What Makes Access to a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class networking expert who achieves this ultimate title only after thorough examinations given by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can tackle the most complicated problems involving computer network interfacing, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs work freely with Cisco's internal staff in analyzing anomalies with Cisco IOS utilities and developing temporary alternatives or downloading program patches to resolve problems. Most CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not readily accessible to small businesses.

For small and midsize organizations in Illinois, Progent can provide convenient, fast, and economical remote help from Cisco CCIE engineers. CCIEs are elite networking gurus who earn this top-level classification only through intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complicated problems surrounding network architecture, integration, optimization, repair, and support. Progentís CCIE experts work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or obtaining patches to resolve problems. Progent can provide fast online response from a CCIE so you are able to get timely assistance for tough network problems that are affecting business productivity but are beyond the expertise of your usual IT support providers. Progent's CCIE support engineers can access your network via state-of-the-art online support tools to deliver quick and affordable analysis and repair of critical network difficulties.
