  • Qualified Cisco CCIE Consultants
    The CCIE credential is the premier recognition for network professionals, and certifies an individual's networking skills at the expert level. CCIEs can handle even the most difficult problems surrounding network planning, deployment, management, security, and repair. CCIEs work on a privileged basis with Cisco's internal support staff in identifying problems with IOS Software network administration utilities and developing alternate approaches or installing software updates to fix problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value because their depth of experience allows them to fix the most complex problems rapidly. In many instances, less qualified consultants can wrestle with the same problems for hours or days.

    Progent is one of the few consulting organizations that makes CCIEs accessible to support small and medium sized businesses. Progent offers quick contact with a CCIE by telephone so that you can receive timely help for complex network issues that are impacting worker efficiency but are outside the scope of your ordinary network support personnel.
