    The CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) credential is the premier recognition for networking professionals, and indicates a person's networking knowledge at the master level. CCIEs can handle even the most challenging issues associated with network planning, deployment, administration, protection, and repair. CCIEs operate on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house support staff in isolating anomalies with Cisco IOS Software network management tools and coming up with workarounds or installing software updates to fix problems. CCIEs represent an excellent value because their deep expertise enables them to resolve the most intractable problems rapidly. In common cases, less qualified engineers can wrestle with identical tasks for hours or even days.

    Progent is among the few service organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to support small and medium sized companies. Progent offers quick access to a CCIE by telephone so that you can receive immediate support for urgent network problems that are hurting business productivity but are beyond the experience of your ordinary IT maintenance personnel.
