What Makes Being a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A CCIE is a world-class network expert who achieves this prestigious recognition only after rigorous examinations supervised by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can deal with the most sophisticated problems involving network interfacing, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists operate directly with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying issues with IOS software and developing temporary alternatives or finding program patches to resolve problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their services are not readily accessible to the general public.

For companies anywhere in Alaska, Progent offers easy, fast, and affordable remote access to Cisco CCIE support professionals. CCIEs are elite networking experts who earn this top-level classification only after intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve even the most complex problems associated with network topology, setup, capacity, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE experts work closely with Cisco engineers in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or acquiring patches to resolve problems. Progent can provide fast online access to a CCIE so you can get immediate assistance for tough network problems that are impacting business efficiency but are outside the expertise of your local network service resources. Progent's CCIE support engineers can access your environment using state-of-the-art remote support tools in order to deliver quick and cost-effective analysis and remediation of urgent network problems.
