- Internetwork Integration
Progent’s system professionals have the depth of experience to provide expertise in a wide range of connectivity mechanisms and architectures. Progent’s macOS and OS X experts can assist your organization to benefit from Open Directory, Apple’s standards-based directory and network authentication services platform. Open Directory relies on proven open source mechanisms like Open Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Kerberos Network Authentication Protocol for seamless compatibility with other standards-based LDAP servers. Progent’s expertise with Windows and other networking platforms can help you integrate with Microsoft’s proprietary Active Directory and Novell’s eDirectory. If your infrastructure deploys a combination of Mac, MS Windows, and Linux/UNIX systems, Progent can help you to set up and administer a common directory rather than a different directory or separate client records for each operating system. Your clients will be able to shift easily between Mac and Microsoft Windows computers — and benefit from authenticated single sign-on availability of directory-based network resources.
- Voice over IP (VoIP) Help
Voice over IP is phone technology that transmits digitized voice across a network based on IP standards. Progent's network engineers are skilled in a variety of VoIP product families, including products powered by Cisco Technology's AVVID architecture. Progent can give you access to a Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert or Cisco CCNP to help you to install Cisco Voice over IP technology. Progent can assess your current network configuration to determine whether your environment is optimized to support Voice over IP, assist you to identify and configure Cisco hardware and software that fit with your current requirements and future growth strategy, and combine your Cisco Voice over IP (VoIP) solution with technology from other suppliers.
- Apple Xserve Servers, Xserve Fault-Tolerant Disk Array, and Xsan SAN Consulting Help
Progent’s substantial background with UNIX in commercial environments allows Progent to offer integration services for Apple's Xserve platform that lets you maximize the strategic value of your Apple Mac network. Apple’s Xserve is based on the macOS and OS X Server, the UNIX OS built on standards-based network services. Xserve provides cross-platform support for native file sharing, as well as WebDAV server, POP and IMAP email, ftp, and DNS. Xserve RAID combines affordable, high-capacity Ultra ATA drive technology with an industry standard 2Gb Fibre Channel interface for fast, fault-tolerant data access. Xserve RAID works with Apple macOS and OS X Server, Windows servers, Linux or Netware servers and allows network users to share up to 2 petabytes (2PB) of disk space. A SAN allows you to pool data over multiple RAID drives for improved enhanced performance, giving every client access to shared data via a high-speed Fibre Channel network.
- High-speed Wireless Networking

Progent can also assist you to develop a wireless security plan that dovetails with the security plan for your entire business network. In addition, Progent can assist you to plan, configure, and maintain point-to-point/multipoint bridges that provide an inexpensive means to incorporate many buildings into a seamless network.
