Small business computer networks situated within Alaska can now have immediate online contact with a Cisco certified CCIE network specialist to help with complex issues involving their network. Progent maintains the largest group of CCIE consultants available online of any independent support organization in the United States. The cost is reasonable, charges are by the minute, engagement is fast, and service is unbeatable.

In case your Alaska office is based away from larger metropolitan areas including Anchorage, Juneau, or Fairbanks, support from Cisco certified CCIE engineers is often unavailable during a crisis. This can cause a loss of productivity for your company. By contacting Progent's online services, you can get in touch with a Cisco certified CCIE professional who can offer the assistance to get your computer network running.

What Makes Access to a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE is a top-level networking expert who earns this ultimate certification by completing thorough testing given by Cisco. A CCIE can handle the most sophisticated issues associated with computer network interfacing, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists work closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in analyzing problems with IOS utilities and developing temporary alternatives or obtaining program patches to resolve problems. Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily available to small businesses.

For organizations throughout Alaska, Progent can provide easy, fast, and cost-effective remote help from Cisco CCIE engineers. CCIEs are elite network experts who are awarded this top-level certification only as a result of strenuous testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve even the most complicated issues associated with network planning, setup, capacity, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate intimately with Cisco engineers in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS software and devising workarounds or obtaining software updates to correct anomalies. Progent offers prompt remote support from a CCIE so that you can get timely help for complex network problems that are affecting worker efficiency but are outside the scope of your local network support providers. Progent's CCIE support experts can access your environment using state-of-the-art online connectivity technology to provide quick and cost-effective analysis and remediation of critical network difficulties.
