Small business IT networks located within the state of South Dakota can get immediate online access to a Cisco authorized CCIE network system specialist to help with critical issues involving your computer network. Progent retains the most extensive group of CCIE consultants available by phone of any nationwide support firm in the United States. The cost is reasonable, billing is by the minute, engagement is fast, and support is world class.

If your South Dakota organization is outside of major urban areas like Sioux Falls, Rapid City, or Aberdeen, support from Cisco certified CCIE experts is often difficult to find when there's an emergency. This can result in a drop in revenue for your company. By utilizing Progent's remote support, you have access to a CCIE consultant who can deliver the expertise to get your system on line.

Why is Support from a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE is a top-level infrastructure engineer who achieves this elite recognition by completing strenuous testing given by Cisco. CCIEs can deal with even the most complex issues associated with computer network integration, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs operate freely with Cisco's in-house staff in analyzing problems with IOS utilities and creating workarounds or downloading program patches to fix bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily accessible to the general public.

For small and midsize companies in South Dakota, Progent offers convenient, quick, and economical remote access to Cisco authorized CCIE support professionals. CCIEs are recognized networking experts who earn this top-level classification only through intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle the most complex issues surrounding network architecture, configuration, optimization, repair, and support. Progentís CCIE consultants work closely with Cisco engineers in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS software and devising workarounds or acquiring patches to resolve problems. Progent can provide fast online support from a CCIE so you are able to receive immediate help for complex network problems that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the expertise of your usual IT service resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can link to your network using advanced online connectivity technology in order to deliver quick and cost-effective diagnosis and remediation of critical network problems.
