Small office IT networks situated throughout the state of Illinois can now have instant online access to a Cisco certified CCIE network consultant to fix the toughest issues that threaten your computer network. Progent retains the most extensive team of CCIE network support professionals accessible online of any independent support firm in the country. The cost is reasonable, billing is by the minute, sign-up is fast, and service is unbeatable.

If your Illinois small business is located outside of larger urban areas including Chicago, Aurora, Rockford, or Naperville, help from qualified CCIE engineers is often unavailable when there's a network crash. This could mean a loss of productivity for your company. By utilizing Progent's remote support, you have access to a CCIE engineer who can deliver the expertise to get your computer network on line.

What Makes Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a world-class network professional who qualifies for this prestigious title by completing rigorous testing administered by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can handle the most sophisticated problems associated with computer network integration, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists operate closely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying issues with IOS software and developing workarounds or downloading program updates to resolve bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national ISPs, and so their services are not easily available to small businesses.

For small and midsize companies anywhere in Illinois, Progent offers convenient, quick, and affordable online access to Cisco certified CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified network subject matter experts who are awarded this top-level certification only as a result of intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve the most complicated problems associated with network architecture, deployment, optimization, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing fixes or acquiring patches to correct anomalies. Progent offers prompt online access to a CCIE so you are able to receive immediate assistance for tough network issues that are affecting worker efficiency but are outside the expertise of your usual network service resources. Progent's CCIE support engineers can access your environment via state-of-the-art online connectivity technology to provide quick and cost-effective diagnosis and remediation of urgent network difficulties.
