What Makes Support from a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A CCIE is a world-class network engineer who earns this elite certification only after strenuous examinations given by Cisco. CCIEs can deal with even the most complex issues surrounding network interfacing, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals work freely with Cisco's internal staff in identifying anomalies with IOS utilities and creating temporary alternatives or downloading software updates to correct bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily available to the general public.

For small and midsize companies throughout Alabama, Progent can provide convenient, quick, and affordable remote help from Cisco certified CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized networking gurus who earn this top-level classification only after intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve the most complicated problems associated with network design, integration, optimization, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE professionals work intimately with Cisco engineers in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS software and developing fixes or obtaining patches to resolve problems. Progent can provide fast online access to a CCIE so that you can get immediate assistance for tough network issues that are affecting worker efficiency but are outside the scope of your local network support resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can link to your environment via advanced online connectivity technology to provide quick and affordable diagnosis and remediation of urgent network problems.
