Small business IT networks situated within the state of Minnesota can now have instant remote access to a Cisco qualified CCIE network system professional to help with complex issues affecting your computer network. Progent retains the most extensive team of CCIE network support professionals accessible by phone of any independent service firm in the United States. The cost is affordable, charges are per minute, engagement is immediate, and service is unbeatable.

If your Minnesota small business is beyond major urban neighborhoods like Minneapolis, St. Paul, Rochester, Duluth, or Bloomington, support from Cisco certified CCIE experts is often difficult to find during a network crash. This could mean lost revenue for your company. By utilizing Progent, you have access to a Cisco CCIE professional ready to deliver the expertise to get your system on line.

Why is Support from a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A Cisco CCIE is a world-class networking professional who earns this ultimate recognition by completing rigorous examinations supervised by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can handle even the most sophisticated problems involving network integration, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs communicate directly with Cisco's internal staff in identifying anomalies with IOS software and coming up with temporary alternatives or finding software patches to correct bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or nationwide Internet providers, and so their help is not easily accessible to the general public.

For companies in Minnesota, Progent offers easy, fast, and cost-effective online access to Cisco CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite networking experts who are awarded this top-level certification only through strenuous testing by Cisco. CCIEs can handle the most complicated problems associated with network design, setup, capacity, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE experts work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS software and devising fixes or obtaining software updates to resolve anomalies. Progent offers fast remote access to a CCIE so you are able to receive timely help for tough network issues that are affecting worker efficiency but are beyond the scope of your local IT service providers. Progent's CCIE consulting professionals can access your environment via advanced remote support technology to deliver rapid and cost-effective diagnosis and remediation of urgent network problems.
