If your Washington small business is based away from major metropolitan areas like Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma, Bellevue, or Vancouver, help from qualified CCIE experts may be hard to get when there's a network crash.

By utilizing Progent's online services, you have access to a Cisco CCIE engineer ready to deliver the help to keep your information system operating.

What Makes Access to a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level network specialist who achieves this elite certification only after rigorous examinations administered by Cisco. A CCIE can handle even the most sophisticated issues surrounding network integration, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs communicate directly with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying issues with IOS utilities and creating temporary alternatives or obtaining program updates to fix problems. Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not easily accessible to small businesses.

For small and midsize businesses throughout Washington, Progent offers convenient, fast, and economical online access to Cisco authorized CCIE engineers. CCIEs are elite networking gurus who are awarded this top-level certification only after thorough testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle the most complex problems surrounding network topology, integration, optimization, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS software and devising fixes or obtaining patches to resolve problems. Progent can provide prompt remote access to a CCIE so that you are able to receive timely assistance for complex network issues that are impacting worker efficiency but are beyond the expertise of your usual IT service providers. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can access your network via advanced online support technology in order to provide rapid and cost-effective diagnosis and remediation of urgent network difficulties.
