Network Management Solutions ConsultingAn abundance of network management products from Cisco and third-party suppliers highlights the value and difficulty of supporting IT infrastructure. Progent's seasoned network management engineers are expert at helping businesses develop management solutions utilizing on SNMP, SYSLOG services, and Cisco NetFlow to build effective tools for tracking network bandwidth usage and network latency, monitoring important router and switch operational metrics, and identifying traffic profiles, applications, and appliances that use network services.

Progent can help customers to utilize a rich selection of free and proprietary management products to maintain Cisco infrastructure. Tools familiar to Progent's engineers include MRTG, Nagios, PRTG, Cisco Cisco ASDM, Cisco Network Assistant, CiscoWorks, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Concord E-Health, AlterPoint DeviceAuthority, Adventnet Netflow and Firewall Analyzer, Big Brother, Solarwinds Orion, and NetMRI.

Network management platforms can allow organizations to understand current network usage and intelligently plan for downstream traffic expansion. Network management utilities can also be used to highlight inefficient or inappropriate utilization of network resources, for example streaming audio and video, peer-to-peer sharing, etc. that can eat up expensive or scarce network bandwidth. A carefully planned network management solution can also enable businesses to arrive at informed choices on system improvements once they understand the amount of system bandwidth actually required at specific times.

Putting an effective network management solution in operation beforehand is essential to prevent severe problems that can follow Denial Of Service attacks and dangerous viruses/Trojans. These assaults can render the network unusable and without appropriate utilities it can be difficult, if not practically impossible, to discover the source of the problem.
