Why is Being a Cisco CCIE So Significant?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class network specialist who qualifies for this elite recognition by passing tough testing supervised by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can handle even the most complex problems involving computer network deployment, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs communicate closely with Cisco's in-house staff in analyzing anomalies with Cisco IOS utilities and creating workarounds or downloading software updates to correct bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their help is not readily available to the general public.

For small and midsize companies in Illinois, Progent can provide easy, quick, and economical online access to Cisco authorized CCIE consultants. CCIEs are elite networking gurus who earn this top-level classification only after intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve even the most complex issues surrounding network topology, deployment, capacity, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE professionals work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or acquiring patches to resolve problems. Progent can provide prompt remote access to a CCIE so that you are able to receive timely help for complex network problems that are affecting business efficiency but are beyond the scope of your local IT service providers. Progent's CCIE support experts can link to your environment using state-of-the-art online connectivity technology in order to provide quick and affordable analysis and remediation of critical network difficulties.
