Managed Networks

Cogent manages networks 24/7. Networks are the core of modern ICT. If your network is not performing, it’s costing you time and money – not to mention frustrating downtime.


Our monitoring will tell you whether your network devices are doing the job or not; if your network slows down for any reason, instant alerts enable you to take suitable action before serious problems occur.

Just like computers, network devices also frequently need security patches. All the vendors regularly release critical updates and feature packs for enhanced security and performance.

As part of our network maintenance solution, we ensure that your network devices are as safe and reliable as they can be.

Let us help you take a proactive approach and keep your network humming.


New demands of Mobility, BYOD, the Cloud and Virtualization are reshaping networks. There is more demand, more devices, more applications, more multimedia, and a dynamic and mobile workforce. All this innovation drives the need to review and improve the network. Cogent can provide Unified Access - efficient and powerful bandwidth on wired and wireless.  Exceptional performance from the core to the edge.  Increased WLAN coverage, high availability, and PoE+ to support an explosion of new IP enabled devices and wireless AP’s.

Cogent can help you with a complete network solution. Your network needs to be intelligent, with visibility and control of the users, devices and applications to automatically adapt in order to offer robust security and superior QoS to an ever changing environment.

Our partnerships with Alcatel Lucent, Aruba Networks and Huawei ensure our clients get the best possible end-to-end solution.
