What Makes Access to a Cisco CCIE So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level infrastructure expert who earns this ultimate certification by passing strenuous testing supervised by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can handle the most complicated issues surrounding network interfacing, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals operate directly with Cisco's in-house staff in analyzing issues with IOS utilities and coming up with temporary alternatives or obtaining software patches to fix bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or nationwide ISPs, and so their skills are not readily available to the general public.

For businesses throughout Illinois, Progent offers convenient, quick, and economical remote help from Cisco certified CCIE consultants. CCIEs are recognized network subject matter experts who are awarded this prestigious certification only through thorough examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complex problems associated with network design, setup, performance, repair, and support. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate closely with Cisco engineers in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS platform and devising workarounds or acquiring patches to resolve problems. Progent can provide prompt remote access to a CCIE so you are able to get timely assistance for tough network issues that are impacting worker productivity but are beyond the scope of your usual IT service resources. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can access your network using advanced online connectivity tools to provide rapid and cost-effective diagnosis and remediation of urgent network difficulties.
