What Makes Being a Cisco CCIE So Significant?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level infrastructure engineer who qualifies for this elite recognition by completing tough testing supervised by Cisco. A CCIE can deal with even the most complex problems associated with computer network interfacing, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs communicate directly with Cisco's internal staff in analyzing problems with Cisco IOS utilities and coming up with temporary alternatives or downloading software updates to correct problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their help is not easily available to the general public.

For businesses in Alabama, Progent can provide easy, quick, and affordable remote access to Cisco certified CCIE consultants. CCIEs are recognized network subject matter experts who earn this prestigious classification only after intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complex issues surrounding network planning, setup, performance, repair, and service. Progentís CCIE professionals work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or obtaining patches to correct problems. Progent can provide prompt remote response from a CCIE so that you are able to get timely assistance for complex network problems that are affecting worker productivity but are outside the expertise of your usual IT service providers. Progent's CCIE consulting experts can link to your network using state-of-the-art online connectivity tools in order to provide rapid and affordable analysis and repair of critical network problems.
