Small office computer networks located in the state of Arizona can now have instant phone-based help from a Cisco authorized CCIE infrastructure consultant to assist with complex problems involving their IT network.

Why is Support from a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a world-class network specialist who achieves this elite certification only after rigorous testing given by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can deal with the most complicated issues involving network deployment, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs work freely with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying anomalies with IOS utilities and coming up with workarounds or obtaining program updates to fix problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or national Internet providers, and so their skills are not readily accessible to small businesses.

For organizations in Arizona, Progent offers convenient, fast, and economical online help from Cisco certified CCIE support professionals. CCIEs are highly-qualified network subject matter experts who earn this prestigious certification only as a result of strenuous testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to resolve the most complex issues surrounding network design, setup, capacity, repair, and support. Progentís CCIE experts cooperate intimately with Cisco engineers in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS platform and devising workarounds or obtaining software updates to resolve problems. Progent offers prompt remote support from a CCIE so that you can get timely assistance for tough network issues that are impacting worker efficiency but are outside the scope of your usual network support resources. Progent's CCIE support professionals can access your network using state-of-the-art online connectivity technology in order to deliver rapid and affordable analysis and remediation of critical network difficulties.
