Small company IT networks located throughout the state of California can get immediate phone-based help from a Cisco authorized CCIE infrastructure consultant to resolve critical problems that threaten your IT network. Progent retains the largest team of CCIE consultants accessible remotely of any independent service organization in the U.S. Rates are affordable, billing is per minute, engagement is quick, and support is world class.

In case your California company is based away from major urban areas like Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Long Beach, Fresno, or Sacramento, help from authorized CCIE experts is often unavailable when there's a network crash. This could mean a drop in revenue for your company. By utilizing Progent, you can get in touch with a Cisco certified CCIE professional ready to offer the expertise to keep your computer network running.

What Makes Support from a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level network engineer who achieves this elite certification by passing tough examinations supervised by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can deal with even the most complex problems associated with network deployment, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists operate directly with Cisco's internal staff in identifying problems with IOS software and coming up with workarounds or downloading software updates to resolve bugs. Most CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not easily accessible to the general public.

For small and midsize companies anywhere in California, Progent offers convenient, quick, and cost-effective online help from Cisco authorized CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified network gurus who are awarded this prestigious certification only as a result of strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle the most complicated problems surrounding network architecture, configuration, capacity, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate closely with Cisco engineers in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS software and developing fixes or acquiring software updates to resolve anomalies. Progent offers fast online access to a CCIE so that you are able to get immediate assistance for complex network issues that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the expertise of your local network service providers. Progent's CCIE support engineers can access your environment via state-of-the-art remote support tools in order to deliver quick and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent network difficulties.
