This can result in a drop in productivity for your company. By calling Progent's remote support, you have access to a CCIE consultant who can deliver the expertise to keep your system operating.

What Makes Being a Cisco CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level networking specialist who qualifies for this elite certification by passing thorough examinations administered by Cisco. A CCIE can handle even the most complicated issues involving computer network interfacing, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists work directly with Cisco's internal staff in analyzing issues with Cisco IOS software and creating workarounds or finding program patches to resolve bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not readily accessible to the general public.

For small and midsize companies anywhere in Alaska, Progent offers easy, quick, and cost-effective remote help from Cisco authorized CCIE support professionals. CCIEs are highly-qualified network subject matter experts who are awarded this prestigious certification only after strenuous testing by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complex issues associated with network architecture, configuration, capacity, repair, and service. Progentís CCIE professionals work intimately with Cisco engineers in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS platform and devising fixes or acquiring patches to resolve problems. Progent offers fast remote support from a CCIE so that you can get timely assistance for complex network problems that are impacting business productivity but are beyond the expertise of your local IT support resources. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can link to your environment via advanced online support technology in order to deliver quick and cost-effective analysis and repair of critical network problems.
