Network management tools assist organizations to implement infrastructure effectively, access client information rapidly, monitor network health, troubleshoot problems, protect against and respond to cyber attacks, and maximize responsiveness. Network management systems can spot inefficient or improper uses of network resources such as streaming media or peer-to-peer file sharing that can waste bandwidth, lower employee productivity or enable data leakage. A well crafted network management environment can also help companies to make smart capacity planning decisions by showing tendencies in network usage for different periods or tasks.

Meraki Dashboard Consultants

The Meraki Dashboard offers simplified cloud management for Cisco infrastructure hardware

Cisco offers a rich and growing portfolio of network management solutions that support centralized management for on-premises, cloud-based, or hybrid network models. With Cisco's later generation of security, switching, and Wi-Fi infrastructure products, you can run Meraki, Cisco DNA Center, or CLI management platforms for network monitoring and management. For example, you can interface the latest Catalyst or Meraki switches and Catalyst or Meraki WiFi 6/6E access points to the Meraki dashboard to manage vital components of your corporate infrastructure from the cloud. Progent's Catalyst WiFi AP consultants, Meraki WiFi AP consultants, Catalyst switches consultants, and Cisco Meraki switches experts can assist you to plan, deploy and tune a modern solution for network infrastructure monitoring and management.

Legacy Network Management Tools from Cisco and Others
Network Management Solutions Professional HelpA wealth of network management tools from Cisco and other vendors underscores the value and difficulty of supporting IT infrastructure. Progent's seasoned network management consultants are experienced at assisting businesses design management solutions based on Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Syslog, and NetFlow protocols to build powerful mechanisms for network utilization and latency, monitoring important router and switch operational metrics, and identifying traffic profiles, processes, and appliances that use network services.

Progent can assist businesses to deploy a rich range of open source and proprietary monitoring and management tools to manage a Cisco network. Utilities used by Progent's engineers include Cacti, Nagios, Paessler Router Traffic Grapher, Cisco Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager, Cisco Monitor Manager, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Advent and Firewall Analyzer, Solarwinds Orion, and NetMRI.

Network management platforms can allow IT administrators to be aware of existing system utilization and intelligently prepare for downstream capacity expansion. Management utilities can also be used to detect poor or inappropriate utilization of system services, such as streaming multimedia, peer-to-peer sharing, etc. that can use up expensive and scarce network bandwidth. A well crafted network management strategy can also help businesses to make intelligent decisions on WAN and LAN enhancements once they recognize how much system bandwidth actually required at specific times.

Having an effective network management system in operation in advance is vital to prevent severe disruptions that can follow Denial Of Service attacks and malicious viruses/Trojans. These assaults can leave the network unstable and without appropriate tools it can be time consuming, if not virtually impossible, to discover the location of the problem.

How Progent Can Help Your Business with Network Management
Progent's Cisco-Certified network consultants can show you how to use Cisco's network management utilities alongside an array of powerful third-party applications to develop a complete network management strategy to keep your infrastructure operating dependably, conserve expensive resources, protect your data, recover rapidly from hardware failure or malicious attacks, and enable you to scale or reassign system resources intelligently and economically as your organization grows.

Progent can also assist you to utilize network management applications to monitor and classify network data to enable traffic shaping, which permits you to configure Cisco routers to enforce a variety of throughput restrictions on designated classes of processes according to the priorities you assign. By buffering and sorting excess packets that exceed your contracted rates, and by giving preference to business-critical applications, traffic shaping can prevent Internet Service Provider excess usage charges from spiraling out of reach and/or eliminate gaps in worker productivity caused by brute force enforcement of your network bandwidth restrictions during peak use.

Progent's CISM, CISSP, and ISSAP security consultants can help you to create a comprehensive security plan that incorporates your network management solution, and Progent's remote and on-site support specialists and Cisco CCIE-certified engineers can utilize advanced network monitoring and analysis technology to identify and remediate problems quickly to keep your network running smoothly.
