Cisco IOS Update Support
If your network includes Cisco appliances, you could be running an old version of Cisco IOS, the control software used in virtually all Cisco router and current switches from Cisco. Cisco frequently publishes upgrades to IOS to correct problems, shore up security weaknesses, or improve features. Unfortunately, updating Cisco IOS or other Cisco control software can be a challenge, depending upon your Cisco equipment and your system environment. For example, there could be limited internal Flash storage that might cause a new software version to execute incorrectly. Progent's Cisco CCIE-certified consultants can provide a broad selection of services associated with updating Cisco IOS or any other Cisco OS such as IOS XR, CallManager or Unified Communications Manager. Progent's consultants can perform inventories of your Cisco software, recommend appropriate updates, provision Cisco appliances, copy images, configure and verify your new software, optimize performance, resolve problems, and teach your IT managers how to get the benefits of any important new functions.

Cost-effective Network Support Solutions
Many small companies utilize poor metrics when shopping for a computer consultant. Cost per hour is usually not a good measure for value. A consultant with inadequate technical background can take several times longer to complete the identical task than an experienced IT expert. As an example, charging a third less per hour, but taking three times as long for the same job is hardly a deal. Even worse, a poorly designed or implemented network environment that is unreliable and difficult to manage or expand can cost a business many times more than its initial price due to lost productivity.
