Network management systems assist companies to implement infrastructure effectively, look up user information quickly, monitor system health, troubleshoot problems, protect against and respond to threats, and optimize performance. Network management tools can spot inefficient or inappropriate uses of network services such as streaming multimedia or peer-to-peer file sharing that can burn up bandwidth, lower employee output or leave you vulnerable to data leaks. A well planned network management environment can also help organizations to make smart capacity planning decisions by showing tendencies in resource demand for various periods or activities.

Cisco Meraki Dashboard Consultants

The Meraki Dashboard offers unified cloud management for Cisco infrastructure appliances

Cisco has developed a diverse and expanding portfolio of infrastructure management solutions that support centralized management for local, cloud-based, or hybrid network models. With Cisco's newer generation of security, switching, and Wi-Fi infrastructure products, you can run Meraki, DNA Center, or CLI management platforms for network management. For instance, you can interface newer Catalyst or Meraki switches and Catalyst or Meraki Wi-Fi APs to the Meraki dashboard to manage critical layers of your IT infrastructure from the cloud. Progent's Cisco Catalyst WiFi access point experts, Cisco Meraki Wi-Fi AP consultants, Catalyst switches experts, and Meraki switches consulting experts can help your organization to design, deploy and tune a modern solution for network management.

Traditional Network Management Tools from Cisco and Others
Cisco Network Management Solutions ExpertiseAn abundance of network management tools from Cisco and other vendors underscores the importance and difficulty of maintaining networks. Progent's seasoned network management consultants are expert at helping companies design network management strategies based on SNMP, Syslog, and Cisco IOS NetFlow to build effective tools for tracking network utilization and latency, viewing key router and switch performance characteristics, and recognizing traffic patterns, applications, and devices utilizing available resources.

Progent can help businesses to deploy a broad selection of free and proprietary monitoring and management tools to manage a Cisco network. Tools used by Progent's engineers include MRTG, Cacti, Nagios, Cisco Cisco ASDM, Cisco Monitor Manager, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Concord E-Health, Adventnet Netflow and Firewall Analyzer, Solarwinds Orion, and Necordia NetMRI.

Network management platforms can help IT administrators to be aware of current network utilization and effectively prepare for downstream traffic increases. Network management utilities can also be used to identify inefficient or improper utilization of system services, for example streaming multimedia, peer-to-peer file sharing, etc. that can waste expensive or limited network resources. A carefully designed network management solution can also help organizations to make intelligent choices on system improvements after they appreciate how much system bandwidth really needed at various times.

Having an efficient network management solution in place in advance is vital to avoid major problems that can follow Denial Of Service attacks and dangerous viruses/Trojans. These assaults can render the network unstable and without proper tools it can be difficult, if not virtually impossible, to identify the location of the problem.

How Progent Can Help Your Business with Network Management Solutions
Progent's Cisco-Premier network engineers can help you to use Cisco's management tools in combination with a variety of effective third-party applications to create a complete management solution to keep your infrastructure running smoothly, conserve valuable resources, protect your data, recover quickly from equipment breakdowns or malicious assaults, and enable you to scale or repurpose network resources effectively and affordably as your organization grows.

Progent can also help you to utilize network management utilities to monitor and categorize system data to enable traffic shaping, which permits you to program Cisco routers to enforce different bandwidth restrictions on designated types of processes according to the priorities you assign. By storing and sorting data packets that exceed your contracted volume, and by assigning priority to business-critical processes, traffic shaping can keep ISP overage charges from spinning out of control and/or avoid gaps in productivity caused by brute force policing of your network traffic volume restrictions during periods of heavy use.

Progent's CISM and CISSP security specialists can help you to create an end-to-end security strategy that incorporates your network management processes, and Progent's remote and on-site network specialists and Cisco CCIE-certified engineers can utilize the latest network management tools to isolate and repair trouble quickly to keep your network productive.
