Small company networks situated throughout Maryland can rely on immediate phone-based access to a Cisco certified CCIE network system consultant to assist with the toughest issues that threaten your IT network. Progent maintains the largest team of Cisco CCIE consultants accessible remotely of any independent service firm in the United States. Rates are competitive, billing is per minute, engagement is fast, and support is world class.

If your Maryland office is located beyond larger urban neighborhoods such as Baltimore, Columbia, Silver Spring, or Dundalk, help from authorized CCIE experts is often unavailable when there's a network crash. This could mean lost income for your business. By calling Progent, you have access to a CCIE engineer ready to offer the assistance to keep your computer network on line.

Why is Being a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A CCIE is a top-level infrastructure engineer who achieves this prestigious title by completing rigorous testing given by Cisco. A CCIE can tackle even the most sophisticated issues involving computer network interfacing, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs communicate closely with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying issues with Cisco IOS software and creating workarounds or finding program patches to fix bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their help is not readily available to the general public.

For small and midsize companies anywhere in Maryland, Progent can provide easy, quick, and affordable online help from Cisco authorized CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized network gurus who earn this prestigious classification only as a result of intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs can handle the most complicated issues associated with network design, deployment, optimization, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate intimately with Cisco engineers in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and devising fixes or acquiring software updates to correct anomalies. Progent can provide fast online access to a CCIE so you are able to receive immediate help for complex network issues that are impacting business efficiency but are outside the scope of your usual IT service providers. Progent's CCIE support experts can link to your network using advanced online support tools to deliver rapid and cost-effective analysis and repair of critical network problems.
