Small office IT networks located in Illinois can now have immediate online contact with a Cisco certified CCIE infrastructure consultant to assist with the toughest issues involving your computer network. Progent maintains the most extensive group of Cisco CCIE support professionals accessible by phone of any nationwide support organization in the country. The cost is affordable, billing is per minute, sign-up is fast, and service is world class.

If your Illinois network is based beyond major urban areas like Chicago, Aurora, Rockford, or Naperville, access to qualified CCIE experts may be difficult to find when there's a network crash. This could mean a drop in revenue for your business. By utilizing Progent's remote support, you have access to a CCIE consultant who can deliver the expertise to get your network operating.

What Makes Being a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class networking expert who achieves this elite title by completing rigorous testing administered by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can tackle even the most sophisticated issues involving computer network interfacing, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals operate directly with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying issues with IOS utilities and coming up with workarounds or downloading software updates to fix bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national ISPs, and so their services are not readily accessible to small businesses.

For organizations anywhere in Illinois, Progent can provide easy, fast, and economical online help from Cisco authorized CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized network subject matter experts who are awarded this top-level classification only as a result of thorough testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve the most complex problems associated with network architecture, deployment, performance, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate closely with Cisco engineers in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. Progent can provide prompt remote access to a CCIE so that you can get timely assistance for complex network problems that are impacting business efficiency but are beyond the scope of your local network support resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can access your environment via state-of-the-art online support tools in order to deliver quick and cost-effective diagnosis and repair of critical network problems.
