This can cause a drop in income for your business. By utilizing Progent, you have access to a Cisco CCIE engineer who can offer the expertise to keep your network operating.

Why is Access to a Cisco CCIE So Significant?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level infrastructure specialist who qualifies for this elite recognition only after tough testing given by Cisco. A CCIE can tackle even the most complicated problems involving computer network integration, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs work freely with Cisco's in-house staff in analyzing issues with Cisco IOS software and developing temporary alternatives or obtaining program patches to resolve problems. Most CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide ISPs, and so their services are not readily accessible to small businesses.

For businesses in Massachusetts, Progent offers easy, quick, and cost-effective remote access to Cisco certified CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite network experts who earn this prestigious classification only as a result of strenuous testing by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complex problems surrounding network design, integration, performance, repair, and support. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing fixes or obtaining patches to resolve anomalies. Progent can provide prompt online access to a CCIE so you are able to get immediate help for tough network issues that are affecting business efficiency but are outside the scope of your usual IT service resources. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can link to your network via advanced online connectivity tools in order to deliver rapid and affordable diagnosis and remediation of critical network problems.
