Small office IT networks situated throughout the state of Maine can now have instant online access to a Cisco qualified CCIE network engineer to help with urgent problems affecting their computer network. Progent maintains the most extensive group of CCIE support professionals available remotely of any independent service firm in the U.S. The cost is competitive, charges are by the minute, engagement is fast, and service is unbeatable.

If your Maine organization is located beyond larger urban areas including Portland, Lewiston, or Bangor, help from Cisco certified CCIE engineers may be difficult to find when there's an emergency. This can cause a loss of income for your company. By utilizing Progent, you can get in touch with a Cisco certified CCIE consultant who can offer the assistance to get your network operating.

What Makes Support from a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a world-class networking professional who achieves this elite title by passing strenuous testing given by Cisco. CCIEs can deal with even the most complicated issues associated with computer network interfacing, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs communicate closely with Cisco's internal staff in analyzing problems with IOS software and coming up with workarounds or finding program patches to correct bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national ISPs, and so their help is not readily accessible to small businesses.

For companies throughout Maine, Progent can provide convenient, fast, and cost-effective online help from Cisco CCIE consultants. CCIEs are highly-qualified network subject matter experts who earn this top-level certification only after intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve even the most complex problems surrounding network planning, setup, capacity, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE consultants work closely with Cisco engineers in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS platform and devising workarounds or obtaining patches to correct anomalies. Progent can provide fast remote response from a CCIE so that you can receive timely help for tough network problems that are impacting worker productivity but are beyond the expertise of your usual IT support providers. Progent's CCIE support professionals can access your network via advanced remote support technology to provide quick and cost-effective analysis and repair of urgent network difficulties.
