What Makes Being a CCIE-certified Consultant So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level network professional who qualifies for this ultimate certification only after strenuous examinations administered by Cisco. CCIEs can handle the most sophisticated problems surrounding computer network integration, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals communicate directly with Cisco's internal staff in identifying anomalies with Cisco IOS software and creating temporary alternatives or obtaining software updates to correct problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily accessible to small businesses.

For organizations throughout Connecticut, Progent offers easy, quick, and cost-effective online access to Cisco certified CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite network gurus who are awarded this top-level classification only through strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complex problems surrounding network architecture, setup, performance, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS software and devising fixes or acquiring software updates to resolve problems. Progent offers fast remote response from a CCIE so you can get timely help for complex network problems that are impacting business productivity but are outside the scope of your local IT support providers. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can link to your environment via state-of-the-art online connectivity tools to deliver rapid and cost-effective analysis and remediation of urgent network problems.
