  • Qualified Cisco Infrastructure Engineers
    The CCIE certification is the top recognition for networking professionals, and certifies an individual's technical skills at the master level. CCIEs can handle even the most challenging issues associated with network planning, deployment, management, security, and repair. CCIEs work on a privileged basis with Cisco's in-house engineers in isolating problems with IOS Software network administration tools and coming up with alternate approaches or installing software updates to correct problems. CCIEs represent an exceptional value because their deep expertise allows them to solve the most intractable problems quickly. In many instances, less seasoned consultants can struggle with identical tasks for hours or even days.

    Progent is among the few consulting organizations that makes CCIEs available to assist small and mid-size companies. Progent offers fast contact with a CCIE by phone so that you can get timely support for urgent network problems that are hurting worker productivity but are outside the experience of your local IT maintenance providers.
