Small business computer networks located anywhere in the state of Iowa can now have immediate remote contact with a Cisco qualified CCIE network system specialist to resolve complex problems that threaten your IT network. Progent maintains the most extensive group of CCIE consulting experts accessible remotely of any independent service organization in the U.S. Rates are reasonable, billing is by the minute, sign-up is quick, and support is unbeatable.

In case your Iowa small business is situated away from larger metropolitan areas such as Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, or Sioux City, support from qualified CCIE experts is often unavailable when there's a network crash. This could mean lost productivity for your company. By contacting Progent, you have access to a Cisco CCIE consultant who can deliver the help to get your information system running.

Why is Support from a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level network engineer who earns this ultimate recognition by completing tough testing given by Cisco. CCIE-certified consultants can handle the most sophisticated issues surrounding computer network deployment, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals operate freely with Cisco's in-house staff in identifying anomalies with IOS software and developing workarounds or finding program updates to resolve bugs. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large corporations or nationwide ISPs, and so their skills are not easily accessible to the general public.

For small and midsize businesses in Iowa, Progent offers easy, quick, and economical remote access to Cisco CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are highly-qualified networking experts who earn this top-level certification only as a result of intense testing by Cisco. CCIEs can resolve the most complicated issues surrounding network architecture, implementation, performance, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE consultants cooperate intimately with Cisco engineers in analyzing problems with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or obtaining patches to correct problems. Progent can provide fast online response from a CCIE so you can get timely help for complex network problems that are affecting business efficiency but are beyond the scope of your usual network support resources. Progent's CCIE consulting professionals can access your network via state-of-the-art online connectivity technology to deliver quick and affordable analysis and repair of critical network problems.
