This could mean a loss of income for your company. By contacting Progent, you have access to a CCIE consultant who can provide the assistance to get your network running.

Why is Support from a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level networking specialist who qualifies for this elite title only after tough testing administered by Cisco. A CCIE can deal with the most complex issues involving computer network interfacing, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists communicate closely with Cisco's internal engineers in analyzing anomalies with IOS utilities and creating workarounds or obtaining program patches to correct problems. Most CCIEs work for large enterprises or nationwide ISPs, and so their skills are not easily available to small businesses.

For businesses throughout Illinois, Progent offers easy, fast, and affordable remote help from Cisco certified CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite network gurus who are awarded this top-level classification only through intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complex problems associated with network architecture, integration, capacity, repair, and service. Progentís CCIE professionals work closely with Cisco engineers in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS software and devising fixes or acquiring software updates to correct problems. Progent offers prompt remote access to a CCIE so you can get timely help for complex network problems that are affecting business efficiency but are beyond the scope of your usual IT service resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can access your environment via advanced online support tools to provide rapid and affordable diagnosis and remediation of critical network difficulties.
