Cisco IOS software Upgrade Support
If you includes Cisco Systems appliances, you could be using an old release of Cisco IOS, the control software powering virtually all Cisco router and current switches from Cisco.

Cost-effective Computer Support Solutions
Many small organizations rely on poor metrics when searching for a computer consultant. Cost per hour is usually not a good measure for value. A consultant with insufficient technical background can take many times longer to perform the same task than a seasoned IT professional. For example, charging 30% less per hour, but taking three times longer for the same job is hardly a bargain. Even worse, a badly architected or configured network infrastructure that is unreliable and difficult to manage or expand can cost an organization many times more than its initial price due to lost productivity. Progent's customer testimonials from satisfied businesses throughout the U.S. confirm the efficiency of Progent's service model and the expertise of Progent's team of engineers.
