Why is Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE is a world-class infrastructure expert who earns this prestigious title only after strenuous testing supervised by Cisco. CCIEs can tackle the most sophisticated issues surrounding network deployment, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals operate closely with Cisco's in-house staff in analyzing anomalies with Cisco IOS utilities and creating temporary alternatives or downloading software updates to resolve bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their services are not easily accessible to the general public.

CCIEs are highly-qualified network gurus who are awarded this prestigious certification only after strenuous testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle the most complicated problems associated with network planning, implementation, performance, repair, and support. Progentís CCIE professionals work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and devising workarounds or obtaining patches to resolve anomalies.

Progent's CCIE consulting experts can link to your environment via advanced online connectivity tools to deliver rapid and affordable diagnosis and remediation of critical network problems.
