Cisco Network Management Solutions Consulting and Support ServicesAn abundance of network management utilities from Cisco and third-party vendors underscores the value and complexity of network management. Progent's Cisco qualified network management consultants are experienced at assisting companies design management strategies based on Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), SYSLOG services, and Cisco Netflow protocols to build effective mechanisms for network bandwidth usage and latency, viewing important router and switch performance characteristics, and recognizing traffic patterns, applications, and appliances that use network resources.

Progent can help businesses to utilize a broad range of free and proprietary monitoring and management utilities to maintain a Cisco-powered environment. Tools used by Progent's consultants include Cacti, Nagios, Paessler Router Traffic Grapher, Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), Cisco Network Assistant, CiscoWorks, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Advent and Firewall Analyzer, Solarwinds Orion, and NetMRI.

Network management platforms can help organizations to understand current network usage and effectively plan for downstream capacity expansion. Network management tools can also be deployed to detect poor or improper uses of system resources, for example streaming audio and video, peer-to-peer file sharing, etc. that can eat up expensive or scarce network bandwidth. A carefully designed network management solution can also aid organizations to arrive at intelligent choices on WAN and LAN improvements after they recognize how much network resources historically required at specific times.

Putting an effective network management platform in place in advance is critical to avoid severe disruptions that can follow Denial Of Service attacks and dangerous viruses/Trojans. These events can render the network unusable and without proper tools it can be difficult, and sometimes virtually impossible, to identify the source of the trouble.
