Small office computer networks located in the state of Maryland can now have instant phone-based access to a Cisco qualified CCIE network engineer to resolve urgent problems affecting their network. Progent offers the services of the largest group of CCIE support professionals available by phone of any nationwide service firm in the country. Rates are competitive, charges are by the minute, engagement is immediate, and service is world class.

If your Maryland small business is located away from major urban neighborhoods including Baltimore, Columbia, Silver Spring, or Dundalk, help from Cisco certified CCIE experts is often hard to get when there's an emergency. This could mean lost income for your company. By contacting Progent, you have access to a CCIE engineer who can provide the expertise to keep your network operating.

Why is Being a Cisco CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE is a top-level networking professional who achieves this ultimate title only after thorough examinations administered by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can deal with even the most complicated issues surrounding network interfacing, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals work closely with Cisco's in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco IOS utilities and coming up with temporary alternatives or obtaining program updates to correct problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their services are not easily accessible to small businesses.

For small and midsize businesses anywhere in Maryland, Progent offers easy, fast, and cost-effective remote access to Cisco certified CCIE support professionals. CCIEs are elite network gurus who are awarded this top-level certification only through intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve even the most complex issues associated with network architecture, integration, performance, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or acquiring patches to correct anomalies. Progent can provide prompt remote support from a CCIE so that you are able to receive timely assistance for complex network issues that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the scope of your local network service providers. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can access your network using advanced online connectivity technology to deliver rapid and affordable diagnosis and repair of urgent network difficulties.

By buffering and queuing data packets that exceed your contracted rates, and by giving priority to the most important processes, traffic shaping can keep service provider excess usage penalties from spinning out of reach and/or avoid lost productivity resulting from brute force enforcement of your network traffic volume restrictions during periods of heavy demand.
