What Makes Being a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level infrastructure specialist who earns this ultimate recognition by passing thorough examinations given by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can tackle even the most complex issues involving network deployment, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals communicate directly with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying problems with IOS software and developing temporary alternatives or obtaining program patches to resolve problems. Most CCIEs work for large corporations or nationwide Internet providers, and so their services are not easily accessible to small businesses.

For companies in Alaska, Progent can provide convenient, quick, and affordable remote help from Cisco authorized CCIE consultants. CCIEs are recognized networking subject matter experts who are awarded this prestigious classification only as a result of strenuous examination by Cisco.

Progentís CCIE professionals work closely with Cisco engineers in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS platform and devising workarounds or acquiring patches to resolve problems. Progent can provide fast remote support from a CCIE so you can get immediate help for complex network issues 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 via advanced online connectivity tools to deliver quick and affordable analysis and repair of critical network problems.
