Small business IT networks situated in Kentucky can now have instant phone-based help from a Cisco qualified CCIE network professional to help with complex issues involving your IT network. Progent retains the most extensive group of Cisco CCIE support professionals available by phone of any independent service firm in the country. Rates are affordable, charges are by the minute, sign-up is fast, and support is world class.

If your Kentucky network is located away from major urban neighborhoods like Louisville, Lexington, Owensboro, or Bowling Green, access to Cisco certified CCIE engineers could be difficult to find when there's a crisis. This can cause lost income for your company. By utilizing Progent's remote support, you have access to a Cisco CCIE professional who can offer the help to get your computer network running.

What Makes Access to a Cisco-certified CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE is a top-level networking professional who earns this elite title by completing thorough examinations administered by Cisco. CCIEs can tackle even the most complex problems surrounding network deployment, repair, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs work freely with Cisco's in-house engineers in analyzing problems with Cisco IOS software and developing workarounds or obtaining program patches to resolve bugs. Most CCIEs are employed by large corporations or national ISPs, and so their services are not easily accessible to small businesses.

For small and midsize businesses anywhere in Kentucky, Progent offers easy, quick, and cost-effective remote help from Cisco authorized CCIE engineers. CCIEs are highly-qualified networking subject matter experts who earn this top-level certification only after thorough testing by Cisco. CCIEs are able to handle even the most complex problems associated with network architecture, configuration, performance, troubleshooting, and service. Progentís CCIE consultants work closely with Cisco in-house staff in identifying issues with Cisco's IOS software and developing workarounds or acquiring software updates to correct problems. Progent offers fast remote response from a CCIE so you are able to get immediate help for complex network problems that are affecting worker productivity but are beyond the scope of your local IT service providers. Progent's CCIE support professionals can link to your network via advanced remote support tools in order to deliver rapid and affordable diagnosis and remediation of critical network difficulties.
