What Makes Access to a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level infrastructure specialist who achieves this ultimate certification by passing thorough testing given by Cisco. CCIEs can tackle the most sophisticated issues involving network interfacing, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs communicate directly with Cisco's in-house engineers in analyzing problems with Cisco IOS utilities and developing temporary alternatives or obtaining program updates to fix bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or nationwide Internet providers, and so their services are not readily available to the general public.

For small and midsize organizations anywhere in Alaska, Progent can provide convenient, quick, and cost-effective online help from Cisco certified CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified network gurus who are awarded this prestigious classification only as a result of intense examination by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve even the most complex issues surrounding network design, configuration, capacity, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE professionals cooperate closely with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing fixes or acquiring software updates to resolve anomalies. Progent offers prompt remote support from a CCIE so you are able to receive timely help for tough network issues that are impacting business productivity but are beyond the scope of your local network support providers. Progent's CCIE support professionals can link to your environment via advanced remote connectivity tools to provide rapid and affordable analysis and repair of urgent network difficulties.
