Small office IT networks situated in Illinois can now have instant remote help from a Cisco qualified CCIE network expert to assist with critical problems affecting their network. Progent maintains the largest group of CCIE support professionals available remotely of any nationwide support organization in the U.S. The cost is reasonable, charges are per minute, engagement is fast, and support is world class.

In case your Illinois organization is located away from larger metropolitan areas including Chicago, Aurora, Rockford, or Naperville, help from qualified CCIE experts is often difficult to find when there's a crisis. This can cause lost revenue for your company. By utilizing Progent's remote support, you can get in touch with a Cisco certified CCIE professional who can offer the help to get your system on line.

Why is Being a Cisco CCIE So Significant?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level network professional who qualifies for this ultimate certification by passing tough examinations supervised by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can tackle even the most complicated issues involving network deployment, repair, and optimization. Progentís CCIEs operate directly with Cisco's internal staff in analyzing problems with Cisco IOS software and developing temporary alternatives or downloading software patches to correct bugs. Most CCIEs work for large corporations or national Internet providers, and so their help is not easily available to the general public.

For small and midsize organizations anywhere in Illinois, Progent can provide convenient, quick, and cost-effective remote access to Cisco authorized CCIE consultants. CCIEs are highly-qualified networking gurus who are awarded this top-level classification only through strenuous examination by Cisco. CCIEs can handle the most complicated issues surrounding network architecture, setup, performance, repair, and service. Progentís CCIE consultants work intimately with Cisco in-house staff in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS platform and developing workarounds or obtaining patches to correct anomalies. Progent can provide prompt remote access to a CCIE so you can receive timely help for tough network issues that are impacting worker productivity but are outside the scope of your usual IT support providers. Progent's CCIE consulting experts can link to your environment via advanced online support technology in order to provide rapid and affordable diagnosis and remediation of critical network problems.
