with the most sophisticated physical security system to fit your requirements and budget.
