This can result in lost productivity for your business. By contacting Progent, you have access to a Cisco CCIE consultant who can deliver the assistance to get your network running.

What Makes Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level network engineer who achieves this elite recognition by completing strenuous examinations administered by Cisco. CCIEs can deal with even the most complex issues associated with network interfacing, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists work directly with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying anomalies with IOS utilities and developing workarounds or finding program updates to correct problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily accessible to small businesses.

For businesses throughout Illinois, Progent can provide convenient, quick, and cost-effective remote access to Cisco certified CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite networking subject matter experts who earn this top-level classification only through thorough examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle even the most complicated issues surrounding network planning, implementation, performance, repair, and service. Progentís CCIE experts work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. Progent can provide fast remote support from a CCIE so you can get immediate assistance for tough network issues that are impacting business productivity but are beyond the expertise of your local network support resources. Progent's CCIE consulting professionals can access your environment via state-of-the-art remote support tools to deliver quick and cost-effective analysis and remediation of urgent network problems.
