What Makes Support from a Cisco CCIE So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a world-class networking specialist who qualifies for this elite certification by completing rigorous examinations supervised by Cisco. A CCIE can handle the most complex issues surrounding network interfacing, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals operate closely with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco IOS utilities and developing temporary alternatives or finding program updates to correct bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large corporations or national ISPs, and so their services are not readily accessible to small businesses.

For businesses in Alabama, Progent can provide convenient, quick, and affordable online help from Cisco authorized CCIE support professionals. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite networking gurus who are awarded this prestigious certification only as a result of thorough testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve even the most complicated problems associated with network design, integration, optimization, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE consultants work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS software and developing fixes or obtaining patches to resolve anomalies. Progent can provide fast remote support from a CCIE so you are able to get timely assistance for complex network problems that are affecting business productivity but are outside the scope of your usual IT support resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can access your network via advanced remote connectivity technology in order to deliver quick and affordable diagnosis and repair of urgent network difficulties.
