In case your Oregon office is beyond larger urban areas including Portland, Salem, Eugene, Gresham, or Beaverton, contact with qualified CCIE engineers may be hard to get during a crisis. This can result in lost productivity for your business. By utilizing Progent's online services, you have access to a CCIE engineer who can provide the expertise to get your information system running.

What Makes Being a Cisco CCIE So Important?
A CCIE is a world-class infrastructure professional who earns this ultimate title only after thorough testing given by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can deal with the most complicated problems involving computer network deployment, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists operate freely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying problems with IOS software and coming up with workarounds or downloading software updates to correct bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their services are not readily available to small businesses.

For small and midsize businesses in Oregon, Progent offers easy, fast, and cost-effective online help from Cisco authorized CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite networking subject matter experts who are awarded this top-level certification only through strenuous testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle even the most complex problems surrounding network architecture, deployment, optimization, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or acquiring patches to resolve anomalies. Progent offers fast online support from a CCIE so that you are able to receive immediate help for tough network issues that are affecting business efficiency but are outside the scope of your local IT support resources. Progent's CCIE support professionals can link to your environment via advanced remote connectivity tools to provide rapid and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent network difficulties.

By buffering and queuing excess packets above your committed rates, and by giving preference to business-critical processes, traffic shaping can keep service provider excess usage penalties from spinning out of reach and/or eliminate lost worker productivity resulting from brute force policing of your network bandwidth limits during periods of heavy demand.
