Small business IT networks located within the state of Kentucky can get immediate phone-based access to a Cisco authorized CCIE network consultant to help with the toughest issues affecting your computer network. Progent retains the largest group of CCIE network consulting experts accessible by phone of any nationwide support firm in the country. Rates are competitive, billing is per minute, engagement is fast, and service is unbeatable.

In case your Kentucky office is located away from larger urban areas like Louisville, Lexington, Owensboro, or Bowling Green, support from qualified CCIE engineers is often hard to get during an emergency. This can cause a loss of productivity for your business. By utilizing Progent's online services, you have access to a CCIE engineer who can deliver the help to keep your system on line.

Why is Access to a Cisco CCIE So Significant?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level network professional who qualifies for this elite title by passing thorough examinations given by Cisco. A CCIE can deal with even the most sophisticated problems associated with network interfacing, troubleshooting, and configuration. Progentís CCIEs communicate directly with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying anomalies with Cisco IOS software and developing workarounds or finding program patches to fix problems. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or nationwide Internet providers, and so their services are not readily accessible to small businesses.

For businesses throughout Kentucky, Progent can provide convenient, quick, and affordable remote help from Cisco CCIE engineers. CCIEs are elite network subject matter experts who are awarded this top-level certification only after thorough testing by Cisco. CCIEs can handle even the most complicated problems surrounding network architecture, setup, performance, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Progentís CCIE professionals work closely with Cisco in-house staff in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS platform and devising workarounds or obtaining patches to correct anomalies. Progent can provide prompt online access to a CCIE so you can receive timely assistance for tough network problems that are impacting business efficiency but are beyond the scope of your local IT support providers. Progent's CCIE consulting engineers can link to your network using state-of-the-art online connectivity tools to provide quick and affordable diagnosis and remediation of urgent network difficulties.
