Why is Being a Cisco CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a world-class network engineer who achieves this prestigious certification by passing thorough examinations supervised by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can tackle the most sophisticated issues involving network interfacing, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals work closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying anomalies with Cisco IOS software and creating temporary alternatives or obtaining program patches to resolve bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their skills are not readily available to the general public.

For companies anywhere in Alabama, Progent offers easy, quick, and affordable remote help from Cisco authorized CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite networking subject matter experts who earn this top-level certification only through thorough testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve even the most complex issues associated with network topology, setup, performance, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE professionals work intimately with Cisco engineers in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or acquiring patches to correct problems. Progent can provide fast online response from a CCIE so that you are able to receive timely help for complex network issues that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the scope of your usual network service providers. Progent's CCIE support professionals can access your network using advanced remote connectivity tools to provide rapid and affordable diagnosis and remediation of urgent network problems.
