If your Illinois small business is beyond major metropolitan neighborhoods including Chicago, Aurora, Rockford, or Naperville, support from Cisco certified CCIE engineers is often difficult to find when there's an emergency.

By contacting Progent's online services, you have access to a Cisco certified CCIE engineer who can provide the help to keep your information system operating.

Why is Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level infrastructure specialist who qualifies for this prestigious recognition by completing strenuous testing supervised by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can deal with even the most complicated issues surrounding network integration, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists operate closely with Cisco's internal staff in analyzing issues with Cisco IOS utilities and creating workarounds or finding software patches to resolve bugs. Most CCIEs work for large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their help is not readily accessible to the general public.

For businesses throughout Illinois, Progent can provide convenient, fast, and cost-effective remote help from Cisco CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified networking experts who are awarded this top-level classification only as a result of thorough examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle the most complex problems surrounding network architecture, deployment, optimization, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE professionals work closely with Cisco engineers in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing fixes or acquiring software updates to correct anomalies. Progent can provide fast remote access to a CCIE so you are able to get timely assistance for complex network problems that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the scope of your local IT support resources. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can link to your network via advanced online connectivity tools in order to provide quick and cost-effective analysis and repair of critical network problems.
