Small company networks situated within Illinois can now have immediate phone-based help from a Cisco certified CCIE infrastructure engineer to help with complex problems affecting your network. Progent retains the most extensive group of CCIE network consulting experts available by phone of any independent service firm in the country. Rates are reasonable, billing is per minute, engagement is immediate, and support is world class.

If your Illinois small business is outside of larger urban neighborhoods such as Chicago, Aurora, Rockford, or Naperville, contact with authorized CCIE experts could be hard to get when there's a crisis. This can cause lost income for your business. By contacting Progent's remote support, you can get in touch with a Cisco certified CCIE professional ready to deliver the assistance to keep your computer network running.

Why is Access to a CCIE-certified Consultant So Significant?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level infrastructure engineer who qualifies for this ultimate certification only after tough examinations administered by Cisco. A CCIE can deal with the most complex issues associated with computer network deployment, troubleshooting, and optimization. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals operate closely with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying issues with IOS utilities and coming up with temporary alternatives or finding program patches to resolve bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their services are not readily accessible to small businesses.

For companies throughout Illinois, Progent can provide convenient, fast, and affordable online help from Cisco certified CCIE support professionals. CCIEs are highly-qualified network subject matter experts who are awarded this prestigious classification only through intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle even the most complex issues surrounding network topology, deployment, capacity, repair, and support. Progentís CCIE professionals work intimately with Cisco engineers in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS platform and devising workarounds or obtaining patches to correct problems. Progent can provide fast online response from a CCIE so that you can get immediate help for complex network issues that are affecting worker efficiency but are beyond the expertise of your local IT service providers. Progent's CCIE consulting professionals can link to your environment via state-of-the-art remote connectivity tools in order to provide quick and affordable analysis and remediation of urgent network difficulties.
