Small company networks located throughout the state of South Dakota can now have instant phone-based contact with a Cisco authorized CCIE network system specialist to help with urgent problems affecting their network. Progent offers the services of the most extensive group of CCIE consultants available remotely of any nationwide support firm in the country. The cost is affordable, charges are by the minute, sign-up is immediate, and support is world class.

If your South Dakota small business is located away from larger metropolitan areas including Sioux Falls, Rapid City, or Aberdeen, support from Cisco certified CCIE experts could be unavailable during a crisis. This could mean a drop in income for your company. By utilizing Progent, you can get in touch with a CCIE engineer ready to provide the assistance to keep your computer network operating.

What Makes Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A CCIE is a world-class infrastructure specialist who achieves this prestigious title by passing strenuous testing given by Cisco. A CCIE can tackle even the most complex issues associated with computer network integration, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists work directly with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying anomalies with Cisco IOS software and coming up with workarounds or downloading program patches to fix problems. Most CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide ISPs, and so their help is not easily accessible to the general public.

For organizations anywhere in South Dakota, Progent offers easy, quick, and cost-effective remote help from Cisco certified CCIE consultants. CCIEs are highly-qualified network experts who are awarded this top-level classification only after intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complex issues surrounding network architecture, configuration, performance, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE consultants work intimately with Cisco engineers in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing fixes or acquiring patches to resolve anomalies. Progent offers fast remote response from a CCIE so that you can get timely assistance for complex network issues that are affecting worker productivity but are outside the expertise of your usual network support resources. Progent's CCIE consulting experts can link to your environment using advanced online support technology to provide quick and cost-effective analysis and remediation of urgent network difficulties.

Progent can also help you to use network management applications to monitor and categorize network data to enable traffic shaping, which allows you to program Cisco routers to enforce different throughput constraints on certain types of processes based on the priorities you specify. By buffering and sorting excess packets that exceed your contracted rates, and by giving priority to business-critical applications, traffic shaping can prevent service provider excess usage charges from spinning out of reach and/or eliminate lost worker productivity resulting from indiscriminate policing of your network traffic volume limits during periods of heavy demand.
