Why is Support from a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level infrastructure specialist who qualifies for this prestigious certification by completing strenuous testing given by Cisco. A CCIE can deal with even the most sophisticated issues associated with network integration, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs work closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying issues with Cisco IOS utilities and developing temporary alternatives or downloading software patches to fix bugs. Most CCIEs work for large enterprises or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not readily available to small businesses.

For companies throughout California, Progent can provide convenient, fast, and affordable online help from Cisco certified CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized networking subject matter experts who earn this top-level classification only through intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complex issues surrounding network architecture, setup, performance, repair, and service. Progentís CCIE professionals cooperate closely with Cisco engineers in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or obtaining patches to resolve anomalies. Progent can provide fast online access to a CCIE so you are able to receive immediate assistance for complex network issues that are impacting worker efficiency but are outside the expertise of your local network service resources. Progent's CCIE consulting professionals can link to your network using state-of-the-art remote connectivity technology to provide rapid and cost-effective diagnosis and repair of critical network difficulties.
