What Makes Being a CCIE-certified Consultant So Significant?
A CCIE is a top-level infrastructure professional who earns this ultimate title by passing rigorous testing administered by Cisco. CCIEs can deal with the most complicated issues involving network interfacing, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals work freely with Cisco's in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco IOS software and developing temporary alternatives or finding software patches to resolve bugs. Most CCIEs work for large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily available to small businesses.

For small and midsize organizations in Illinois, Progent can provide easy, fast, and economical remote access to Cisco authorized CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified networking gurus who earn this top-level certification only as a result of intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complex problems associated with network architecture, configuration, capacity, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate intimately with Cisco engineers in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or obtaining patches to correct anomalies. Progent can provide fast online response from a CCIE so that you are able to get timely help for tough network problems that are affecting business productivity but are outside the scope of your local network support providers. Progent's CCIE support professionals can link to your network via state-of-the-art online support technology in order to provide rapid and cost-effective diagnosis and repair of urgent network difficulties.
