Affordable Network Support Solutions
Many small organizations utilize poor metrics when shopping for a computer consultant. Cost per hour is usually not a reliable measure for value. A consultant with insufficient experience can take many times longer to perform the same task than a seasoned IT expert. As an example, charging a third less per hour, but taking three times as long for the same job is not a bargain. Still worse, a poorly architected or configured network infrastructure that is undependable and difficult to administer or expand can cost a business many times over its initial price due to lost productivity. Progent's customer testimonials from satisfied companies across the United States indicate the efficiency of Progent's support model and the expertise of Progent's staff of IT professionals.

Cisco IOS Upgrade Support
If your network includes Cisco routers, you may be using an outdated version of Cisco IOS, the operating system used in almost every Cisco router as well as current switches from Cisco.

However, upgrading IOS or other Cisco OS platforms can be tricky, depending on your Cisco device and your network environment. As an example, there may be limited local RAM that might cause a new OS release to execute incorrectly. Progent's Cisco CCIE network engineers offer a wide selection of support services associated with upgrading Cisco IOS or any other Cisco OS such as IOS XR, CallManager or Unified Communications Manager. Progent's consultants can run inventories of your Cisco software, recommend sensible updates, prepare Cisco appliances, transfer images, configure and verify your Cisco software, optimize throughput, troubleshoot problems, and teach your IT managers how to utilize any important new functions.
