Small company IT networks located within the state of South Dakota can now have immediate phone-based access to a Cisco certified CCIE network professional to assist with the toughest problems that threaten your IT network. Progent retains the most extensive group of CCIE consultants available by phone of any nationwide support firm in the United States. Rates are reasonable, charges are per minute, sign-up is fast, and support is unbeatable.

In case your South Dakota business is based away from larger metropolitan areas like Sioux Falls, Rapid City, or Aberdeen, access to authorized CCIE engineers may be difficult to find during an emergency. This can result in lost income for your business. By calling Progent, you can get in touch with a CCIE engineer ready to deliver the assistance to keep your information system running.

Why is Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level networking expert who qualifies for this elite certification only after tough testing given by Cisco. A CCIE can handle even the most complicated problems associated with network deployment, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs communicate closely with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying problems with Cisco IOS utilities and developing workarounds or obtaining software patches to correct bugs. Most CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily accessible to the general public.

For small and midsize organizations in South Dakota, Progent offers convenient, quick, and affordable online help from Cisco certified CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized network subject matter experts who are awarded this prestigious classification only after thorough examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve the most complex problems associated with network topology, setup, performance, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate closely with Cisco engineers in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS software and developing fixes or obtaining software updates to correct problems. Progent offers prompt online access to a CCIE so that you are able to get immediate assistance for tough network problems that are affecting business productivity but are beyond the expertise of your local IT support resources. Progent's CCIE consulting professionals can link to your network via advanced online support tools in order to deliver rapid and cost-effective diagnosis and remediation of critical network problems.
