Small business IT networks situated throughout the state of Illinois can now have instant online access to a Cisco qualified CCIE network system engineer to resolve critical problems that threaten their computer network. Progent retains the most extensive team of CCIE support professionals accessible by phone of any nationwide support firm in the country. The cost is affordable, billing is per minute, sign-up is immediate, and service is unbeatable.

If your Illinois company is located beyond larger urban areas such as Chicago, Aurora, Rockford, or Naperville, help from Cisco certified CCIE engineers is often unavailable when there's a network crash. This can result in a loss of productivity for your business. By contacting Progent's online services, you have access to a Cisco CCIE engineer who can deliver the help to get your information system on line.

What Makes Support from a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A Cisco CCIE is a top-level network specialist who achieves this ultimate recognition by passing rigorous testing supervised by Cisco. A CCIE can tackle the most complicated problems involving network deployment, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-certified support specialists operate closely with Cisco's in-house staff in analyzing anomalies with IOS software and creating workarounds or finding program updates to correct problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large enterprises or nationwide ISPs, and so their skills are not easily accessible to small businesses.

For organizations throughout Illinois, Progent offers convenient, quick, and economical remote help from Cisco authorized CCIE engineers. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are elite networking experts who are awarded this prestigious classification only through thorough examination by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complicated issues surrounding network topology, integration, performance, repair, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE professionals work intimately with Cisco engineers in analyzing issues with Cisco's IOS software and devising fixes or acquiring patches to correct problems. Progent can provide prompt online support from a CCIE so that you are able to receive timely assistance for tough network problems that are impacting worker efficiency but are outside the scope of your usual IT support resources. Progent's CCIE support experts can access your network via advanced online support tools to provide quick and cost-effective analysis and repair of urgent network problems.
