- Internetwork Connectivity
Progent's system engineers have the depth of background to provide help in a wide range of networking technologies and architectures. Progent's Apple macOS and OS X experts can help your company to take advantage of Open Directory, Apple's open-systems directory and connection authentication services architecture.

Progent's experience with MS Windows and other networking platforms can help you plug into Microsoft's proprietary Active Directory. If your network deploys a mix of Apple macOS and OS X, Microsoft Windows, and Linux based-resources, Progent can help your organization to set up and manage a common directory instead of a separate directory or different client records for each operating system. Your clients will be enabled to shift easily between Mac and Microsoft Windows computers — and have the convenience of authenticated one-time sign-on availability of directory-based network resources.

Progent's network consultants are skilled in a variety of VoIP product families, such as products powered by Cisco Technology's Architecture for Voice, Video and Integrated Data (AVVID). Progent can give you access to a Cisco CCIE or Cisco Certified Network Professional to help your organization to deploy Cisco Voice over IP solutions. Progent can evaluate your current network and Internet access configuration to determine if your environment is ready to handle VoIP, assist you to identify and deploy Cisco products that fit with your present situation and future growth plans, and combine your Cisco Voice over IP solution with technology from other vendors.
