Small company networks situated anywhere in the state of Iowa can now have instant remote contact with a Cisco authorized CCIE network system engineer to resolve critical problems involving their computer network. Progent offers the services of the most extensive group of CCIE consulting experts accessible remotely of any nationwide support organization in the United States. Rates are reasonable, charges are by the minute, engagement is fast, and service is world class.

If your Iowa company is based beyond larger urban neighborhoods like Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, or Sioux City, access to qualified CCIE experts may be hard to get when there's a crisis. This can cause a drop in revenue for your business. By calling Progent's online services, you have access to a CCIE consultant ready to deliver the assistance to keep your system running.

What Makes Access to a CCIE-certified Consultant So Important?
A CCIE is a world-class network engineer who achieves this prestigious title by passing tough examinations supervised by Cisco. CCIE-qualified engineers can deal with the most complex problems involving network integration, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs work directly with Cisco's in-house engineers in identifying issues with IOS software and creating temporary alternatives or downloading program patches to resolve problems. The vast majority of CCIEs work for large corporations or national ISPs, and so their skills are not readily available to the general public.

For small and midsize companies throughout Iowa, Progent can provide easy, quick, and cost-effective online access to Cisco certified CCIE consultants. Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIEs) are recognized networking experts who earn this prestigious classification only as a result of strenuous testing by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complex problems associated with network planning, implementation, capacity, troubleshooting, and support. Progentís CCIE professionals work intimately with Cisco engineers in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or obtaining patches to correct problems. Progent offers prompt online response from a CCIE so that you are able to receive immediate assistance for complex network problems that are impacting business efficiency but are outside the expertise of your local IT service providers. Progent's CCIE support professionals can access your network using state-of-the-art online support tools to deliver rapid and cost-effective diagnosis and remediation of urgent network problems.
