Why is Being a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a world-class infrastructure specialist who achieves this elite recognition by passing tough examinations supervised by Cisco. A CCIE can tackle even the most sophisticated issues associated with network interfacing, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs work freely with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying issues with Cisco IOS software and creating temporary alternatives or downloading program patches to fix bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not readily available to the general public.

For small and midsize companies throughout Michigan, Progent can provide easy, fast, and affordable remote help from Cisco CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized network subject matter experts who are awarded this prestigious classification only through strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle the most complicated problems surrounding network planning, deployment, capacity, repair, and service. Progentís CCIE professionals work closely with Cisco engineers in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS platform and developing fixes or acquiring patches to correct anomalies. Progent can provide prompt remote access to a CCIE so that you are able to get immediate help for complex network issues that are affecting worker productivity but are beyond the scope of your local IT support resources. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can link to your environment via advanced remote support technology in order to provide quick and cost-effective analysis and repair of urgent network problems.
