This can result in a drop in productivity for your business. By utilizing Progent's online services, you can get in touch with a CCIE professional who can provide the assistance to get your information system running.

What Makes Support from a CCIE-certified Consultant So Significant?
A CCIE is a world-class networking engineer who achieves this elite recognition by completing thorough testing administered by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can tackle the most complicated problems associated with computer network deployment, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals communicate directly with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying problems with IOS software and coming up with temporary alternatives or obtaining software patches to correct bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their services are not easily available to the general public.

For small and midsize businesses in Louisiana, Progent can provide easy, fast, and economical remote help from Cisco certified CCIE consultants. CCIEs are highly-qualified network subject matter experts who are awarded this prestigious classification only after strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve the most complicated issues associated with network design, deployment, performance, repair, and service. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or obtaining patches to correct anomalies. Progent offers prompt remote access to a CCIE so that you are able to receive timely assistance for tough network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are outside the expertise of your local network support resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can link to your network via state-of-the-art online support technology in order to provide quick and cost-effective diagnosis and repair of critical network problems.
