Small office IT networks located in the state of Iowa can now have immediate phone-based access to a Cisco qualified CCIE network specialist to resolve critical issues involving your IT network. Progent maintains the most extensive group of Cisco CCIE support professionals accessible by phone of any nationwide service firm in the country. The cost is affordable, billing is by the minute, engagement is quick, and service is world class.

In case your Iowa company is based away from major urban neighborhoods such as Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, or Sioux City, help from Cisco certified CCIE experts is often difficult to find when there's a crisis. This can result in a drop in productivity for your business. By utilizing Progent's remote support, you can get in touch with a Cisco certified CCIE engineer ready to deliver the help to get your network operating.

Why is Access to a Cisco CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE is a world-class infrastructure professional who achieves this elite certification by completing strenuous testing administered by Cisco. A CCIE can deal with the most sophisticated issues involving network integration, repair, and configuration. Progent’s CCIE-certified support specialists communicate freely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying problems with Cisco IOS software and developing temporary alternatives or obtaining software patches to correct problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide ISPs, and so their help is not easily available to small businesses.

For companies in Iowa, Progent offers convenient, quick, and affordable remote help from Cisco certified CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified networking subject matter experts who are awarded this top-level classification only after thorough testing by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complicated issues associated with network planning, deployment, optimization, repair, and service. Progent’s CCIE consultants cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS platform and devising fixes or acquiring patches to correct anomalies. Progent offers prompt online support from a CCIE so that you can get immediate assistance for complex network problems that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the expertise of your local IT service resources. Progent's CCIE support professionals can link to your environment via state-of-the-art online support tools to deliver rapid and cost-effective analysis and remediation of critical network difficulties.

Progent can also help you to use network management tools to monitor and categorize network data to enable traffic shaping, which allows you to set up routers to impose a variety of bandwidth constraints on certain types of processes based on the priorities you assign. By storing and queuing excess packets above your committed volume, and by giving priority to the most important applications, traffic shaping can prevent service provider overage charges from spiraling out of reach and/or avoid gaps in worker productivity resulting from indiscriminate policing of your network traffic volume restrictions during periods of heavy demand.
